Abstract: Abstract: When students from all over the world come to Hawai‟i, they
are not necessarily prepared with the knowledge to handle a tsunami. The
purpose of this instructional design project is to develop and evaluate a
web-based instructional module about tsunami preparedness for international students at the University of Hawai‟i at Manoa. Participants
evaluated the module for relevancy and effectiveness, and data was
collected to measure knowledge gained through participation. Overall the
participants found the module to be a useful one for the future. The group
completed pre- and post-tests and showed significant improvement scoring an average of 64% in the pre-test and 96% in the post-test. Participants reported favorably about the images, videos and interactive applets, although results are limited by a small sample size. Data collected also suggest that revisions to the module should exclude some of the test items and include more multimedia content.
