LeaderNet is a platform used by a global community of health professionals to work together and to strengthen health systems in low- and middle-income countries. It offers a variety of tools that allows members to learn and communicate and share resources with each other.
LeaderNet was originally launched in 2002. It was re-envisioned and developed by us in 2014/2015 and now has over 9000 members from 172 countries.
The platform offers members a variety of learning experiences such as self-guided courses, interactive seminars and virtual programs. Members collaborate in courses and in teams, sharing documents, a calendar, wikis, and talking to each other in a forums and an activity stream. They are able to see data visualizations of their results. Each member has a personal profile and members can communicate with each other through direct messaging and by writing on each other's wall.
In the background the platform tracks the achievements of each member, team, and course. Results for each team and course are aggregated and data-visualizations are created for use by administrators.
