MS SoftServe is a web-based learning environment that uses methods based in the theories of cognitive science, theories that inform its design, thereby creating an effective learning resource in a wide variety of subjects. With the design based in a customizable interface, MS SoftServe provides dynamic learning modules that accommodate the diversity of user preferences. This aspect of the website, one that caters to the emotional preference of the user, makes it especially effective for those learning about a change in their health status. The most significant characteristic of a person experiencing this change is anxiety. Individuals who have received a diagnosis of an incurable chronic illness are usually filled with anxiety. This anxiety has been found to be a significant obstacle in learning. While in small amounts anxiety serves as a motivator to learn, the large emotional impact of a diagnosis frequently overwhelms the patient and prevents them from seeking out further information. Individuals with a new diagnosis need to learn about their condition as it changes and evolves over time. This education will not only allow them to be pro-active in their treatment and care, but it may also give them the opportunity to gain a sense of control at a time when they are more likely to be at a loss for it. MS SoftServe is unique in the field of web-based education. It is a learning environment that addresses this challenge and more to cater to an individual’s emotional needs in healthcare learning.
