Being consistent in your JigsawBox is a great way to make an impact with your clients. Think about how all of your modules will look before you start creating them. It’s helpful that they all follow a similar pattern and share the same look and feel.
For example, you may want to start with an Introduction, put a video or audio recording after the introduction to deliver the coaching/learning, under your video/audio offer a way to download it for those who want to listen on-the-go, then have a summary section.
For your main headings like Introduction, Media and Summary you may want to make them all the same font and color. This is a great time to use your branding colors! To make a bigger impact, perhaps find an image that is descriptive for each of those sections and use that same image there too!
Under your module, in the questions section you may want to ask one question that is the same in every module, something like: “What is the one thing you learned this week that made the biggest impact on you?” Then in the documents area you can upload either a transcript of your audio recording or slides from your video presentation.
You now have a great format to use for all of your modules. To make this easier to use again and again for each module you create, you can now develop this as a template. When you are happy with your look, simply create one module in this format and name it something like: Module Template. You will only need your basic information, the section name, images, etc., you can leave out any actual video/audios for now.
Then each time you create a new module for your program you can follow these steps:
- Open your Module Template
- Click the HTML button and copy all of the HTML code.
- Open up a new module, click the HTML button and paste in your HTML code
You will now have the standard format of your module ready to use so you will only need to type in the rest of the content and not worry about any formatting! This tempalte can be used time and time again and you’ll have a great looking program with consistent modules that will ensure your clients can learn quickly and easily.
