In a period of global disruption, teams at Learning Technologies Group (LTG) have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to assist with the UK’s coronavirus response in a small but meaningful way. LTG has provided a program of support including a free six-month, 100,000+ user license for Instilled by PeopleFluent—the new Learning Experience Platform (LXP) launched last year—to long-term LEO Learning client Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK).
In March 2020, RCUK was approached by a key member of the Resuscitation Department at the Nightingale Hospital at ExCeL London with a request to provide learning content for the wave of returning clinicians that were mobilized as part of the UK government’s coronavirus response. With LEO Learning supporting RCUK across multiple learning initiatives since November 2010, the organization contacted LEO on Wednesday 25 March with these urgent requirements.
With the first of the Nightingale Hospitals due to be opened the following week, RCUK needed to be able to launch eLearning content that was fully fit for purpose by the morning of Monday 30 March. Staff from RCUK, LEO Learning, Gomo and Instilled all came together over the weekend and across global time zones in order to make this a reality.
Instilled was quickly identified by the LTG team as a key component in addressing some specific challenges RCUK was facing, including:
Ease of use for all users, including returning healthcare workers who aren’t familiar with modern digital learning platforms.
Support for self-service login.
Overall flexibility to allow a wide range of media types.
Dynamic scalability to grow in line with the demand for more returning clinicians.
The five-module ‘adult resuscitation eLearning’ course was adapted from existing RCUK course material and adjusted specifically for an audience of former professional clinicians returning to deal with patients affected by COVID-19. Built utilizing the cloud-based eLearning authoring tool Gomo, all content is mobile-responsive and allows downloads of key charts—including a specific algorithm for COVID-19 life support application—ensuring that key information can be referenced in the field.
“Everyone at LEO Learning and our sister companies at LTG is proud to be even a small part of the response to the current medical effort,” said LEO’s Managing Director, James Greenwood. “While we sincerely hope that this life-saving training will be required as rarely as can be wished for, we’re grateful for the opportunity to provide it in a way that will help those saving lives get back to work with a minimum of fuss.”
“We are incredibly grateful to the team at LEO who assisted Resuscitation Council UK to set up a Learning Experience Platform (LXP) to host and deliver a bespoke course, ‘Adult resuscitation e-learning’, for the NHS in under 72 hours,” said Dr James Cant, CEO of Resuscitation Council UK. “This crucial piece of work will provide training for the vital healthcare professionals who are facing COVID-19 on the frontline and will benefit the patients who are under their care. In uncertain and trying times such as these, work like this will help make a difference.”
