ITU – Climate Change
The International Telecommunications Union is working closely with its partners to achieve a climate neutral ICT industry. As part of its work ITU wanted to develop a short e-learning module on climate change.
The module had to be developed in two weeks and Kineo responded to the challenge by developing this module on ITU and Climate Change. This module also highlights how e-learning can reduce your carbon footprint, so take a look at the environmental benefits of e-learning.
The challenge was to communicate simply and clearly the key messages in no more than ten minutes using an innovative, attractive interface which could be updated using a simple text editor.
A lot has been written about climate change and the ITU has spearheaded a number of key initiatives. The first challenge was to work on the content and edit this down into a number of clear sections, each with key messages. E-learning is about delivering more with less. The ability to edit down complex content into clear messages and to construct a learning narrative was key for this module.
We decided to move away from the more traditional Next and Back style e-learning navigation and to adopt something more akin to Coverflow as promoted by the iPhone. The final design creates a user experience which is engaging, yet simple to use and intuitive – and hopefully enjoyable.
Maintenance and Updates
We designed the programme so that each screen is easily updateable. Screen text and images can be changed in a matter of minutes allowing ITU to update the module themselves without any reference back to Kineo.
