“However … Just like classroom training, online learning requires engagement at every level of the process. From upper management down to the learners themselves—there has to be some kind of engagement strategy in place. Without this high level of engagement, your training programme is doomed to failure. This means that your training’s return on investment is reliant on the amount of effort you put into effectively engaging your staff with their own self-development.”

The FDA says, “Human error is not a root cause.” If your first reflex is blaming human error, it’s time to re-think the situation in order to identify the real root cause of the human error.
There are several categories of human errors: slips, lapses, and induced errors. These can account for a large percentage of errors. In order to understand these human errors in more detail, they can be investigated through the use of investigative tools such as a Walk Through Analysis or Control Barrier Analysis.
Once the underlying contributing factors and real root cause(s) are understood, then they can be controlled (in many cases).
One of the top reasons for a company to receive a 483 is a deficiency in the deviation investigation process. In this onsite hands-on workshop, employees learn the most effective tools to determine the real root cause of the problem. Attendees use actual plant deviations to practice the use of the tools. Allan Dewes (SkillsPlus International Inc.) has taught this course all over the world with exceptional results.
” . . . it comes as no surprise that the use of video in E-Learning is on the rise. Accompanied with an influx in the use of digital storytelling as an educational tool, videos are a fun approach to creating bite-sized and engaging E-Learning modules.”
. . . In addition to images, you may want to consider using a wide range of multimedia elements to increase immersion and appeal to all senses. For instance, you can integrate video and audio components that create a more interactive and engaging eLearning environment.”
“If you already implement online training, then you’ll want to assess how you can improve your online training courses/modules/events to get the most out of your training efforts. Are there modules that may need to be shortened or lived up by adding graphics and/or videos? Are you updating your online training courses regularly so that employees can find out about the latest products or services your company is offering?”
“6. Include audio or video to create a more immersive experience. Audio or video integration is ideal, especially if you are trying to make your eLearning presentation more dynamic and interactive. Narration, background music, and video explanations are all examples of multimedia tools that you can and should use.”
Help your learners by breaking down your course material into easily digestible “chunks” of course content.
Chunking GMP content helps learners process and understand information better.
The chunking technique applies to teaching and training GMPs too. For that reason, we’ve launched a new product line, The cGMP Mini-Series. The mini-series is designed as brief 6-10 minute long video clips that you can insert into your Powerpoint slides, or LMS (learning management system) courses.
We’re about cGMP E-learning & Multimedia Resources.
Don’t Work Hard – Work Smarter
Today, many trainers are developing their own e-learning courses and PowerPoint presentations. Developing collateral material to make these programs interesting is very time-consuming. SkillsPlus International Inc. has developed video resources which can be plugged into PowerPoint presentations, added to e-learning courses, or uploaded to learning management systems. Crafted in short segments, 6-10 minutes long, they are designed to entertain and reinforce a simple key learning message
