In a conventional LMS, the administrator controls the content. That could be someone in HR, health and safety, or even a trainer. This individual uploads course material into the LMS and makes it available to learners, usually as part of a mandatory learning plan. The administrators have complete power over the content and more often than not, restrict it to whatever is deemed essential.
In addition to providing best-in-class support and capabilities for mandatory training and compliance tracking, Dual Code's HCE aggregates content from other reputable organizations to supplement the material provided by the administrator. It also allows internal subject-matter experts to add content, which can be in form of blogs, articles, videos, documents, or even links to 3rd party web sites. This allows your learners to not only complete mandatory training, but also find educational material offered by other local, regional, provincial and national healthcare organizations across Canada and the rest of the world.
For example, a nurse may log in to complete their mandatory annual "PHIPA" compliance training offered within your LMS, but through the same course catalogue, discover and enrol in the "LGBT2SQ Foundations Course" offered by a Rainbow Health Ontario that is accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for 3.5 Mainpro-M1 credits.
Considering that more than 80% of learning happens outside of your organization, it’s no real surprise that the HCE provides your organization with a great benefit when compared to a conventional LMS.
Unlike other content aggregators or even LXPs, which tend to grab any resource available on the internet without verifying the source, Dual Code's HCE only provides content from reputable sources such as large research hospitals, accredited academic institutions or other well known healthcare organizations. Courses are often accredited by a College and may count as CME credits.
