Soups and inhalers to create ELearning courses!

I got you there didn’t I? What on earth do soups and inhalers have in the creation of ELearning courses? As it turned out it was quite a lot.

In February Manasa from Mediknit and I had a meeting. We decided that we should plan to quickly add two more courses on our ELearning site, so that we had a better offering for all those who subscribed. Which means that those who were already enrolled instantly got access to three courses! And of course new registrants also did.

We fixed the dates for recording the courses, for March 20th to March 22nd. I booked my tickets to be in Bangalore on those dates. I got the presentations ready. But, shortly before these dates, I caught a cold and cough. What started mildly got a little worse each day. And… on the 20th of March, my voice would not emerge! My lovely friends at Mediknit – Manasa, Divya and colleagues decided that the recording would happen – come what may! And made a master plan.

On the 20th, we completed the screen-captures. I was pampered with hot fluids, lozenges and more (in addition to my medication). On the 21st my voice was once again audible. The recordings started on the 21st morning. At the start of each each video, I was first made to drink warm water or some soup. And twice (maybe three times) I had to do steam inhalation too!

Hot soup before a recording!
Steam inhalation – morning, afternoon…. till the airways were unblocked!


At the end of the three days, the PubMed Advanced and the Mendeley – were all done! And that – my friends is the connection between hot soups, steam inhalation and ELearning courses 🙂

We are eager to get the courses up and ready on the site for you to learn more. Don’t forget, that apart from learning, you can interact with us for any difficulties and problem solving needs!

The message in this post is – If I could record sessions with so many constraints, I really mean to do a lot for you.

And if Mediknit could make so many arrangements to ensure that the recording happened, they too will do all they can to help. We want these courses to help you!
