Long-term hospital patients with severe chronic illnesses are likely to suffer from being isolated from their everyday lives. Thus, learning activities that go beyond illness related issues might ease the reintegration upon discharge. Hospital patients are restricted in their time-space coordinates and might hence benefit from the flexibility of e-learning. This article presents the evaluation of a job orientation course for young adult patients suffering from brain cancer and other severe illnesses. The course was offered in the scope of the European project eHospital. Evaluation instruments were questionnaires for patients and trainers, interviews with the hospital staff, a focus group discussion with the project consortium, and expert ratings of the online materials. The results indicated high satisfaction of the participants and good learning outcomes. Impeding factors were the organizational and technical conditions in the hospital and insufficient IT skills of the patients.
