ATTC Messenger June 2021: HealtheKnowledge Learning Platform has New Look, Robust Course Offerings

HealtheKnowledge Learning Platform has New Look, Robust Course Offerings

In the modern world, business is done online. From buying groceries and booking vacations to searching out do-it-yourself maintenance tips, the digital world is often intertwined with each aspect of daily life. Education is no exception, evolving rapidly with everyone from elementary school students to seasoned professionals utilizing the tools available at the touch of a button to learn new skills and refine their practices. In the realm of behavioral health and substance use disorders (SUD), studies have shown that teaching basic knowledge of SUD through e-learning results in higher test scores for all the educational objectives regardless of the learner’s previous subject familiarity, and that digital tools can serve as important supplementary companions to formal education in addiction studies. Likewise, there is evidence that online learning effectively reduces knowledge gaps and stigma for patients and providers when it comes to subjects such as hepatitis C.

With online learning showing no signs of slowing down, the e-learning platform HealtheKnowledge recently debuted an update that prioritizes user-friendliness and easy navigation. The update signifies a new step in the platform’s successful history of administering continuing education courses and learning opportunities for organizations in the health care space while maintaining an active user base of approximately 35,000 individuals in any given six-month period.

The learning platform’s new design features an updated theme that renews its aesthetic appeal and adds descriptive pictures to each of the nearly 150 courses offered on HealtheKnowledge, while the updated interface puts users in the driver’s seat of a simple-to-navigate experience from start to finish. Beginning with a new user sign-up display that is easier to find and complete than ever before, users can then choose their desired courses from a categorized list that expands to show overviews of individual courses, or search for specific course titles and on View Resource to read the full article.
