Online courses can be taken on demand, whenever the learner is ready. Our online learning management system (LMS) saves a learner’s answers as they go, so they don’t have to study the course in one go, they can dip in and out.
Learning material is a mix of written text, pictures and video. Online courses allow more assessment activities than face-to-face or virtual courses, as we can break up the learning material with skills and knowledge questions throughout the course. We also add Virtual Medicines Rounds (VMRs) at the end of many of the topics. VMRs present the learner with a scenario and ask them to identify any errors (for example incorrect medicines, doses, client names, expiry dates, incorrect administration technique with inhalers, incorrect entries in the CD register). These are a great way of testing a learner’s knowledge and skills.
If you are a manager, we can give you access to our LMS so you can see how your learners have got on, even seeing which questions they have got right or wrong. Certificates are available the moment a learner passes their course. They are stored safely on our system from where you can download them whenever you want.
