The Learning Hub will be a new digital platform that will provide easy access to a wide range of resources that are pertinent to education and training in health and care. Users will be able to contribute digital resources (including e-learning, video, audio, images, documents, web links, articles etc) and search, and access the variety of learning resources that will have been contributed by stakeholders and the health and care workforce to support system readiness and recovery from the pandemic.
Health Education England’s (HEE) Technology Enhanced Learning team will be releasing the Learning Hub, with core functionality, at the end of May 2020. The Learning Hub is being released to support the Coronavirus (COVID-19) response by enabling the health and care workforce to share and access resources during the pandemic.
New features will be released frequently in line with the original plan for the functionality of the Learning Hub in its Beta phase and this will include the migration of two national platforms: the NHS eLearning Repository and eWIN. Information on the planned migration activities will be shared in the coming weeks and well in advance of the migrations taking place.
Work to prepare for the two migrations has been ongoing and continues to progress.
Publishers of content on the NHS eLearning Repository are urged to continue with the data cleansing activities necessary to ensure current resources are successfully migrated. These include ensuring the publisher’s name, email address and organisation are correct and more focused data cleansing is undertaken to deliver an accurate and complete set of data, optimising the resources’ searchability once migrated to the Learning Hub. We need the assistance of publishers of content on the NHS eLearning Repository to review and update the data fields listed in the table below, following the guidance provided.
