E-learning engages, enriches

A few years ago, Children’s Health Education Center launched an e-learning program.  E-learning health education programs may have seemed pretty far “outside of the box” for some, and CHEC was a bit ahead of the curve. With a great amount of passion, persistence and creativity by CHEC’s e-learning team, I am thrilled to announce that CHEC BlueKids e-learning programs have reached nearly 13,000 students in the 2008-2009 school-year – that’s triple what we reached the year before. The game-based e-learning programs are engaging and effective at getting kids talking about health. Most important is that kids love them!
