Some background. We are accredited by both EPA (Federal) and California to perform environmental training. We offer a number of conventional classroom classes plus an online "refresher" class. Recently, we have learned the EPA is requiring a "hands-0n" component for all "refreshers." Since ours is online, that presents a problem.
So, we are looking to develop some on-line "hands on" exercises that will satisfy EPA. We have a few basic ideas that involve a simple simulation in which a student would make some choices and then follow a step-by-step protocol to perform a desired task. For instance they would first select 3-4 "tools" from a tool kit. Then they would use those "tools" to perform a simple task.
