In the last two years, our ELearning courses have elicited great feedback. Occasionally our participants have given suggestions for enhancing one or more aspects and we have made quite a few changes based on these. In fact, we have given “badges of appreciation” to those whose ideas we used.
We also had been noting down our own ideas on how we could enhance the courses. One important idea was to add lots more questions to the Final Assessment Quiz of each course. By doing this, we could allow participants to attempt an assessment as many times as they wished to. As they attempted again the probability of getting new questions to answer would be high. By answering different questions, their learning would better and better.
We are happy to share that we have finally compiled all these and are all set to incorporate them in the site in the coming few days. We are waiting to get feedback about them from participants. The good part is that for those participants who want certificates with high scores, they can keep trying until they get the best scores. Moreover, for us, what is great is now – we can plan to add more and more questions with time, to enhance the learning experience further.
We recently had two webinars that got us great feedback. The first was one where I spoke to Palliative Care practitioners. They were delighted to learn about the Mendeley software for managing references. One of them said “This is the first time I learnt how exactly I should use this tool”. The other was a webinar, which we ourselves conducted for our ELearning participants. We had five people who attended and all of them fervently thanked us for all that we did for them.
An update about our fundraising for a laptop for our Technology Head Ms Fatima. Last time we mentioned that one donor gave Rs 15000/-. On seeing that update two more friends contributed Rs 15,000/- and Rs 5000/ -each. We thank them all.
