Over 40 lessons in English and Spanish are organized into four inclusive categories: Women, Infants/Toddlers, Children, and Family. Each lesson incorporates carefully selected vocabulary for appropriate reading levels, and attractive visuals that communicate USDA-approved health and nutrition-related content. The uncluttered and intuitive user interface aligns with research-based recommendations to encourage low/limited literacy users. Ease of use is achieved with minimal scrolling and responsive design. Lessons are self-paced with optional audio available. Subject matter comprehension is achieved through fun and engaging, interactive lessons.
After a lesson is selected, participants are greeted with simple Did You Know facts regarding the topic followed by several pages of additional information highlighted by colorful graphics and photographs. Our creatively inspired WIC lessons take a step beyond the static, traditional Q&A teaching approach of the past. The colorful images, animations and interactive activities keep participants focused and actively engaged in the learning process, thereby encouraging subject matter retention and learning enjoyment. Content is designed to meet the comprehension level of the average participant. Playful sound effects enhance the learning experience.
This expanded feature allows participants to reference the date and time a lesson was completed. They can view a useful, personalized list of lessons and resources they have bookmarked throughout the site. In addition, they can create personal reminders for themselves or to use as communications with their WIC nutritionist.
This feature has been greatly expanded to include a wide variety of resources on WIC-related topics and is always available for user access. Participants can increase their nutrition knowledge through WIC-approved videos, links, and publications. They can find useful tips and recipes as well as a list of lessons pertaining to a specific topic. Most importantly, by bookmarking items of interest, they can create a personalized library of information tailored just for them in the My Notebook feature. Files are updated and managed by WIC staff.
This valuable new, informative feature provides in depth nutritional information about how and why to make healthy choices using foods from the WIC Foods list. It provides participants with tips and ideas on how to make the best use of their WIC Cash Value Voucher (CVV). The topics covered are Fruits & Vegetables, Grains, Protein, Dairy, Infant Foods, Breastfeeding, and Infant Formula. There are quick links to relevant resources, recipes and lessons.
This is one of our most exciting new features! With this tool, staff have the ability to create dynamic, personal Q&A experiences. First, multiple levels of questions and answers are created. The participant's series of selections ultimately guide them to materials and resources that are specific to their needs. With the ability of WIC staff to create an unlimited number of Decision Trees, participants can be confident that they can return to the site 24/7 for reliable, factual advice when they need it.
In our secure, streamlined and intuitive Back Office section, authorized staff members can view reports on users and lesson activity. They can confirm that lesson completions have been pushed to internal state-run MIS systems (if applicable). They can leave messages and reminders on participants' My Notebook pages. Resources and Decision Trees as well as survey questions and answers are managed through the Back Office. For a tour of the Back Office functions please contact us.
