PHII and RISC win Best Performance Support Solution
Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII) and RISC, Inc collaborated to present our project at this year’s DevLearn DemoFest. The project “Creating a Self-Assessment Tool Using cmi5 and xAPI,” demonstrated by Sarah Gilbert and Art Werkenthin, won in the Best Performance Support Solution category. This is RISC’s second win at a DemoFest event, our first in this category and at DevLearn.
The Public Health Informatics Institute’s Informatics Academy, part of the Task Force for Global Health, developed an innovative, informatics capacity–building module using Adobe Captivate. The module included training about the critical success factors of an informatics project with a dashboard-enabled, reusable self-assessment tool.
In order to capture data from the self-assessment tool, PHII decided to leverage xAPI. This allowed for real-time data capture on how public health agencies rated their informatics capabilities at the project level. The data provided insight on additional support the agencies needed to be successful.
The project started with content originally created in Adobe Captivate 9 and published to HTML5. This content had already been set up to send custom xAPI statements. The content had some security issues that were easily solved with cmi5 and still allowed sending all the xAPI statements needed. Interested in learning more about this project? We recently published an article in Learning Solutions Magazine detailing the use case – “Making Any HTML File cmi5-Conformant.”
There were 80 vendors at this year’s DevLearn DemoFest, which made for stiff competition! We’re absolutely thrilled to win for this collaborative project with PHII, Sarah Gilbert, and Sean Putman. Be sure to catch the Best of DemoFest webinar on November 15, 2017 at 1pm ET / 12pm CT / 10am PT. The webinar is open to all with registration.
