The Garuna Foundation is a non-profit organization that builds and manages schools in rural Cambodia. Stakeholders identified a need for staff training to correspond with their Garuna Bible curriculum. Local Cambodian staff members have limited internet and are spread throughout the rural countryside. Their training needs to be easy to access on a cell phone.
Rather than developing a course for all staff to complete within the same window of time, this course is developed as a campaign of just-in-time content delivered over a period of time, allowing staff to implement what they have learned in stages.
The Biteable video was developed as one of two prototypes for this course, to present deliverable content at the smallest price point. The needs assessment established that staff members were at a basic skills level and needed essential methods for learner engagement. This prototype presented the content in English, for stakeholder review, but would use Khmer translations during implementation.
A second prototype was presented as a Storyline course, using the same script delivered through English narration with Khmer captions. The second prototype provided a more customizable experience but at a higher price point. The stakeholder ultimately chose the Storyline course offering, to address their long-term staff development goals and allow for future rollout to other countries using this curriculum.
The launch of this course has been delayed (March 2021) due to recent school closings after a spike in Covid cases in Cambodia. When schools reopen, Garuna staff will begin the micro-lesson campaign.
To measure the impact of the course, staff will share their initial feedback after completing the course (Kirkpatrick Evaluation levels 1 & 2). They will also complete a survey after 3 weeks and 6 weeks of applying the content to their work, to measure behavior changes and share data (Kirkpatrick Evaluation levels 3 & 4).
