About HELM Open

Our e-learning resources are designed around the principles of the 'reusable learning object' or RLO. These are web-based resources that consist of a mixture of multimedia elements such as audio, text, images and video and which engage the learner in interactive learning through the use of activities and assessments. They represent approximately 15 minutes of learning activity.

Our working practices are aimed at maximising participation and providing a sense of shared ownership of the materials being produced. The process normally begins with workshops in which the project is scoped and team building occurs. Our workshops involve the widest possible team of stakeholders including tutors, students, health care workers, learning technologists, health service users and carers.

Hello. My name is Tom

As a parent you can easily get lost in the heat of the moment and feel that you are the only ones going through this so it helps to see that you as the Health care team see and understand the things that make a difference in Matt's world and offer this to other carers. I would like to see a link to this site for Teaching Staff at all our Schools so not only the Special needs teachers have access but all staff.
