The innovative use of virtual learning tools to support first year
student midwives is key in current education. Blended learning
considers both face to face student teacher contact as well as
accessing e-learning activities to enhance student learning.
The process of EBL encourages students to gain a deeper
understanding of the theory linked to clinical experiences
along with the use of learning resources within both academic
and clinical environments. By doing so it aims to enhance and
embed knowledge. This article outlines the processes of two
such innovations: a ‘WIKI’ and an interactive filmed scenario
based activity. An evaluation of these learning technologies
to compliment an existing enquiry based learning approach to
midwifery education is provided. Future developments of learning
technologies can only enhance the student experience with the
ultimate aim of ensuring fitness for practice.
