Introduction The Covid19 pandemic significantly impacted the education sector. It resulted in

reforming education strategy, remote learning, and using online tools. The virtual campus is

adapted to promote awareness and manage education in various courses in the American regions.

It is a great platform but needs changes to make trainees more attractive and accessible.

A. Objective to Improve and Key Actions

The design of the home page needs some changes. It needs:

• Outline website goals.

• Gathering project specifications, like budget, timeline, and site content (images and

written copy) prepared helps designers provide accurate quotes.

• Submit a brief.

I. Designing a website can be a lot of work, but it’s essential to take it seriously for an

educational institution to succeed. Here is some suggestion that the web design is up to par for

today’s internet users.

1. User-Friendly Navigation

A design architecture should be in order and categorized according to different subjects, not

confusing and frustrating users. It allows for easy navigation throughout the rest of the website.

It would be better if the menu bar moved to the top of the page and menu options contained

different subcategories, such as various languages.

It also should have a summary explanation about virtual campus, activities, and goals with an

image or video that shows or explain it shortly.

If the courses were categorized into different topics, according to sectors of intervention, they

would be easier to access; for example, we can organize them into the following topics:

1. Microsoft and social media,

2. Prevention (a. communicable diseases (Zika virus), b. non-communicable diseases)

3. Emergency intervention (Online fundamentals course for the management of emergency

operations centers).

2. Keep Website Design Simple and Easy to Process

Too many features and items of content on a single page can be overwhelming for the modern

user. If a visitor gets consistently distracted by an overload of information on a single page, they

might not be able to comprehend the primary purpose of the content anyway.

There are 40 courses at the virtual campus that are classified into three languages. It would be

great to have

I.Background The crisis caused by the Covid19 pandemic has serious implications for the education

sector in all countries of the Americas region, bringing with it some challenges and opportunities for the

reform of education systems with an emergency approach.

The most widely used strategy currently is remote learning using online tools, but also podcasts and

other resources that require less data usage by downloading them on a mobile device to ensure

educational continuity

II.Justification The Virtual Campus is a useful tool for easy access to. The Campus has self-directed and

directed courses; this model adjusts to the complex schedules of volunteers, staff and the general

public. One of the characteristics that makes the Campus a fundamental platform in the framework of

the Covid-19 pandemic, is the interaction in the whole teaching-learning process with individual and

continuous monitoring, encouraging participation and collaborative learning, taking advantage of all the

tools provided by the e-learning platform: forums, chat, email, interactive content, case studies,

discussion forums, self-assessment tests, links to external websites, infographics, videos, bibliography,

news, among others. In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the National Societies have had to

rethink the ways to train themselves, manage their networks, disseminate their information, and access

essential educational material for their work.

The Campus comes to contribute and provide new possibilities through information technologies, which

are updated and changing every day. The current platform uses Adobe Flash Player. Flash is a computer

application included in the multimedia player category (it was made up of animation software, plus a

player or virtual machine that hosted the software and the specific information it contained). On

December 31, 2020, Adobe ended technical support for the program, ending 24 years of existence. This

means that as of January 2021 it will no longer receive security updates or technical support. Since this

change, many of the learning platforms and operating programs have had to look for alternatives to this

change. The Campus is no exception, it will have to make the transition to another application and thus

streamline the way material and courses are displayed and reproduced in order to adjust to a more

modern and efficient technology. This change is also important as it will improve the face (visual and

interface aesthetics) of the platform, making it easier for users to understand and use its interactive

elements.

A modern and clean design will be sought that goes hand in hand with the accessibility provided by

mobile devices (cell
