The training need

The U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre, which is permanently centred at the Chr. Michelsen Institute in Norway, works to reduce the harmful impact of corruption on society. CMI/U4 offers a 3-week course on the overarching topic of corruption in the health sector. This course is typically only available to U4 members and their affiliates.

The Covid-19 pandemic put a sharp focus on the health sector in general, the impact of pandemics more specifically and corruption in the context of the health sector. CMI/U4 wished to create three 20-minute e-learning modules to provide a wider audience with insight into corruption in the health sector, specifically during health emergencies.

The overall objective for the Corruption in Health Emergencies course was to reduce corruption in health emergencies in order to safeguard human health through knowledgeable and responsive health sector actors.

The learning requirements were as follows:

  • Target audience would typically be academic, diverse and international. Language needed to be global and easy-to-translate. Imagery needed to ensure gender and ethnic ambiguity.
  • Learners were most likely to complete the course on their personal devices. The course therefore needed to work responsively across desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile devices.
  • The e-learning would be available to all on a voluntary basis.

Our bespoke learning solution

The Corruption in Health Sector solution we created comprises three 20-minute modules focusing on corruption during health emergencies. Adapt was the chosen authoring tool to allow a fully responsive and engaging experience, regardless of the device used and location of the learner.

CMI/U4 challenged us to do something new and creative to present information clearly without making it feel like learning. They provided excellent content, allowing us to focus on what we do best: bringing it to life.

We introduced several new components to the course, including parallax scrolling, and the use of embedded Padlets hosted by the client. This required close collaboration between our creative teams to ensure their transformation into effective learning tools. Our development team used Walkgrove’s bespoke Adapt framework to create the new interactive components and designs required.

We worked with CMI’s SMEs to develop case studies for the third module, exploring new and creative ways of approaching branching scenarios to emphasise that battling corruption requires difficult choices that often only minimises but does not eliminate risk. CMI/U4 also had a specific art style from previous projects they wanted us to match. This was a welcome challenge for our graphics team, and the result is an engaging, modern and compelling learning experience.

Key features of the course:

  • Contemporary layout using web design features
  • Includes a range of activities to check understanding
  • Allows the learner to download a PDF summary of each module
