AOA Launches Revamped EyeLearn Platform, Improves Accessibility of CE Resource

The member-benefit online learning system offers an expanding catalog of continuing education and professional development courses.




(PRESS RELEASE) The American Optometric Association (AOA) welcomes members to a greater, more accessible user-experience on the AOA EyeLearn Professional Development Hub after an all-encompassing overhaul makes obtaining continuing education (CE) and professional development easier than ever before. Home to over 50 different CE and professional development courses for doctors, paraoptometrics and optometry students, AOA EyeLearn adds new courses monthly to support the growth of contemporary optometry.

AOA’s member-exclusive online learning platform and centralized education resource launched Feb. 7 with an entirely new look and feel that promotes a user-friendly experience. The AOA EyeLearn overhaul reflects the AOA’s continued modernization of its educational opportunities, starting with the year-long curriculum of contemporary optometric CE and professional development available through AOA EyeLearn and accessible, in-person, at Optometry’s Meeting.

In addition to the catalog of doctor and paraoptometric courses, many available for AOA CE hours or Commission on Paraoptometric Certification (CPC) credit, the new learning management system allows AOA EyeLearn greater functionality to deliver:

  • Fully integrated, live webinars. Log in to AOA EyeLearn to participate in the impactful #AskAOA webinar series or Paraoptometric Speaker Series. The integration makes it easier for members to register, attend and access recordable content—all in one place.
  • User-curated educational content. Customize your learning experience by searching the AOA EyeLearn catalog, flagging interesting courses or subject matter and adding them to your personalized account. Access those courses whenever it is easiest for you; users have start/stop functionality to control their learning speed. Additionally, the new platform tells users when new or timely courses are available.
  • Keep track of your CE all in one place. Use your personalized AOA EyeLearn account as a CE wallet: complete AOA CE hours or CPC-credited courses inside AOA EyeLearn and the system automatically populates earned credits to your account. What’s more, users can upload CE earned outside of the AOA to keep record of your education all in one place.

“The new AOA EyeLearn platform is designed to be user-friendly and easy to use, so doctors, paraoptometrics or students can freely scan our catalog and find the education that speaks to their individual needs,” says Brad Lane, O.D., M.Ed., AOA Education Center Committee co-chair. “The AOA EyeLearn has a wide range of education, from clinical and practice management pearls to staff training and professional development, that carries out the AOA’s prioritization of impactful, year-round education.”
