Abstract

There is a noted shortage of educational resources to help people facing terminal illness. Completing a Life is an interactive multimedia CD-ROM and web site developed to address this issue. Many content and design challenges were addressed during development. The resulting product includes a carefully crafted interplay of content, navigation, interactivity, and look-and-feel to create an approachable, empowering resource for a subject that is emotionally difficult for most people to address. Completing a Life serves as a model for medical education, combining personal stories with task-based information contained within a virtual environment.
