Developing Hypermediated, Videodisc Training for Child Welfare Personnel: Bringing Visually Rich Training to Rural Areas.
Knupfer, Nancy Nelson
This paper addresses some design considerations for computer-produced visual displays that are intended for either local or remote audiences of social workers. The project, "Building Family Foundations," expects to design and produce 10 different educational modules, including: child development; family issues--separation and attachment; family based treatment strategies; legal issues and court procedures; professional ethics; practice skills I and II; stress management; abuse and neglect; and adolescents. Many considerations must be made in the design process: Who is the audience? How should the modules be used? module product components; features; screen design; movement logical flow; team approach; features; and video master tape format. Information display can be organized into three perspectives within the image, structure, meaning, and impact, and each of those is discussed. The "Building Family Foundations" project incorporates the best features of multimedia instruction, and hopes to enhance learning through good instructional design and appropriate use of visual imagery.
