MyLearningLink for the Rest of Us

“MyLearningLink” (mylearninglink.ahs.ca, or “MLL”) is Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) online learning management platform. It is used to deliver courses offered to all AHS stakeholders in all areas. It is also used to facilitate the registration, scheduling, delivery, completion tracking and assessments for Connect Care training. Users can find, access and complete any self-directed e-learning courses or assessments that can be completed online. MyLearningLink is important to Connect Care.

Unfortunately, until recently, the MLL environment focused on continuing education needs of AHS staff working in AHS facilities on AHS-provisioned systems. Courses are approved for Internet Explorer (IE, version 11) running under Windows 7 on AHS desktop computers. But Connect Care users need to train at non-AHS locations on non-AHS computers.

Fortunately, MLL has recently been upgraded to work on networks both inside and outside of the AHS “intranet”. Testing and support for users of Apple operating systems is coming. For now, physician informaticians need to be ready to help clinician-colleagues who are not primarily Windows users.

We  have prepared a tip giving interim advice for clinicians who may have difficulty replicating the standard AHS computer set-up. Please try this out and send any feedback or additional suggestions to mip@ahs.ca. We particularly need physician testers who use Macintosh computers. When in MLL, search for courses with "Epic" in the name and try any example that appears.
