Use TASKSTEPS and explain a (software) task to a participant that they can work through in fixed steps. Within TASKSTEPS, the participant can choose the working method that is suitable for their task. The task is presented in a ‘walk-through’, demonstrating to the participant how the task is carried out in incremental steps. In ‘Practice’, it’s then the participant’s turn to work through the task. This is followed by the ‘Quiz’ in which the participant can check the knowledge (they have acquired) with different types of questions. Finally, the ‘Quick Guide’ provides a step-by-step overview of the task, which the participant can download as a PDF.
The format features compact units or mini-modules that focus on one, individual task that is simulated one step at a time. Directive feedback helps to guide the participant if needed, motivating them to take the right steps.
