VIVEL Academy offers qualitative blended training to health professionals in primacy care
VIVEL, the Flemish Institute for Primary Care, is recognized and funded by the Flemish government as a partner organization for the primary care in Flanders. VIVEL is the central point of contact and the platform for communication between Flemish primary care professionals with the government and with each other.
One of VIVEL’s requirements was to have the ability to provide some content for users, without forcing them to create an account. To comply with this request, the guest access functionality of Totara was used. Guests needed to have access to a limited number of open courses. The goal was to set up a learning solution in just one month.
In collaboration with Uncapped, The Learning Hub set up Totara as their learning management system. VIVEL, of course, had a significant role during the implementation.
The project started with a kick-off workshop to map out the most important needs and translate them into functionalities in Totara. Afterwards, the planning of the project was fine tuned, and the configuration of the platform started.
During each sprint, a deep dive moment was scheduled with the VIVEL project team. This gave VIVEL the opportunity to provide intermediate feedback and The Learning Hub the ability to switch quickly if necessary.
Thanks to the Microsoft Teams plugin available in Totara Engage, The Learning Hub made an integration between Microsoft Teams and Totara. As a consequence, all the users of the team environment have immediate access to the LMS within Microsoft Teams. As a result, users can “learn in the flow of work.” That meets one of the requirements of VIVEL.
The new platform, named VIVEL Academie, aims to offer qualitative training (e-learning, webinars…) and activities (intervisions, events…) organized by VIVEL and/or organizations who collaborate with VIVEL. VIVEL manages the LMS on their own and continuously expands the content on the platform. Should VIVEL have any questions or problems in the future, The Learning Hub is ready to assist.
“Thanks to our Totara learning environment we are able to give well-structured courses to our stakeholders.” – Nik Silverans, Staff Member, Vivel
