The Learning Hub will be a powerful new digital platform that will provide easy access to a wide range of education and training resources for the health and care workforce.  It is being developed by Health Education England’s (HEE) national Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Programme.

The Learning Hub will be launched in Beta, early in 2020 with the following functionality:

  • A personalised homepage with a style that will be aligned to other popular platforms, providing a familiar web experience
  • An opportunity for individuals to contribute resources.  Organisations will shortly be invited to contribute content to be available when the Learning Hub launches
  • Forums in which to collaborate and share useful resources.  The forums will encourage discussions to take place around the content, and networks to form around areas of shared interest and act as a Community of Practice.

The Learning Hub is being developed using agile methodology in line with Government Digital Service’s (GDS) principles, which puts user research at the centre of the design and development.  User research to date has been incredibly successful and, as such, the scope of the Learning Hub has been expanded to ensure the development responds to the feedback from users.

Following the launch of the Learning Hub early in 2020, development will continue to provide the platform users have said they want and need.  During this phase of development, other existing systems including HEE’s e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) Hub will remain available in their current location.

New and updated e-learning content is being added to Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) programme on an increasingly regular basis which is seeing more e-learning programmes made available for members of the health and social care workforce.

As the number of programmes grow, so does the number of users.  The quality of the experience the users receive when accessing e-LfH e-learning content is really important to HEE and, therefore, they need to ensure their servers can meet the increasing demand for their programmes.

HEE has therefore planned some system downtime to increase the capacity of their servers.  The downtime is scheduled for Thursday 18 May 2017 between 8am and 12noon.

The e-LfH Hub and the e-LfH website will be unavailable during this time.  NHS Trusts colleagues who access the content on their own systems via an AICC link will also be unable to access e-learning programmes.

If you have any concerns or questions about this short period of downtime please email: [email protected].  Please share this notification with colleagues who may be affected.
