Amount Us and Phishing – combining training with pop culture
I always like when eLearning and popular culture mix. It provides a nice attention grabber to help learners keep interested in the topic. The whole point of Among Us is to decided who…is…suspicious or “sus.”
But how to translate that to the real world? Phishing emails. We are bombarded with them and have to constantly ask ourselves “is this sus?”
I like the content. Rally useful. But navigation was a bit misleading to me. Initially, I clicked on an email, trying to examine it. I should have used the characters. I know that instructions are included, but, like myself, a lot of users will try to use it intuitively. So maybe an introductory slide, with instructions would be useful.
Anyway. Great job.
Regarding some comments of not reading the instructions, I think it would be more obvious if you click on the email to make it larger (that is what I expected just like a webpage does for viewing photos larger) and then the characters might have a “Choose Me” either as part of their outfit or on hover.
You never can give enough training / practice to people on phishing – I like it!
Great strategy to merge popular culture and eLearning – definitely will catch the attention of many learners who either know it or even just heard of it. Would have been nice to have an ‘are you sure?’ option when choosing which email. I, in true learner style (some of them), did not read the directions below and just clicked on the email lol. Great job!
The design is good. Only thing, and I don’t know if this is a realworld example, but I saw no difference in the emails after multiple reviews of both. If it is not realworld and only showing a template or some such example, then I like it very much. It will be relatable to a great many more people mixing in current cultural norms.
