Health Education England’s (HEE) Technology Enhanced Learning team released the Learning Hub, with core functionality, at the end of May 2020 and would like to encourage more organisations with resources to share and contribute to the platform.
The Learning Hub is a new digital platform that provides easy access to a wide range of resources that are pertinent to education and training in health and care. Users can now contribute digital resources (including e-learning, video, audio, images, documents, web links, articles etc) and search and access the variety of learning resources that have been contributed by stakeholders and the health and care workforce.
Since the launch of the Learning Hub, stakeholders have contributed over 500 learning resources. Resources have been contributed by medical schools, operational delivery networks, training hubs, clinical commissioning groups, professional bodies, simulation networks, charities and social care organisations. These contributions offer and support a wide range of training delivery from videos and webinar recordings, e-learning, slide presentations, Q&A packs, simulation scripts, lesson plans to web links.
Some examples of contributed content:

Dr Neil Ralph, Head of Technology Enhanced Learning at HEE, said: “We have been pleased with the initial volume of contributed resources to the recently launched Learning Hub and would like to encourage even more organisations to consider sharing their resources so colleagues across the health and care sector can benefit from being able to access them. The resources shared on the Learning Hub play a pivotal role in its success, in its vision for collaboration and supporting learners.”
Guidance is available to support stakeholders who are contributing resources to ensure good quality accompanying data, optimising the resource information and searchability in the Learning Hub
