Human Resources Basics Course

Instructional Design/Interactive, 2016

LearnX Impact Awards 2017 Gold Winner
(Best Induction/Onboarding Project category)

An online course about the basics of human resources within the Public Sector, using gamification principles.


All new staff have to learn about human resources as part of their induction. To avoid the dry nature of the topic, the solution was to put a fun and humorous spin to it. The content was scenario-based using various work situations that the learner may later encounter during work.


I led and managed this project from concept to production. This included:

  • Collaboration with subject matter experts (staff from HR)

  • Establishing a learner sequence

  • Developing story ideas and branching options

  • Scripting the content for online delivery

  • Storyboarding

  • Creating the media assets

  • Prototyping and building

  • Testing and launch


All production was done in-house, and the course launched to positive feedback.  The course, as part of an induction suite, won Gold at the LearnX Impact Awards 2017.
