e-Learning simply means learning via the internet!
We know that it is difficult for carers to come to information sessions, courses and training. Even if it’s at a time and place that suits you, the best laid plans can go awry with the many other commitments that our carers have. However, all is not lost! There are many ways of learning via the internet –whether this is doing an online course, or watching a 3 minute video on YouTube. The best thing about it is that you can do it when at home, on your phone while waiting at an appointment or anywhere else with wi-fi!
Take a look at some of the e-learning that we know about – and don’t forget to let us know if there’s something that you would like to share with other carers!
