C2Hear Award

We are very proud to be part of the C2Hear team, who have won the Research Impact of the Year Award at the NUH Honours award evening.

C2Hear is a series of short, interactive videos, designed and developed with patients, that demonstrate how to use hearing aids and to overcome challenges faced when communicating with other people. More information about C2Hear and the NUH awards.


Throughout December we have been tweeting a selection of School of Health Sciences HELM Open e-learning resources and RLOs. Follow our tweets here

RLO Updates 

We have been working with a variety of academics and research partners on RLO resources.

New RLOs available on HelmOpen

Re-released HTML5 RLOs now available

Storyboarding new RLOs

In November we ran a workshop for people with diabetes and healthcare professionals, and will be developing three RLOs to help people of different cultures manage their diabetes.

Also, we ran two further workshops for forthcoming RLOs in Mental Health as well as a Resilience and Trust focus group with nursing students from our school and the University of Sheffield.

In development

We are producing a 'Sepsis Care Bundle' RLO against the new NICE guidelines and hope to trial with NUH very soon. 

Interested in our RLO development methods?

Register for our Designing E-Learning for Health free online course which starts on 13 February 2017. 

Curriculum and Faculty 

About twice a year, we run a Faculty E-Learning Special Interest Group (FELSIG) with Medicine. Our Autumn FELSIG was well attended with interesting presentations from academic and e-learning colleagues. See our Storify for a snapshot of the session. 

We also had a few Virtual Reality headsets to have a go with at the end of the session.  

Curriculum work is ongoing with the team working on Moodle modules and content for the New Year. MacJay is piloting a Turnitin rubric implementation for structured marking with our Director of Assessments Sarah Westwater-Wood and academics on the pilot. 

Sheila is working with PebblePad to put the processes in place for our students to have alumni access to their e-portfolios, an important development for their ongoing Career and Professional development (CPD). 

Kamila is working with academics in our CPD division on the following online courses: 

  • Principles of Palliative care
  • Acute Wound Management
  • Chronic wound management
  • Pain management
  • Diabetes

Dimeane project 

Three new e-learning resources have been developed as a result of a collaborative EU project between HELM and the University of Stavanger to develop Open Educational Resources. For more information see the DICE website

Mike, Heather and Richard attended a Dimeane project meeting in Berlin combined with Online Educa Berlin conference, where the Dimeane resources where launched.
