Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) May 13, 2008
LearnSomething's Isoph division announced today that the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R), the national medical society representing more than 7,500 physicians who are specialists in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation, has successfully launched its new AcadeME educational resource portal (http://me.e-aapmr.org/) utilizing the Isoph Blue learning management system.
The portal, which features a wide range of options to support lifelong learning, self assessment, and tools for residents, is fully integrated with AAPM&R's association management system, iMIS from Advanced Solutions International. The integration provides for single sign-on for users of the two systems, a unified e-commerce approach, and sharing of learning data between the Isoph Blue LMS and iMIS.
According to AAPM&R's Director of Education, Stephanie Mercado, the new AcadeME resource is enjoying strong initial success. "In just the first few weeks we have touched 16% of our members with the new offering and 7% have purchased one or more of the 80 newly developed learning activities," said Mercado. "On top of that, 4300 hours of CME credit have been claimed through the site. We are off to a great start."
"AAMP&R offers an excellent case study in how to do e-learning right as a membership organization," said LearnSomething vice president of business development Jeff Cobb. "They were disciplined in their upfront research and planning, selected products and services that really aligned with their educational goals and business strategy, and have done a great job branding and communicating with members about the new offering. We're thrilled that Isoph Blue is serving as the technology backbone for this successful new e-learning program"
