Abstract: Adults living in Hawai’i are constantly exposed to sunlight. These individuals will therefore need to practice healthy skin care practices to help maintain good skin. However, many of these individuals are unaware of the harmful effects sunscreen can have on ocean life. The purpose of this instructional design project was to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of a curated website for adults living in Hawai’i and their attitudes about the benefits of sustainable sunscreen, as well as the impact on Hawai’i’s natural environment. Nineteen adults living in Hawai’i were exposed to a curated website created on Wix to help educate them on safe sunscreen in hopes of making environmentally friendly sunscreen choices in the future. Surveys were provided on Google Forms and collected and analyzed using Google Sheets for grouping and trends. Participants were provided time to explore the website independently or as needed with assistance. The results of the study showed high levels of information learned, and the participants found the topic important and relevant to their lives. Individuals who visit the beach frequently were motivated to make changes in the future to help with ocean preservation.
Description: The purpose of this instructional design project was to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of a curated website for adults living in Hawai’i and their attitudes about the benefits of sustainable sunscreen, as well as the impact on Hawai’i’s natural environment. Nineteen adults living in Hawai’i were exposed to a curated website created on Wix to help educate them on safe sunscreen in hopes of making environmentally friendly sunscreen choices in the future. Learners completed two surveys on GoogleForms to describe their feelings and knowledge towards content pertaining to the topic before and after viewing the website. Data was collected and presented on TCC to describe their attitudes afterwards.
