Increase your basic understanding of cancer and how it can affect people's lives.
Resource Cards are the name we've given the individual little boxes that represent each resource on LearnZone. You see them whenever you do a search or view a particular audience's resources. On the home page (LearnZone.org.uk), you'll notice that the three latest resources are listed as these cards.
These cards contain a number of details that help visitors to determine if the resource is suitable for them. Each card consists of a title, a target audience, a format type (which could be: online course, toolkit, face-to-face course, etc.), a short description and a link, along with the title, that takes you to the full Resource page that explains more about that particular resource.
Supporting people affected by cancer through volunteering, self help and support groups.
Stacks are collections of related resources, grouped by a subject or theme. Working through a stack of resources provides a wealth of information on a particular topic and is a good way of starting your e-learning journey.
At the bottom of most resource pages, you'll find a list of Stacks that the resource is included in. Browsing these stacks can present you with related resources that might be just what you're looking for.
