The Learning Hub team has created a new area on the platform that details service updates and the new features and functionalities of each release, to keep users up to date with the platform’s development.
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. Organisations and users can contribute and share resources for those in health and care to access.
The service updates and releases area displays, in chronological order, information about what’s new on the Learning Hub, bug fixes that have been completed and background changes that have been made to the platform.
Since the Learning Hub was launched in May 2020 there have already been an additional eight releases which include functionality for users to be able to:
- rate a resource by awarding an overall score of between 1 and 5
- share their opinion on their search experience via a feedback form so the Learning Hub team can learn from users’ experiences and improve it in the future
- mark a resource as containing potentially sensitive content when contributing; enabling other users to make an informed choice whether they wish to proceed with viewing the content.
As the Learning Hub is still in its Beta phase there is still so much more to come with many additional features and functionality to be delivered which will be released in line with the product roadmap, due to be published October 2020.
As the Learning Hub is being designed based on users’ needs and developed using an agile, iterative approach new features are being released regularly, in line with the original plan for the Learning Hub in its current Beta phase. This agile approach means bugs are fixed as well as users having access to the benefits of new features and additional functionality as quickly as possible to provide a comprehensive learning experience.
The service updates and releases area will see additional information added soon to include details on what users can expect from the Learning Hub – the roadmap, as well as any known issues affecting the service of the platform for users and what the team is doing to fix the issues.
