Introducing IOB Learn:
New UX Updates to IOB Learn (October 2022):
Here's a quick guide on how to use IOB Learn.
You can access all the content as on the desktop. More details on the use of the app are available in the IOB Learn user guide.
Yes, you use your membership number or email (that we have on our records for you) and password as you would when logging through a desktop browser.
It will not waste more battery than if you were logging in and using the platform through a browser. Some content such as a video, on the browser and the app, may use up more battery life than general browsing.
Selecting learning goals/areas of interest and skills allows for a more personalised experience on the platform. Once you’ve indicated your preferences to us, we can serve you content based on your interests. You are required to select at least one learning goal/area of interest before proceeding and skills can be skipped.
The app is tracking user data to gather general information about the services you are using. We will use this data to help improve the platform experience.
No, you will not. You will only be asked the first time you log in.
On the IOB Learn homepage, within the CPD tab, click the “Access CPD” card. This card will redirect you to the overview CPD page. Click on a designation to view and record CPD hours, complete eCPD modules, access CPD downloads and certificates, and submit accreditation requests. See the IOB Learn User Guide for more details.
Module material will be available from the start of term date. To access material, click on the Modules tab on the IOB Learn home page. Here you will see all modules you are enrolled to. Click on the module you want to access to be redirected to the module material. See IOB Learn User Guide for more details.
Not all content on IOB Learn is accredited for CPD hours. Our micro content will give you a short piece of learning on a specific topic by an expert in the field. These micro learnings are short videos, podcast and articles ranging from 5 minutes to 60 minutes. Some of the content is created by our own lecturers and some if it is sourced from other education organisations. The nature of this type of learning does not meet the formal criteria for CPD hours accreditation, for example, some of it is too short (less than 30 minutes) and there are no assessments required for completion.
As usual all eCPD modules will be accredited and relevant to the designation that you are viewing. For events, you need to view the information that will inform you if the event/content is accredited for CPD hours and for which designations.
