HEE Learning Solution – Alpha phase complete and service assessment passed

Health Education England’s (HEE) Learning Solution project has reached a new milestone by completing the alpha phase of the development. This phase culminated in passing all aspects of the service assessment giving permission for it to move onto the next part of the process, which is the beta development phase.

Many people have been asking us what the differences will be between the elearning for healthcare (elfh) Hub and the Learning Solution and how this will affect their learning.

HEE’s Learning Solution will provide access to a full range of resources, guidance and educational innovations across the NHS, social care and higher education which can also be shared, signposted, evaluated and developed. Examples could include sharing simulation equipment and scripts, podcasts, elearning resources or informal materials such as a YouTube video. As well as helping to drive up quality, the Learning Solution will help promote and harness innovation and draw on the best practice, talent and projects within and beyond the NHS.

Research has confirmed that there are opportunities to use technology to enhance the provision of education through the implementation of a learning solution, which allows users to:

  • Upload and share learning resources they have developed
  • Easily access learning resources available via the learning solution
  • Rate, review and discuss learning resources
  • Collaborate within communities of practice


An overview of what the differences are between the elfh Hub and the Learning Solution is below:

elfh Hub HEE Learning Solution
Mainly delivers elearning Will provide access (directly or via signposting) to all types of learning resources
Has a Learning Management System (LMS) which records learner activity Will not be a LMS, however we are exploring the option of a Learner Record Store (LRS)
Delivers nationally quality-assured elearning Will offer national/regional content but will also enable users to upload content they have developed
Includes functionality to rate content (and feedback to elfh team) Will include functionality to rate, review, discuss and collaborate


The intention is to provide integration between the elfh Hub and the HEE Learning Solution. We will be involving a sample of elfh users in user needs research to inform the requirements for the level of integration between the two systems.


The report from the 18 point Digital Service Standard assessment, which provides feedback and recommendations for the beta phase, can be found on the Digital Health blog.
