Welcome to the Collegeâ€™s ENLIGHTENme Hub & Knowledge Bank – a dedicated virtual learning environment (VLE) ofÂ Emergency Medicine resources to provide education, decision support and opportunities for academic networking. The site is ownedÂ by the College of Emergency Medicine though we are now beginning to develop relationships with international partners. We very much hope you will enjoy theÂ Hub as it evolves and that you will contribute with your ideas for its improvement.
Some parts of the site have now been live for overÂ two years and other parts are still undergoingÂ â€˜beta testingâ€™.Â We want to continue toÂ develop a VLE that will meet the needs of all doctors involved in emergency care both within UK & Ireland as well as creating the opportunity to collaborate internationally with other partners.
Beta testingÂ allows us to evaluate the VLE for faults in the system, refine our approach,Â seek further feedback and then optimise the function as a result. We appreciate all feedback that we receive to help refine the vision of what we think the Hub & Knowledge Bank should deliver.
MyÂ thanks to all those who have contributed so far. Special mention must go to those involved inÂ the Hub’sÂ initial build / development, to the Section Editors of the ENLIGHTENme – eLfH programme as it was and the present Editorial Executive as well as the CREC Chairs nationally for their commitment and hard work. Many more of you as Fellows and Members will have an opportunity toÂ contribute inÂ the coming year with your enthusiasm, expertise and innovative ideas for education in a virtual learning environment – weÂ warmly welcomeÂ you to do so.
