A Los Angeles County non-profit organization works to maintain a high level of preparedness in its staff by providing engaging and relevant training. The trainings include soft-skills trainings, technical-skills training and any special legal requirements that the agency is expected to train on. One training in particular, the Indian Child Welfare Act, is not meeting the agency’s standard for engaging and relevant training.

The original training consisted of a PDF that learners read followed by a short quiz. The purpose of this capstone project is to evaluate the original training and analyze the available respondent data. The information gathered will inform the new training, ensuring it reflects the sentiments expressed by learners, as well as incorporates current best practices regarding eLearning module design, asynchronous learning and meaningful instructional design concepts.
