The Learning Hub’s stakeholder manager, Amy Ashford, shares her experience of leading on the migration of the eLearning Repository.
As part of my role, I am leading on the migration of HEE’s digital educational services and platforms to the Learning Hub. The migration of these platforms plays an integral part of the vision for the Learning Hub, offering the one ‘go to place’ to discover, explore and widen reach of learning resources to colleagues across the health and care system.
Over the last 12 months Health Education England’s Technology Enhanced Learning (HEE TEL) team has been supporting content owners from the NHS eLearning Repository in completing the readiness activities necessary to successfully migrate elearning content and to continue the service of accessing these resources via the electronic staff record (ESR).
A critical milestone in supporting the migration and continuation in service was to develop and release the ESR link feature in the Learning Hub. As part of the design and development of this feature, the TEL team has been keen to enhance the functionality of the legacy system by offering varying visibility settings to the content owner. In the future there will also be the ability to play the elearning resource within the Learning Hub itself, either to support other users in exploring others’ content and/or to widen reach to other users.
I am delighted to confirm both the successful migration of 1153 resources and the ESR link feature were both completed ahead of schedule on 29 June 2021. This is a fantastic achievement that was aided by the engagement of individual content owners successfully completing the readiness activities.
Since the launch of the ESR link feature, it is fantastic to see new SCORM 1.2 elearning resources being contributed to the Learning Hub every day. By sharing resources, content owners are contributing to the success of the Learning Hub and in realising the vision; by the workforce, for the workforce.
It only takes a couple of minutes to contribute a resource to the Learning Hub. Simply select the ‘contribute a resource’ button on the homepage. To find out more on how to contribute SCORM 1.2 resources visit the Learning Hub support page.
