Interactive video tutorials for hearing aid users – HEAR IT
Watch sample clips below from the new and exclusive HEAR IT interactive video tutorials for first time hearing aid users and their family and friends.
The content of the tutorials is based on principles of learning theory and has been developed in collaboration with over 30 hearing aid users to ensure the tutorials engage the targeted audience and provide optimal learning. Each self-contained tutorial is structured with learning outcomes, multi-media (videos, photos, animations), and an interactive quiz as well as powerful testimonials, anecdotes and humour.
There are a total of seven tutorials (1 hour in duration) which cover topics on:
- Getting to know your hearing aids
- How to insert your hearing aids
- What to expect when wearing hearing aids
- Adapting to wearing your hearing aids
- Communication tactics
- Using the phone and other devices
- Hearing aid care and troubleshooting
The tutorials have been evaluated to assess patient benefit in a randomised controlled trial in 230 first-time hearing aid users. We are anticipating that those who interact with the tutorials will get more benefit from their hearing aids. The results will be due towards the end of the year - watch this space!
