Best teaching platform to use in civil war region

15 September, 2019

Hi everyone,

I am currently supporting a medical teaching programme in an IDP [internally displaced persons] camp, teaching obstetric emergencies. While there is still some unrest in the area, this IDP camp has experienced a fairly stable daily life for the last 7 years. On request a medical teaching/training programme has been provided with local champions slowly taking over. We would like to provide some of the teaching material on-line and would like to seek feedback from the HIFA community about what platforms are recommended that can also be used off-line including creating and using quiz

Thank you for your guidance.
