Allied Health Courses Designed for Success: The ed2go Advantage

ed2go's Allied Health Courses

In the fast-evolving landscape of Allied Health, education is the key to success. At ed2go, we take pride in offering a diverse range of 51 Allied Health courses, each designed with a commitment to excellence and innovation.

With three newly launched Allied Health courses—Patient Care Technician, Mental Health Technician, and Personal Care Aide—we invite you to explore the transformative potential of our courses, built on a foundation of core learning principles.

Core Learning Principles

Our white-label courses are not just educational modules; they are carefully crafted experiences based on four fundamental principles: intentionality, inclusivity, authenticity, and personalization. These principles form the essence of our approach, shaping an educational environment that is engaging, accessible, and uniquely tailored to individual learners.

Competency-Based Design

At ed2go, we believe in the power of expertise. Our subject matter experts (SMEs) play a pivotal role in crafting content that uses a competency-based design with a mix of assignments and assessments with remediation. All our content is meticulously mapped to certification requirements, ensuring that learners are equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in their chosen field.

A Team-Focused Approach to Excellence

Our commitment to excellence is reinforced by our four-pillar, cross-functional team approach, where each team member —product manager, learning designer, multi-media designer, and subject matter expert—plays a crucial role in creating original, effective content for adult learners. Our product managers, in particular, bring years of experience developing non-credit and for-credit Allied Health learning programs.

Learning Objective-Based Design with Hands-On Instruction

Our courses are not just a series of lessons; they are a journey towards real-world success. Utilizing a learning objective-based design, we blend a mix of assignments and assessments to create a holistic learning experience. Hands-on learning is seamlessly integrated into lessons, boosting learner engagement, and providing valuable real-world experience.

Inclusivity and Accessibility at the Core

Accessibility is a central component of ed2go’s educational philosophy. The Universal Design principles that guide our course development ensure that our content meets the needs of learners from all backgrounds. We know that accessibility means enabling all learners to use a product meaningfully. We invest significantly in accessibility compliance across our platforms and content experiences, making education accessible to all. 

As accessibility standards evolve with technology, we understand that compliance is a journey rather than a destination. Courses that meet today’s standards may fall short in the future; likewise, some older courses may have accessibility gaps until they are revised. As such, you can control your catalog offerings based on accessibility status or any other criteria using our catalog management tool (Online Administration Center). 

If you have questions about the Online Administration Center or the accessibility status of a course, please contact your account manager.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commitment

Our investment in accessibility goes beyond compliance—inclusivity is one of ed2go’s core learning design principles. In line with our commitment to inclusivity, we invest in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), frameworks, standards, and regular audits/reviews. We’re dedicated to creating an educational environment that respects and values diversity and ensures that every learner feels seen, heard, and empowered.  

Here’s a look at how we’re working to make ed2go learning experiences accessible and inclusive: 

  • Designing with inclusivity in mind: When developing new products, our teams always consider the diverse learners that we serve
  • Meeting internationally recognized standards for accessibility: We’re taking active steps to adhere our products to WCAG 2.1 AA/Section 508 
  • Going beyond accessibility audits and VPATs: We engage knowledgeable staff to continually review and evaluate the accessibility of our products 

The ed2go Advantage in Allied Health

At ed2go, our commitment to clarity, consistency, and real-world applicability paves the way for learners to navigate their educational journey with purpose, understanding exactly what they are learning at every step. Our courses not only impart knowledge but also cultivate a rich blend of hard and soft-skills. Through engaging real-world case scenarios and thought-provoking challenges, we prepare learners to not just understand the concepts but to think and act like seasoned professionals in their field. 

Learners remain deeply engaged through universally accessible and proprietary videos, just-in-time feedback interactivities, and a hands-on approach that encompasses learning by doing. Our virtual and practical lab kits and simulations provide an immersive experience that bridges the gap between theory and practice, ensuring that learners are well-prepared for the demands of their future careers.
