    Hello

    I am writing from the Nova Scotia Regulated Health Professions Network. The Network consists of the 22 regulated health professions, and we collaborate to enhance professional regulation in the province. We are planning to implement training modules for regulatory bodies’ volunteers, and are exploring options for e-learning platforms or learning management systems (LMS).

    Ideally, the platform will enable mixed media (text, videos), be interactive, appeal to various learning styles, and support the verification of learning (quizzes).

    Is there a learning platform that you use, and would recommend?

    With appreciation,
    Jennifer Hemeon

    Hello Jennifer,
    While not related to my current position with COPR, I previously sat on the Education Committee for the Vocational Rehabilitation Association of Canada. VRA Canada partners with Velsoft and uses their LMS for an online learning academy (professional development). The LMS includes the ability to incorporate text, videos and quizzes. Velsoft is based in Nova Scotia. https://velsoft.com/

    Hello,

    The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario used Dual Code to design, produce, and host our Jurisprudence course. We are happy with their service.

    Sincerely,

    Hi Jennifer

    I have a platform I am working with now that is very cost-effective and user-friendly. The application is called Kajabi, and I would be happy to discuss it with you if it would be of help.

    Thanks
    Dean

    Hello,

    At the Ontario College of Pharmacists we use Docebo for our registration programs. We are happy with them. I’d be willing to discuss if you were interested.

    Hi Jennifer,

    At the Real Estate Council of Ontario, we migrated to a new platform to better meet the needs for our learners. We were using an open-source platform (Moodle) and migrated to a SAAS platform (Thinking Cap LMS). A key consideration is the use of the LMS beyond hosting content. Are you planning on using the LMS to also author courses? We use 3rd party authoring tools (Articulate, Lectoria, Captivate) so we did not focus on the authoring portion of any of the organizations who submitted a proposal. I’ve also been involved in 3 LMS implementations and also have had a solid experience with Sencia Canada (who owns the Informetica LMS). Both Thinking Cap and Informetica are Canadian owned companies as well. Hoping this helps…….Paul Lush

    The College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan is looking into learning platforms as well so this is timely. Thank-you so much!!! Looking forward to all responses.

    Hello Jennifer,

    At The National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA), we currently use Moodle (open-source learning platform) to offer learning modules using mixed media, but I could not speak to how useful Moodle would be to track learning outcomes, as we have not used it for that purpose. When it comes to authoring of the content on Moodle, we use a 3rd party tool called Articulate.

    We have also used Questionmark, which is an online assessment platform that offers an extensive array of reports and tools to facilitate the administration of quizzes and their management. They also allow the use of mixed media.

    I hope that helps.
