Brand: Oncovideos
Campaign: Developing Vocational Skills in Oncology
Audience: Oncologists, Surgeons, Radiologists

Due to our heritage in developing high quality video based education programmes and deployment of learning management systems (LMS), coupled with our experience in oncology, Brandcast Health was selected by ECCO to develop Oncovideos, an EU funded project to encourage continued development in oncology specialisation and enable users to collect CME credit points.

Oncovideos – Developing Vocational Skills in Oncology through e-Learning is a cross discipline educational resource for the young cancer specialists in Europe who need practice-oriented training.  Oncovideos is a series of 24 videos demonstrating standard procedures in oncology. Each video features a leading expert from the 18 cancer teaching partner institutions, performing and explaining a particular procedure in the various oncology disciplines, namely surgical oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, paediatric oncology and neuro-oncology.

Each video lasts a maximum of 30 minutes. Both the topics and experts involved were selected by the European societies representing each specific oncology discipline: EANO, ESMO, ESSO, ESTRO and SIOPE.  The videos are accredited by the Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE) to enable users to collect CME credit points.

Brandcast designed and developed the LMS to be integrated within the ECCO website on Moodle, a leading open-source e-learning software platform.

Launched with four videos, the site will be updated on a regular basis so that all 24 videos are made available by end 2011.

Below is an introduction to Moodle LMS.
