eCPD Healthcare (healthcare-ecpd.co.za) offers CPD courses accredited by the HPCSAHPCNA, and AHPCSA.

World Hypertension Day (WHD), observed on 17 May each year, and was initiated by The World Hypertension League (WHL), which is itself an umbrella organization to 85 national hypertension societies and leagues.

The WHL launched its first WHD in May 2005 and since then the WHL has been dedicating May 17 yearly as WHD. Read more.

How can you bulk add users to my Moodle?

As a Moodle Partner we love providing useful resources. This video shows you how you can add users to your Moodle site by bulk uploading their details. It also explains how to enrol them into courses at the same time as you add them to your Moodle site. View: https://bit.ly/3tYpD8A

This month’s tested Moodle plugin and Moodle best practice is:

  • Tested Moodle plugin – User Suspension

This plugin allows you to disable users automatically, based on pre-set rules, so that they cannot log in to your Moodle site. As a Certified Moodle Partner of South Africa we can assist with its installation.

  • Moodle best practice – Managing your managers and teachers

Manage your managers and teachers by setting up an internal team, with not too many users per role, and divide tasks amongst them so that people don’t accidentally delete or edit something someone else was working on. As a Certified Moodle Partner of South Africa we can assist with guiding you.
