HowToMoodle have recently assisted a UK based hospice specialising in free end of life care and high-quality nursing who sought a VLE platform to deliver collaborative, blended learning courses. The hospice needed to acquire a suitable, experience VLE expert to help implement and run the e-learning platform successfully and within a strict budget.
Case Study Summary:
- The hospice provides education for its staff, volunteers, health and social care staff and members of the public in the form of study days and short courses, including distance learning courses delivered via post.
- Income is primarily from fundraising and retail activities, with the necessity for significant expenditure focused on patient and community care.
- The hospice had a requirement for the implementation of a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) that can deliver collaborative, blended learning courses for its emotive course topics.
