17 May, 2020

The International Institute of Health Science (IIHS) which trains nurses in Sri Lanka, has used innovative solutions to engage with students during the ongoing global pandemic through the improved Learner Management System (LMS). 

The key features of the LMS platform include providing access to all learner material and student centric teaching thus allowing students to access material and prepare for the online class from the safety and comfort of their home. This new student-centric learning environment is set to international standards to ensure that students maintain autonomy while achieving the desired outcomes. Further, more exams are also held to match International standards and requirements. 

With the use of a simple device and internet connection, students can access online-libraries and research material through LMS which provides access to all undergraduate, postgraduate students, health care professionals and teachers. The system enables IIHS to deliver local and international programs thereby reaching out to the international market.

CEO and co-founder IIHS, Dr. Kithsiri Edirisinghe said, “We are constantly looking at innovative ways to improve efficiency and accessibility for our students. It’s becoming imperative for educational institutes to be able to adapt to global changes with minimal disruption to the study programs. At IIHS this is a key area of focus so that our students will always have access to their study material irrespective of time or place. By using such cost saving digital technologies for the provision of education IIHS will continue its mission of becoming a central regional hub for education.”
