Huge increase in use of e-Learning for Healthcare Hub

13 January 2021

The number of session launches in one day on the Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare Hub (HEE e-LfH) has reached its highest figure ever.

Last week the HEE e-LfH Hub saw a record 211,452 session launches in a single day, with health and care professionals accessing a variety of e-learning sessions from the free 350+ e-learning programmes available. A year ago on the same day, 7 January 2020,  there were 23,806 sessions launched on the e-LfH Hub which means there is a 788% increase on year-on-year usage.  During 2020, e-LfH saw more than 22 million session launches on the Hub throughout the year. 

The health and care workforce is continuing to use the e-LfH Coronavirus e-learning resources to support their response to the pandemic and the e-LfH COVID-19 vaccination e-learning programme is an essential part of the vaccination recruitment and training process. Health and care colleagues are using the resource to develop the knowledge needed to confidently promote high uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine and deliver the vaccination programme effectively, which is resulting in the e-LfH Hub seeing a further surge in usage on the platform.  To date there have been more than 770,000 session launches of the e-LfH COVID-19 vaccination e-learning programme alone.

Dr Neil Ralph, Head of Technology Enhanced Learning at Health Education England, said: “The 788% increase in usage on 7 January 2021 compared to 7 January 2020 shows what an important service HEE’s e-Learning for Healthcare provides to the NHS and wider health and care workforce in providing national quality assured education and training resources.  e-LfH learning resources are being accessed by all professional groups working in health and care and the growth in numbers can be seen across all e-learning programmes confirming the need for consistent, high quality online learning has never been greater.”
