Examensarbete för masterexamen
The purpose of this thesis project was to explore possibilities and challenges of translating a traditional education within transfer skills into an e-learning service. Through an iterative design process a proof of concept was created, in terms of a high fidelity prototype of an e-course aimed at assistant nurses. In addition to this, a design component library was produced as a start of a design system that could aid in the design of e-courses within various educational contexts. Finally, a set of design principles with associated guidelines, that can be applied in the design process of e-learning courses for practice oriented education, was summarized based on the insights derived throughout the project. Evaluations with learner representatives and subject matter experts respectively have revealed potential for the proof of concept, which can contribute to the client’s goal of contributing to a standardization of knowledge level for base level nursing personnel. However, further work is needed to finalize the prototype, and to conduct a final summative evaluation of the e-course, evaluating its quality and usability.
