The Learning Hub will be a powerful new digital platform that will provide easy access to a wide range of education and training resources for the health and care workforce. It is being developed by Health Education England’s (HEE) national Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Programme.
The Learning Hub will be launched in Beta* early in 2020 with the following functionality:
- A personalised homepage with a style that will be aligned to other popular platforms, providing a familiar web experience
- An opportunity for individuals to contribute resources. Organisations will shortly be invited to contribute content to be available when the Learning Hub launches
- Forums in which to collaborate and share useful resources. The forums will encourage discussions to take place around the content, and networks to form around areas of shared interest and act as a Community of Practice.
The Learning Hub is being developed using agile methodology in line with Government Digital Service’s (GDS) principles, which puts user research at the centre of the design and development. User research to date has been incredibly successful and, as such, the scope of the Learning Hub has been expanded to ensure the development responds to the feedback from users.
Following the launch of the Learning Hub early in 2020, development will continue to provide the platform users have said they want and need. During this phase of development, other existing systems including HEE’s e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) Hub will remain available in their current location.
