What You Should Be Aware About E-Learning Or Health And Social Care

E-Learning for Health and Social Care is a small but important part of the Learning and Development journey for many care staff. Organisations are increasingly using e-Learning as part of their Learning and Development to help increase engagement whilst adopting and utilising digital forms of learning. Whilst staff within the Health and Social Care sector are busy with their day-to-day roles, e-Learning offers a different approach to Learning and Development. This is because e-Learning can be completed in smaller bite-sized parts which allow learners to complete their learning quickly and access resources more conveniently.

It’s also worth noting that e-Learning can often be completed online, and on any device, which makes e-Learning highly effective when it comes to accessibility as it can be completed 24/7, around organisational and learner needs. These factors are great points to consider when reviewing your Learning and Development strategy, it can provide valuable insight to how e-Learning can deliver an excellent and positive impact on your organisations return on investment.

How can my Organisation Manage e-Learning?

As e-Learning is becoming a more accessible resource within Learning and Development, it’s vital that Health and Social Care Organisations are able to manage and track e-Learning. This is particularly important for larger organisations which may have several branches or large staff numbers. The ideal solution to this is utilising a Learning Management System known as an LMS. This will help build up and maintain a compliance record for both the organisation and each learner, which removed the need   of excess paperwork and complicated excel spreadsheets.
