Welcome to the e-Learning Readiness Toolkit

This toolkit was created by Connecting for Health to help your organisation plan e-Learning delivery, with contributions from Skills for Health to help plan e-Learning delivery in relation to the Widening Participation Agenda. More background information is available.

At the heart of the toolkit is a powerful and flexible tool to help you judge how e-Learning ready your organisation is. It can be used in a variety of ways by an individual or by teams. You and your colleagues will be able to use the toolkit to help with your e-strategy.

  • background information and how to use the toolkit
  • information to support implementation of e-Learning in an NHS organisation
  • an e-Learning Readiness Tool based on an e-maturity model
  • a searchable set of resources or links
