The shortlisted projects involve the Birmingham Learning Platform (BLP) and the Radiology – Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI), a partnership between the UK’s Royal College of Radiologists and the Department of Health, which paved the way for the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) programme.

The BLP, which involves over 190 Birmingham schools - Infants, Primary, Junior, Secondary, Special and Extended Schools – and is used by teachers, pupils, parents, governors and administrators - facilitates the sharing of information and is creating a Birmingham-wide social learning community. The platform, which uses eXact learning solutions’ HarvestRoad Hive and Hive Explorer (DR), aims to foster collaborative approaches to sharing content, best practice, training and functional improvements.

The second shortlisted programme – R-ITI – is a blended solution, combining traditional teaching models with state-of-the-art e-learning techniques and technology, delivering the entire three-year radiology core curriculum. The R-ITI grew out of the urgent need, identified in 2003, to increase the number of trained radiologists in the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and is now available over the web to all 4,000 UK radiologists.

R-ITI has enabled the NHS to increase training capacity without putting additional strain on resources and it now provides a national library of content where none had previously existed.

On the back of the R-ITI project, e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) was formed in 2007. From Audiology to Anaesthesia, Dentistry to Dermatology, Pathology to Pharmacology, e-LfH - which uses eXact learning solutions’ Learn eXact LCMS to create content - delivers over 30 e-learning projects, with over 10,000 learning objects being available ‘24/7’, in partnership with the UK’s Royal Colleges of Medicine and other professional healthcare organisations.

Currently 750,000 users can access e-LfH content - typically at the rate of over 1,000 hours a day. To date, the user community has performed 425,850 hours of learning in total – the equivalent of over 48 years of online activity – and it has launched 1,123, 986 learning objects.

Fabrizio Cardinali, the Chair of the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG) and CEO of eXact learning solutions, North America, explained: “We’re delighted to be associated again with these awards because improving the quality of, and access to, education is the global challenge that underpins all other global challenges. Harnessing the potential power of new technologies that can enhance the reach and effectiveness of education is a compelling priority for society. “

eXact learning solutions is no stranger to picking up IMS Global Learning Impact Awards. Last year, it received a Learning Impact Leadership Award for ‘Building Europe's largest lifelong learning for employment initiative’. The project – known as the Training Innovation Research and (job) Orientation (TRIO) – uses the the HarvestRoad Hive DR and, to date, over 550,000 courses have been delivered to some 195,000 users since TRIO’s inception in 2002, with some 65,400 people using the system last year.

In 2009, eXact learning solutions – then known as Giunti Labs – received the Gold Learning Impact Award for using the learn eXact LCMS to build a Management Skills Catalogue for Cegos, a global player in the professional education market. Cegos’ catalogue serves some 200,000 learners worldwide and provides over 200 modules in 14 languages, with options for using these in the context of blended learning.
