Assessment

The first step of HBDIinteractive is completing the HBDI® assessment. Upon entering your access key and selecting your group, you will be presented a form requiring some general information. PLEASE NOTE - that it is VERY important on this form that you enter your internet email address correctly (e.g., jsmith@hbdi.com). There will be two automated emails including important information sent to you as you begin the assessment and upon completion of the assessment.

After you complete the HBDI® assessment, you will be immediately presented with instructions for accessing the HBDIinteractive program. At this time you will have the option to move forward with the HBDIinteractive experience or choose to continue at a later time. Click the continue button or click on the option to receive an email with a link and your personal “identifiers” so that you may continue the HBDIinteractive at a future time.

HBDI® Results -At the end of Module 3 – HBDI® Results, you will be directed to download and/or save your HBDI® profile results.  Please do this! You will want to keep this available so that you may reference it from time to time or use it in a future face-to-face training session. While the HBDI® assessment can be taken in a variety of languages, the HBDIinteractive is presently only available in English. Your HBDI® profile results will be displayed within the HBDIinteractive in English as well.  <Top>

Simulation

The learning program has been designed so that learners must complete the “Introduction” and “Fundamentals” modules before receiving their HBDI® profile results in module 3. Upon completion of module 3, a learner will have the ability to view any of the program modules. However, the recommended learning path is to complete all the modules in sequence.

Once the program begins, you will be prompted to enter your Username and Password. You would have received this information in an automated email at the time of completion of the HBDI® assessment.  <Top>

Navigation

Navigation through each module is accomplished by using the large arrow buttons on each screen. To help guide the learner, these buttons only becomes active after the narration is complete or the learner has completed the required interactive activity.

Additional navigation is provided within each module in the form of a sub-navigation bar near the top of the interface. This bar contains dots that that can be clicked to navigate to specific screens within the module. The dots also visually show the user which components of a learning module have been completed, so a learner can track their progress through a module. Dots in the sub-navigation bar will remain disabled until a learner completes the required activities in the previous sections of the module.  <Top>

Journal

Another key feature of the HBDIinteractive program is the journal, accessible at all times by clicking on the 'Journal' button in the top right-hand corner of the program interface. The journal is a rich text editor that allows the learner to create their own notes during the course. In addition, portions of the journal will be auto-populated with data from different learning activities as a user completes them in the course. New additions to the journal append to the end of the previous entry.  <Top>

Resource Guide

Finally, a resource guide contains more detailed, supporting information that a learner may choose to view by clicking the 'Resource Guide' button in the top right-hand corner of the interface. Within the guide are hyperlinks that allow the learner to navigate through the guide.

Both the journal and the resource guide can be viewed without interrupting a learner’s progress through the course. When opened, the course will pause and the journal and resource guide will appear over top of the main content area. Once closed, the course will resume.  <Top>

Sound

HBDIinteractive contains voice-over narration as part of the overall instructions. The course interface contains audio controls in the bottom right-hand corner. You can manually control playback, mute or un-mute the audio, or select the closed-captioning button ‘CC’ to read the voice-over text.

No sound indicates a configuration problem on your computer. Check the volume level setting and increase the volume if necessary.  Click the volume control in the Windows system tray. It looks like a speaker. Make sure that mute is not selected, and increase the volume if necessary.

If you still hear no sound, check your audio settings in the Windows Control Panel. In the audio tab, click the volume button under sound playback. Check the volume levels for wave and the master volume control, and make sure neither one is muted.

While the HBDI® assessment can be taken in a variety of languages, the HBDIinteractive is presently only available in English. Your HBDI® profile results will be displayed within the HBDIinteractive in English as well.
