How a student eLearning class project at Metro State University of Denver “went national” and became an effective organ transplant information campaign.
More than 120,000 men, women and children currently await lifesaving organ transplants. Tens of thousands more need life-enhancing tissue or cornea transplants each year.
Explaining the transplant process to both donors and recipients as well as medical professionals is a big challenge. It is often a heart-breaking decision for the donor families and a difficult task for medical professionals. They must deal with both the emotional issues as well as the complex logistics of organ and tissue transplant.
The non-profit network known as Donate Life, and its affiliate, Midwest Transplant Network of Kansas City needed a way to inform hundreds of medical, DMV and funeral home professionals about this complicated process.
Evergreen Online Learning of Colorado created several presentations as well as eLearning modules with compelling video to accomplish the task. The modules use camera video extensively, interspersed with knowledge checks, role playing and testimonial videos to tell the story. At the end of the module, a pass/fail quiz is administered and a certificate of completion is automatically generated.
