Education Development Center
The US Department of Veterans Affairs asked Education Development Center to develop an accessible online version of their print and CD-ROM based coaching tools to help veterans experiencing PTSD acquire and develop skills to help with their post-service transition, and focused on areas of skill development, such as problem-solving.
EDC and Illumina adapted the materials and produced a series of engaging, interactive modules (www.ptsd.va.gov/apps/ptsdcoachonline) that include videos as well as online tools that veterans and “or anyone who needs help with upsetting feelings. Trauma survivors, their families, or anyone coping with stress can benefit.”
Illumina Interactive’s long-time partner, Education Development Center, wanted an online portal to share their health promotion tools and resources with parents, educators, and community organizations seeking innovative interventions to address some of the biggest challenges in adolescent health. EDC had developed the tools and resources, addressing teen health topics such as physical health, alcohol and drugs, driving, dating and sex, bullying and cyberbullying, and violence, over several decades.
Illumina Interactive designed and developed a Drupal-based portal to house the audio and video recordings, produced with prominent actors and actresses, online documents and short e-learning modules. The site (www.healthpromotionsprograms.org) utilized a fully responsive design to support a wide range of devices, and included both an English and a Spanish version.
