The interoperability link from Health Education England has been vital to our continued development of Technology Enhanced Learning at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals.
We use Moodle as our Learning Management System which hosts all of our e-learning and induction modules and we build the majority of these modules ourselves, with the support of Subject Matter Experts. Safer Use of Insulin was an external package we used, but had its limitations. We weren’t able to host this on our platform and simply provided a link for users to register their details on an external site. We then had to run a special report to capture all completions.
With the help of Health Education England, not only can we use their e-learning content for this course, but we can also track all completions and the user can even download a certificate of completion, all within the Moodle platform.
From an administration perspective, it couldn’t be easier to add this course to our platform as the instructions are simple and anyone familiar with Moodle can utilise this AICC facility.
Over 2,500 members of staff are required to complete this module, and it is also included within the Medical Induction that users complete before they start at the Trust.
