Breast Cancer Care provides free support and information for people facing breast cancer. They have offices in Scotland, England and Wales.

The charity launched their B-Aware campaign in March 2014, which aims at promoting early detection of breast cancer and improving survival rates in Scotland through the creation of a team of trained volunteers who will reach out to local communities.

Breast Cancer Care worked with Webanywhere to create an online 2-hour pilot course to be given to 50 volunteers and health professionals. Webanywhere developed a Moodle platform and a course using SCORM content, including quizzes and custom certificates. The training portal, which hosts the B-Aware online course, also has information about face-to-face training and FAQs.

Key benefits of the solution

  • A scaleable, open-source platform.
  • Increased promotion of breast health awareness.
  • Raised the profile of the charity.
  • Started developing a comprehensive e-learning programme.
  • Provision of an e-learning platform used across the organisation for a variety of training needs.
  • Confirmed user interest in e-learning

We are really excited to have developed such an innovative e-learning project with Webanywhere and have had a really positive response since it launched. The B-aware online course will help us train even more healthcare professionals to work with local communities where early detection of breast cancer is low
