Challenges in Providing e-Learning Solutions in the Regulated Pharmaceutical Industry.
Vesper, James L.
Regulatory agencies around the world require that those involved in producing pharmaceutical products be adequately trained. E-learning can accomplish this, providing consistent delivery and learner assessment. However, there are some unique expectations that regulators and the pharmaceutical industry have of e-learning solutions. These include approved electronic records and signatures that have reliability and integrity, system and application validation, and assessment of learning. While these expectations are a challenge to e-learning courseware producers, they contribute to the production of high quality, robust courseware. (Author)
