Blended learning for Community Health Workers and Health Professionals in Afghanistan
Funded by Grand Challenges Canada, Tech4Life in partnership with some Canadian academics through the University of Calgary have been developing blended learning materials for front-line mental health workers in Afghanistan. They use the open-source learning platform Moodle and have also employed some innovative strategies such as providing memory cards with the course materials to the learners. They have recently reported positive outcomes from the evaluation of their modules on Depression - and more detail should soon be forthcoming in the peer-reviewed literature.
