This project aims to develop and deliver a library of interactive e-learning modules focused on protein structure and function and upstream/downstream manufacturing steps for entry level employees working in biopharmaceutical process development. This e-learning library will address a significant training deficit, providing learning opportunities for employees with a scientific background who are lacking specific experience in biopharmaceutical production, broadening the potential pipeline of entry level employees. Approximately six hours of content will be delivered through 5-20 minute modules through a combination of narrated slides, short animations, process equipment videos and expert video introductions.
Articulate 360 will be used to deliver the content both as a self-contained online platform and individually exported modules for integration into a learning management system. By completing relevant modules, employees will gain a better scientific understanding of their laboratory work, improving engagement and enabling greater scientific agency. Relieving managers of this training burden enables them to focus more on company specific procedures and strategy rather than spending time teaching biopharmaceutical fundamentals to every new employee. In addition to these immediate impacts, this project will create a flexible platform which can be used to deliver online learning modules on additional topics in the future.
