Drug Safety Firm BioSoteria to Present on eLearning Development Experience

Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — BioSoteria, Inc., a drug safety services and education firm, will be speaking today at the 2010 Lectora® User Conference, hosted by Trivantis Corporation, the leader in elearning software for authoring and content creation. BioSoteria’s experience with Trivantis’ development tools and learning management system (LMS) to create and deliver pharmacovigilance training will be presented by Michelle Flewell, CPLP, Vice President of eLearning and Informatics at BioSoteria.

Flewell will discuss how BioSoteria, a private consulting and services company with a limited development budget, has been able to produce a series of online pharmacovigilance training courses with advanced features such as a branded user interface, assessment, tracking and bookmarking. The company’s eLadder® Safety curriculum is developed in Lectora and delivered in CourseMill® LMS, also from Trivantis.

“Because international pharmacovigilance regulations are always changing, BioSoteria needed its own authoring tool to update course content without relying on expensive specialized programmers,” said Michelle Flewell. “Lectora allows my development team to integrate all types of flash, illustration, audio, and animation files and to modify the content whenever needed, which ensures eLadder Safety courses are not only engaging but always current and reliable.”

Flewell will be joined at the 2010 Lectora User Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, by speakers from companies such as Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, Dow Chemical, Transperfect Translations and Northrop Grumman. Her presentation will include a discussion of BioSoteria’s unique LMS requirements for delivering its training courses to external clients through the internet, integrating eCommerce and registration, and allowing prospective corporate purchasers to “test drive” eLadder Safety.
