Technological innovations have been shown to improve the quality of health information and improve safety in health care systems. The purpose of this project was to offer a more flexible and practical alternative to education and training than the traditional face-to-face method, supporting healthcare educators in overcoming many of the obstacles in responding to nursesÔ?? needs in the clinical areas. A randomized, 2-group control experimental design was adopted. A total of 130 randomly chosen participants were equally distributed to experimental group (received a new instructional approach using an electronic learning management system (ELMS)) and the control group used the siteÔ??s traditional standard method. Data analysis showed a significant difference between the 2 groupsÔ?? posttest scores (p<.00), indicating that the participants who used the innovative ELMS method attained a higher median knowledge than the participants who received traditional, face-to-face instruction. These results suggested that this innovative ELMS-based learning is an effective method of instructional delivery that could effectively replace many of the traditional face-to-face education programs and support clinical educators to improve healthcare education at the clinical areas.
