Design Considerations for the Development of Interactive Video (IV) in Nurse Education.
Chandra, Peter; And Others
A computer assisted learning (CAL) program in the area of intravenous drug administration developed by the Nightingale Project is currently being used in a number of nursing schools and hospitals throughout the United Kingdom. The success of this program and the emergence of interactive video as a significant training medium persuaded the Nightingale Project to carry out a feasibility study into the requirements for a successful implementation of an interactive video for nursing education. This paper describes the various levels of detail involved in the design of the video, the knowledge elicitation procedures that were used, the range of teaching strategies employed, and the various problems encountered together with the solutions developed to overcome them. The aims of the feasibility study were to: (1) identify the range of different skills required to design interactive video courseware; (2) identify the resource implications in terms of staff time and hardware and software requirements; (3) assess the likely availability of skills within the nursing profession to carry out the design and implementation of such a project; and (4) determine the requirements for and cost of technical support from outside the profession. The need for a team approach to the design and development process involving subject matter experts and designers led by an educational systems analyst is highlighted. Task analysis charts and instructional design blueprints are included. (7 references) (GL)
