Introducing MOOC School

Go back to school and drive improvements with your own online learning course

Have you thought about the opportunity to engage hundreds or even thousands of people in online improvement learning? Do you want to learn how to run your own massive open online course (MOOC)?

NHS England and NHS Improvement will be running MOOC School – a series of two-and-a-half hour webinars sharing best practice guiding you through how you can go about setting up your own online course.

The webinars will take you through the principles of building a MOOC from concept to completion. For those who want it, the webinars will also demonstrate the QI Learning Platform – a fantastic resource enabling users to engage participants in a lively and interactive way.

The series is entirely free to participate in and will be led by experts in online improvement learning in health and care – the team behind the award-nominated Improvement Fundamentals programme!
