Tier 2, or the Knowledge Hub, acts as an encyclopaedia of resources that can be accessed either via a link embedded in tier 1 or independently.
There are different types of resources within the Knowledge Hub, including resources around conditions, genes, inheritance patterns, genomic technologies, communication resources, and the GMSA/GLH structure. These resources have a flexible structure that can feature a range of different media including text, images, narrated slide decks, infographics, filmed interviews and animations.
For those who have previously undertaken a MOOC (massive open online course) on FutureLearn, the Knowledge Hub can be seen as a ‘muddled-up MOOC’, where the individual learner can chart a bespoke learning journey reflecting their educational requirements and interests.
GeNotes is also designed to link to external resources. It will signpost to management guidelines (including NICE), external educational resources and curricula, as well as resources for clinicians to share with their patients.
