Abstract: Using a design-based research approach, a learning module with interactive video introducing learners to the specific structure and particularities of the sexology interview has been developed in three iterative cycles. Text captions appearing during the video focus the learner’s attention to the main dimensions of the interview. The captions are linked to reflection pages with interactive exercises on these subjects. A non linear structure allows for a very flexible navigation in the module. Each iterative design cycle has been thoroughly analyzed regarding usability and learning experience. Results of each development cycle were integrated into the following step and the final version is close to allow online publication. Usability testing showed no major problems. Test users accepted the non linear structure well and satisfaction was good. This research allowed identifying several design rules that could be applied to similar modules.
