This is an animated presentation about problem solving and process improvements. Students read how the Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle is used in problem-solving and process improvement. In an interactive exercise, students organize process improvement steps following this model.
Type of Material:
• Homework. Read it before class and then apply the theory in the classroom with exercises.
• Could also be used as discussion topic in online class
• Internet Explorer (IE) version 8, Firefox (version 11). These were both used to access the material (the material website supports these browsers as well as Google Chrome).
• Adobe Reader/Flash (needed to additional in-text links leading to other forms/formats of media)
Identify Major Learning Goals:
• Learn about the problem-solving processes.
• Test themselves on what they have learned
Target Student Population:
College and Graduate level students as well as Professional/Corporate learners.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Fundamental knowledge of problem solving and process improvement.
• Overall, the quality of the content is good. There is just the right amount of information provided to the learner regarding the process.
• I like the graphics and use of the embedded play feature and drag n drop interactivity.
• Very schematic and well structured
• Uses cycles and bullet points to present the information.
• It is simple and could provide some other sources in case someone would like to go in-depth.
• Would like to see an example or case study that supports the tutorial being illustrated.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
• Students can learn gain a broad or foundational understanding of the concept presented for process improvement and problem solving using this tutorial.
• The tutorial is a perfect illustration that could be used to support the concept and encourage learning.
• The tutorial is presented for sequential learning, and includes one interactive activity to check /assess knowledge.
• It is not fully interactive. It is required just to click on next and then read the next screen.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
• The tutorial was very easy to use, very intuitive in that it did not require any instructions of use.
• The design of the tutorial was visually appealing, clear quality • Introduction to the tutorial was short and simple.
• It is not fully interactive.
• No exercises, no feedback, no decision making…
• It could be good to have the number of slides that you have seen out of the total number of slides it has. This could help to see in what level they are at all times.
• You need a very motivated audience to be engaged with the format of the material.
Other Issues and Comments:
Overall, I like what the contributor has shard and presented with the tutorial and interactivity. As a researcher and educator, I find that you can never really have too many sources to pull from and share with students or colleagues. I really liked the tutorial.
