Center for the Application of Prevention Technologies (CAPT)
The US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) wanted to increase the skills of CAPT staff members in conducting focus groups.
In this module, Illumina used both still photos and video to illustrate some of the challenges for a new leader in conducting a focus group, and to introduce the leader to recommended practices for their situation. Many different interactivities help the learner check their understanding of concepts and techniques, and their application of what they’ve learned for a particular scenario.
The US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) wanted to provide a variety of learning offerings through the Center for the Application of Prevention Technologies, but did not have a suitable Learning Management System in place to provide such courses.
Illumina implemented an LMS for CAPT, using the open-source Moodle platform. Illumina branded the site according to CAPT requirements, and also provided a tailored, clean user interface and navigation. Learners have access to CAPT courses, and the site provides additional functionality, such as learner discussion forums with indication of new forum entries.
