Problem

First-year college students often find themselves facing the challenge of navigating independent living, including managing their laundry. Many students arrive on campus without prior experience in sorting laundry, leading to confusion and frustration when it comes time to wash their clothes.

 

Without proper guidance, they may mix colors improperly, leading to clothing damage or discoloration. Additionally, incorrect sorting can result in ineffective cleaning and may contribute to the perpetuation of stains or odors. The lack of understanding in this fundamental skill not only impacts the students' ability to care for their clothing but also affects their overall well-being and comfort in their new living environment.

Solution

To address the challenge of teaching first-year college students how to sort laundry effectively, I created an eLearning course designed to provide comprehensive instruction and guidance in this essential life skill. This course utilizes interactions and practical demonstrations to engage students and facilitate their learning process. Through clear explanations and visual demonstrations, students will learn the principles of laundry sorting, including sorting by color, fabric type, and soil levels.

 

They will also gain an understanding of common laundry symbols and their meanings. Additionally, the course will provide tips for stain removal and garment care to ensure that students can properly maintain their clothing. By completing this eLearning course, first-year college students will acquire the necessary knowledge and confidence to sort their laundry effectively, contributing to their overall success and well-being in their new college environment.
