AlcoholEdu incorporates the latest evidence-based prevention methods to create a highly personalized user experience that inspires students to reflect on and consider changing their drinking behaviors. AlcoholEdu's state-of-the art course content:

1. Builds Baseline Knowledge

“I liked how the program gave me information in a more entertaining way, as opposed to the ordinary articles that usually bore students and make them less likely to pay attention. I learned a lot from this program and I actually enjoyed it.

  • Interactive lessons incorporate multiple evidence-based learning theories in order to achieve specific behavior change objectives.
  • Correct social norms messaging is emphasized using real student survey data and analysis of media and advertisements.
  • Real-life student success stories encourage participants to adopt positive behaviors and build self-efficacy.
  • Entertaining format engages students in a meaningful way, featuring a story narrative and activities that reflect the way millenials communicate (blogs, IM chats, videos, etc.).

2. Motivates Action

Survey-Driven Personalization: Video AlcoholEdu delivers a personalized experience to all types of students (committed non-drinkers, situational non-drinkers, light/moderate drinkers, high-risk drinkers, etc.), based on their responses to the course’s initial survey. For example, frequent high-risk drinkers receive a highly personalized Brief Motivational Intervention (BMI).

User-Driven Personalization: “What would you do?” scenarios help students practice and reinforce safe decision-making; blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exercise allows students to examine their own drinking habits; policy debates and other discussions boost student interest and engagement.

3. Supports DecisionsMakingPlans

“Personal Plan” tool allows students to set personal goals based on their drinking choices and provides highly specific strategies and suggestions to help them achieve these goals.

Booster emails delivered to students throughout the year connect them back to their Personal Plan to help them monitor their progress. Students know these emails as “AlcoholEdu Check-Ins.”
