Making computers available to everyone

Computers have been made available at the back of the restaurant at the University Hospital of North Tees to help staff have access a computer at work when they normally might not.

The computers, provided by education and organisational development will also mean people can use the e-learning courses and library and information services.

Project facilitator Daniel Evans, from education and organisation development, said: “These computers will allow staff to complete a broad range mandatory and non-mandatory training using e-learning, as well as use information from the library, including e-books and e-journals. This will be of particular use to staff who don’t normally have access to a computer in their workplace.

“We are currently offering more than 10 locally developed e-learning courses, including safeguarding children, fire and information governance as well as many more, including a national diabetes safety suite of e-learning courses.

“There are many benefits of e-learning including the fact that people can learn at their own pace, can use online quizzes and assessments and learn at a time when it suits them.”
