The Academy has been developing IT systems that aim to maximise the effectiveness of the learning process for Academy Fellows and specialist trainees, including an e-portfolio system that collects useful data for detailed analysis in specialist manpower demand and training needs.
In June 2021, the Academy formed a Task Force supported by a project team to kick off the works on the development of a Learning Management System (LMS), an online platform to provide e-Learning resources and virtual learning experience in response to the demand for new forms of education and training.
An online survey and focus group interviews were conducted to collect users' needs for the development of a user-friendly and fit-for-purpose platform for conducting online CME / CPD as well as specialist training activities. The system is targeted to be completed and implemented in the third quarter of 2022. Before the official launch of the LMS, an interim platform has been deployed to deliver online training courses of the Academy and Colleges.
