Learners within the NHS are dispelling a myth about e-learning.
Drop-out rates are often cited as one of the reasons for e-learning’s
failure, but the NHS e-Tutor blended training programme, commissioned by the
NHS Information Authority (NHSIA), has achieved a completion rate of 93.8 per
cent and average learner satisfaction ratings of 5.95 out of six.
"Since the project’s inception, 91 learners have completed the
programme and have qualified as e-tutors," said Carol Hulm, ECDL service
manager and NHSIA project manager.
The courses are operated by the Training Foundation under the Institute of
IT Training Certified e-Learning Professional (CeLP) Programme.
