San Diego, CA and Princeton, NJ (WiredPRNews.com) Blue Sky Broadcast, a developer of customized web-based learning solutions for medical, technical, scientific societies and the life science industry and Kaplan EduNeering, a leading provider of compliance and knowledge management solutions, have formed a strategic alliance to integrate their solutions for the life science industry.
“The trend among hundreds of our life science clients has been to replace some of their classroom compliance training events with web-based and video-driven sessions,” said Lisa Clune, President of Kaplan EduNeering. “For this reason, one of our strategic priorities was to identify a partner with innovative solutions to enhance the learning management experience on our cloud computing platform.”
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Blue Sky, as it will result in a single learning solution that enables clients to wrap ‘audit-ready’ records around the web event and live video session,” Clune added.
“Blue Sky Broadcast is very excited about our alliance with Kaplan EduNeering. Our on-site capture services and webcasting platforms will serve as a great complement to Kaplan’s robust offering of computer-based regulatory courses. By integrating with the Kaplan EduNeering platform, the result will be an enhanced end-user experience,” said Philip G. Forte, President, Blue Sky Broadcast.
Together, Blue Sky Broadcast and Kaplan EduNeering will create a one-stop online learning environment that wraps “audit-ready” completion records around Blue Sky Broadcast’s innovative on-demand classroom and media streaming technologies. Blue Sky’s focus on capturing spoken-word training for real-time or rapid eLearning delivery gives clients another avenue to building a fully blended solution. These training types can be stored within ComplianceWire®, the LMS available on the Kaplan EduNeering Platform and built for FDA-regulated industries, so it meets the stringent 21 CFR Part 11 requirements for electronic recordkeeping.
ComplianceWire currently supports multiple training types, including computer-based training, control documents, classroom events, and more. As a result of this strategic alliance, assignments based on web and video events that are conducted through Blue Sky Broadcast tools could be stored in ComplianceWire. What’s more, clients will achieve seamless delivery and tracking of web event training sessions to their suppliers, vendors, clinical researchers, and other non-employees. The result is an enterprise learning solution that drives down the costs of training, so life science companies can demonstrate a positive learning experience and achieve regulatory obligations.
