Dear Learnly Sites,
As together we navigate the changes brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic we recognize that many of the strategies in place to fight the spread of the epidemic can also pose challenges to the continuation of medical training of our residents and physicians.
SUPPORT FOR REMOTE LEARNING
As more learning is transferred to virtual spaces to promote social distancing, our team at Learnly is here to support you and your anesthesia program to adapt to the COVID-19 and ensure there is no disruption in the access and delivery of high quality anesthesia education to your residents.
SUPPORT AT THE POINT OF CARE: A MOBILE APP
At Learnly we have taken initiatives to support you during this time including preparing a guide on how to best use Learnly for COVID-19, hosting a conversation with Italian anesthesiologists on the front line of the epidemic to help us prepare for the learning challenges ahead and creating a dedicated app with anesthesia resources for COVID-19 (access link by mobile device only).
PERSONAL SUPPORT FOR FACULTY AND STUDENTS
Our team is available to answer any questions you might have at learnly.zendesk.com or by email at [email protected]. We can help answer questions about how to convert in-person seminars into virtual lessons using our Learnly Showcase lectures and other program resources. Should you require immediate assistance we are also available by phone at (650) 497 1784.
