We were asked to create a desktop educational experience on artificial intelligence (AI) with Didacte and Captivate. We decided to focus on how Concordia University students can use AI to help monitor and improve their health without making recommendations.
We created learner profiles to connect to our targeted learner’s needs and planned the experience through a user experience planes outline.
After researching different AI solutions that individuals may use, we grouped them into use categories. From this, we brainstormed creative layout ideas and came up with an organ-specific theme. Each category was assigned to a relevant organ (i.e., sleep was assigned to the brain). To maintain simplicity, we considered alternative options to narrow the number of organs to five (ex., a stop smoking app could be lungs or brain). We decided to use Captivate to construct this organ-themed module to maximize engagement. For the remaining modules, we used Didacte to chunk the information and incorporate media.
