This week Physiopedia launched the new look member area, renamed Physiopedia Plus (PP+). The new features include a dashboard that tracks learning activity, a forum for global discussions and ‘live’ learn topics!
New dashboard that tracks learning activities
We’re very excited to go live with the new dashboard. Displaying your PP+ score, learning progress over time, badges earned and your activity log the new dashboard looks a bit like a fitness tracking site but it’s all about your own personalised learning.
‘Live’ learn topics
As part of the new PP+ we will be running 4 week courses on particular topics, the first starting 5 October is focused on low back pain. Similar to the open online courses that we run in Physiopedia participants will be directed through a set of specific resources, encouraged to take part in the course discussion, listen to experts and join them for Q&A sessions and pass a quiz to receive their certificate of completion. There will also be opportunities to complete a case study to achieve a distinction!
A place for international conversation
Also new to PP+ is the discussion forum that offers a place for connecting with the growing international group of users on the site. Here you can ask questions, post replies, meet and support other physiotherapists and physical therapists around the globe. The PP+ forum uses the latest in communication technology with many similarities to sites such as Facebook and so is designed to be easy and intuitive to use.
