What are some of the key features of ReachMD?
Our favorite part of education is making it engaging. We designed features that ensure learners stay interested in the content and can easily customize their own experience.
- Playlists offer the unique ability for learners to add specific episodes to their own Playlists that they access anytime, anywhere from our Media Player. Each user’s Media Player contains his or her selected podcasts, whether used online or on mobile. Users also can add other people’s Playlists to their Media Player. For example, if they like a Playlist on women’s health offered by Omnia Education, they can add that to their Media Player. If they create their own Playlist on cardiology, for example, and want to share it with a colleague, they can easily do that. The Media Player allows for “follows me” content -- if you start on the web and pick up later on the mobile app, the Media Player remembers where you left off.
- Peer™ is a social networking feature on ReachMD. Peers are other learners with whom you can connect inside the ReachMD community. Peers have the ability to join Groups to join discussions, pose questions, and learn from each other. We invite everyone to become a Peer of ReachMD and Be part of the knowledge.™
- Customized learning makes education relevant to our learners, and we encourage everyone to customize their experience. Registered users who provide basic information about profession, specialty, and areas of interest will experience a customized homepage, customized landing pages, and customized emails and eNewsletters. It’s the smartest way to experience relevant content on ReachMD.
