  20. 20. e-Learning at UCLH - a case study Rob Beer, eLearning Designer, UCLH
  21. 21. Issues with the existing system The system was only accessible on site - Many access PCs were on busy wards - Difficult to work without interruption Limited course design options - required separate system for ICT training
  22. 22. Unreliabilty - System occasionally “lost” results - Staff had to retake assessments - Confidence in the system undermined
  23. 23. Hard to navigate - All courses displayed to all staff - Local training displayed alongside national - Difficult to locate relevant info amongst the “noise”
  24. 24. Why Totara? Negative experience of proprietary solutions prompted UCLH to look at an open source solution Totara was chosen for this project over Moodle due to the ability to set hierarchies and advanced reporting features UCLH approached a number of Totara partners, and opted to work with Webanywhere, looking for a collaborative, rather than sales-driven approach
  25. 25. Goals for the new system To improve training/compliance figures - Ensures staff are operating safely and competently To achieve this earlier in the induction process - Give access in advance of induction To give staff flexibility and ownership of their learning To streamline staff journey (one stop, shop)
  26. 26. Our approach - Initial consultation phase - Proof of concept to assist UCLH in securing funding - Main project phase - Planning future projects
  27. 27. Planning the new system - An easy-to-use system requiring little training - Personalised view for each learner - Test environment for problem solving - Accessible from any location - Usable across a range of devices
  28. 28. Timescales November 2012 December 2012 January 2013 February - April 2013 June 2013 July 15 2013 Initial enquiry Consultancy and requirements capture Proof of concept operational LMS development Testing and bugfixing Launch day
  29. 29. Benefits of the new system Brought together disparate processes so that our staff have one route to all training Staff can start training in advance of their induction - allows quicker time to compliance (100% within first week) Accessible anytime, anywhere, encouraging staff engagement Open source software gives UCLH control of the future of the platform, lots of opportunity for further development - Free content such as 3m courses Lots of interest in expanding the system to other areas of healthcare UCLH awarded a prize for most improved compliance figures
  30. 30. Why I like it is an eLearning Designer Compared to old system it gives me opportunity and flexibility when designing solutions - SCORM packages - Podcasts/Screencasts - Videos - Surveys - Virtual classrooms - Forums
