A trio of Learning Technologies Group companies—PeopleFluent, LEO Learning and Gomo—recently united with Resuscitation Council UK to provide critical eLearning resources that will be used in the fight against COVID-19.
In a period where many of us have been left feeling powerless, the 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—the new Learning Experience Platform (LXP) by PeopleFluent launched last year—to long-term LEO Learning client Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK).
RCUK has an important role to play in promoting high-quality, scientifically-informed resuscitation guidelines to other professional organizations and charities. RCUK was approached by a key member of the Resuscitation Department at the new Nightingale Hospital at ExCeL London with a request to provide learning content for the wave of returning clinicians currently being mobilized as part of the UK government’s coronavirus response.
RCUK contacted LEO Learning’s Managing Director, James Greenwood, on Wednesday 25 March with these urgent requirements: With the first of the Nightingale Hospitals due to be opened during 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.
LTG teams were only too happy to jump into action. Staff from PeopleFluent, LEO Learning and Gomo 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:
The five-module ‘adult resuscitation eLearning’ course was adapted from existing RCUK course material and has been 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 PeopleFluent and our sister companies at LTG are proud to be even a small part of the response to the current medical effort. While we sincerely hope that this 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.
