CrashCourse Concussion Training N/A  

This training is provided free from our partnership with TeachAids. This fundamental CrashCourse Concussion education product was created with user-centered formative design research studies. It synthesizes first-person and third-person experiential perspectives to inform and motivate learning about concussion signs and symptoms, correcting myths and misconceptions, recognizing the seriousness of reporting and understanding the importance of working with a physician to determine the best strategy for improvement. It integrates these topics into a narrative story-driven format with the learner at the center of the education experience.
 
Upon receiving a concussion, the learner is faced with a moral dilemma: to “Take a Knee” or “Stay in the Game.” Each decision leads the learner down a different path to reflect the consequences (both positive and negative) of their decision. This twelve-minute production can be accessed through the link above as a standard video and in virtual reality (Google Cardboard | Oculus Rift/Rift S | Oculus Go).
 
At the end of this 12-minute interactive video course, the learner will have the opportunity to answer questions to test their knowledge and receive a Certificate of Completion.
