Abstract

This paper describes the use of two different risk assessment strategies during the design and development of a complex authentic task-based e-learning program developed by the World Health Organization (WHO). The first strategy involved the use of expert reviewers and the second strategy employed the engagement of a risk assessment expert facilitator. This approach enabled the WHO design team to identify risks in advance and employ control and mitigation strategies to eliminate or reduce the risks that were revealed by the two risk assessments.
