Start of diabetes term!

The Diabetes Qualifications and Courses website has been taking up a lot of my time this last week. We've been working hard on it to ensure that it is ready for the launch of the new 'term' tomorrow.

There are three simultaneous modules running with over 300 students, and more than 20 tutors showing how quickly the course has grown since its launch in May 2011. The technical team have done wonders with the new Moodle cloud-based platform and the designers have reworked the new logo.

The course is a collaboration between BMJ Learning and University of Leicester and is a very rewarding, social learning environment looking at Masters level study in diabetes for healthcare professionals. Whilst the majority of students are currently doctors last year saw an entire intake of Diabetes Nurse Educators from the Middle East.

Being the digital steward for this course is really enjoyable and we are looking to bring in many new ideas for supporting the programme.
