Healthcare education solutions company announces updates to mobile learning app for today’s busy healthcare learners
Relias, the trusted education and workforce development partner to more than 11,000 healthcare organizations worldwide, today announced an important update to its new Learner app: course search and self-enrollment. The update allows learners to search for courses directly related to their license or certification as well as enroll in microlearning courses called Pro on the Go.
The Relias Learner app offers enhanced flexibility and better engagement with the Relias Platform by making it easier for users to take training courses at their convenience.
The app syncs directly to the Relias Platform, providing learners with the freedom to choose when and where they complete their training with the ability to seamlessly pick up an assignment they previously began on a desktop or other device. In addition to flexibility, this convenience helps learners avoid missing training deadlines.
The app is an extension of Relias’ commitment to providing innovative technologies that help simplify and streamline healthcare training.
Besides syncing directly to the Relias Platform’s Experience Portal, the app allows users to:
- Start courses assigned to them
- Resume a course already started – even if the course was started on another device
- Experience a variety of course modules (e.g., audio, text, video, PDF, URL, SCORM, authored content)
- Search and browse purchased Relias libraries, including Pro on the Go trainings
- Self-enroll in courses
- Take a course evaluation and exam
- Claim and share their certificates
“Relias Platform users are busy, and that’s putting it lightly,” said Kate Barnhill, VP of Product Marketing at Relias. “Our customers made it clear that they’re hungry for features that give them greater control over when and how they complete courses. So, we set out to meet them where they are and when they need us to give them greater agency over their own education — and that’s what our app does. It makes it easier for today’s busy clinicians to satisfy learning requirements or access our highly rated content on their terms.”
Designers of the app have delivered an experience that looked beyond supporting administrative functionality, shifting the focus to clinicians’ needs. The adaptability of the app provides better engagement for learners, thereby giving business leaders peace of mind knowing that their clinicians can access trainings away from a workstation or on-site learning space.
“The days of being constantly tethered to a computer are behind us,” said Shawn Barber, Chief Product Officer at Relias. “We continue to focus on enhancing the usability of our Platform to make it easier for busy clinicians to fulfill their education requirements in a flexible and engaging way.”
