Colleagues across health and care have been uploading resources and there are now over 770 resources available to access and share with colleagues. The resources cover a variety of topics including remote teaching, mental health, COVID-19 resources (including self-swabbing) and how technology is being used to support simulation-based education during the pandemic.
The Learning Hub is a digital platform that provides easy access to a wide range of education and training resources for the health and care workforce. Organisations and users can contribute and share resources for those in health and care to access.
Since the launch back in May 2020, as part of the wider support for the health and care workforce responding to the pandemic, the Learning Hub has seen 12 releases which have included new features and functionality being made available to learners including:
Ratings – Users can rate resources they have completed and see the overall ratings in search results.
Video and audio file increases – Users can now upload individual audio and video files up to 2GB in size.
Sensitive content feature – Users can upload content and mark it as sensitive. This means that any images for the content will be hidden from other users until they acknowledge the sensitive content filter.
Search – Sort options have been added to the search results page. Users can sort search results by relevance, alphabetically, by date authored or by rating.
The service updates and releases area on the platform provides information on what’s new, bug fixes that have been completed and background changes that have been made, to keep users up to date with the platform’s development.
A significant release that will allow contributors to have their own branded space on the Learning Hub is in the final stages of testing and will be released very soon.
Hundreds of colleagues working across health and care have contributed resources to the Learning Hub to enable other colleagues to learn from and enhance the learning experience the Learning Hub can provide. The success of the Learning Hub relies on new resources being added and the Learning Hub team is grateful to those who have already contributed content and is keen to encourage more people to share their resources.
