Why are networks important?

e-Learning networks are important in the development of e-Learning across the NHS because they:

  • offer peer support
  • provide an opportunity to share effective practice with other providers across the country or region
  • provide an opportunity to cascade research, new developments and practice
  • allow the sharing of the development of resources

Below is an example of an agenda from NHS Yorkshire and the Humber e-Learning club meeting which shows the kinds of topics which members are sharing.
