Data collection has been collected through interviews , focusgroup interviews and user driven methods. The qualitative data analysis has been used. In the study the participants (N= 138) are the elderly, family caregivers, persons with mental health problems, disabled persons and families with children and young people in child welfare. Also professionals (N=62) from various service environments are participating in the study.

From the learning point of view students are actively participating in online programme by planning, implementing and evaluating. Also thesis works have been done in CaringTV. The contents of the programme are part of their studies e.g. in nursing or physiotherapy fields. During studies students are producing also informative materials via CaringTV e.g. pictures and individual guidelines for support participant’s daily activities and rehabilitation. Based on LbD students of Master Programme in Health Care are involving in developing e-services, e.g. having e-nurse consultation in CaringTV.
