About PRESENT eLearning Systems
PRESENT e-Learning Systems leads the field of online professional education using multimedia accredited lectures combined with social networking features, to simulate both the formal and informal education that clinicians experience at a live clinical conference. PRESENT e-Learning Systems approach is unique in that it creates communities of learning for medical professionals, where the participants collaborate with each other online and at its live conferences, to advance the science of medicine and way they treat their patients. Research into the way professionals learn has shown that clinicians learn best and are more apt to employ what they learn in the care of their patients, when they collaborate with one another, and have the support of their peers and trusted leaders, in changing their treatment and prescribing habits. PRESENT supports that trend by providing many opportunities for its members to talk to one another about the educational content that they deliver for them, using their revolutionary Mentor learning management system. Mentor employs online multimedia streaming education presentations, pre and post testing to calculate education outcomes scores, eZine publishing, its proprietary eTalk blog and Colleague Matching system. This is social networking for clinicians that has been proven to be the most effective means to advance clinicians practice patterns. It is, in fact, what clinicians have always done to keep up in their field, but it had traditionally taken place LIVE in the hospital hallways and the lobby outside the lecture hall at live clinical conferences. This was old school medical networking. PRESENT NOW gives clinicians access to their peer network from their computer or their mobile devices wherever they are.
