eLearning Modules - MyLearningLink
“MyLearningLink” (mylearninglink.ahs.ca, or “MLL”) is Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) online learning management platform. It is used to facilitate the registration, scheduling, delivery, completion tracking and assessments (End User Proficiency Assessments, or EUPAs) for Connect Care training. Users can find find, access and complete any self-directed e-learning courses found by searching for course titles with "Epic -".
MyLearningLink is optimized for Windows computers on AHS networks. Physicians are strongly encouraged to carefully follow instructions for remote access with personal computers, including essential configuration steps using the Chrome internet browser:
Difficulties have been reported when physicians seek course or proficiency assessment completion credit and MLL fails to record this automatically at the end of an eLearning or assessment. There may be problems at the level of the network, computer or browser. We do not want physicians to be inconvenienced.
If, despite following the tip, a training track user assessment does not get credited or appropriately assessed as “pass”, contact the MyLearningLink Support Centre (HelpMyLearningLink@ahs.ca) immediately with the Subject Line: “EUPA Move to Pass”. In the body of the message, provide your name, email address, course name (EUPA), session number and final grade. For physicians who need additional Connect Care Training support while using personal computers, contact: ConnectCare.PhysicianTraining@ahs.ca
