Abstract

This case study arose out of a Leonardo da Vinci Partnership Project (2010-12) as part of the EU Lifelong Learning Programme. Four educational providers in Turkey and UK trialled an open access learning module on the iVersity cloud-based virtual learning platform aimed at developing managerial competences in managing change in healthcare facilities and/or programmes in different countries. 25 managers from Africa, Asia, Australasia and Europe participated in the small trial conducted in early 2012. The trial showed, with minimal investment apart from time, that management learners could take a more proactive role in managing their own learning and negative perceptions about the feasibility and value of e-learning could be changed very quickly. The trial demonstrated that it is feasible to deliver managerial e-learning across international borders without new investment in technology, promote resource exchange between managers, empower learners to drive their own learning, and enhance e-learning skills. The learning environment was evidently enriched and enhanced with the more intelligent application of e-learning technology.
