Epilepsy Journey

Epilepsy Journey is an online learning environment that incorporates an overarching journey metaphor as a central design element. When patients log in to Epilepsy Journey, they are presented with a map of ten different lands, each representing a distinct instructional unit. For example, the problem-solving unit is represented as Problem-solving Peak and the unit on sleep and stress is called the Land of Nod. Patients are guided on their journey through the different lands by a cartoon character named Brainy who acts as a virtual coach and guide, providing assistance and encouragement. As patients make their way through each land, they encounter a variety of multimedia and game-like features, including animations, videos, and mini-games. Patients are able to track their status using a progress bar and earn digital badges upon completion of each unit. Epilepsy Journey was built using the WordPress content management system.
