linkedin-and-hied is an online training resource that offers thousands of video tutorials in various areas such as technology, business, software and creative skills. Training modules are available for Microsoft Office (2013, 2016 and Office365), Adobe Creative Cloud, graphic design, e-learning, social media, customer service, project management, and much more.These videos can be used as supplemental material for classes or a learning database for students. In addition, LinkedIn purchased Lynda and is offering learning opportunities to their users through this integration.

Even though our SCSU Library currently does not subscribe to Lynda, these resources can be accessed for free with an active Great River Regional Library card.

Hippocrates is an OER (open educational resource) developed by the University of Bristol to help 3rd year medical students become more familiar with various clinical practices. The modules, which are designed to be used in a blended/flipped approach, include tutorials, case studies, videos, and links to external resources, interspersed with engaging and interactive formative assessments.

Anyway, I thought these e-tutorials might be of interest to our faculty and students, particularly in the School of Health and Human Services. Also, the developers of Hippocrates hope to collaborate with other institutions around the world in creating freely available resources for teaching clinical medicine.
