What are the new changes to MHPOD?

One National MHPOD

On 30 June 2017, the MHPOD state websites will be merged into a single website that allows for self-registration. This change will increase MHPOD's reach, in addition to providing better reporting and content management.

The change requires us to merge multiple databases, as such we can't guarantee the uniqueness of usernames between them, existing users will need to re-register on the new site.

Below is some very important information existing users need to know before the change occurs to reduce issues with registration and transferring previously earned credits.

INFORMATION FOR Existing users who re-register with their current email address.

If you register with the same email address you currently use, the system will automatically credit any previously earned credits.

INFORMATION FOR Existing users who re-register with a different email address.

If you use a different email address, a function called 'Find my work' will enable you to transfer credits using your previous username and password.

We strongly suggest you record your current username and password so that the new website can automatically credit you with your past course completions when using the Find my work function. You can check your details via the "Profile" tab after logging in.

If the new server can't match you automatically by email address and you don't remember your username and password (for example you are relying on your web browser to remember these details) the new system will not be able to restore your previously earned credits.
