Why ISO 13485 Matters if You’re Translating Medical Content

Apr 23, 10:00-11:00 am (Pacific Time) Online Webinar

Regulatory requirements are increasingly stringent throughout every step of a product’s life cycle, including service and delivery. In addition, organizations in the industry are expected to demonstrate their quality management processes and ensure best practice in everything they do, including language translation. This internationally agreed standard sets out the requirements for a quality management system specific to the medical devices industry.

Join Director of Language Services, Mike McDermott and Strategic Advisor and Consultant Scott Bass of MadTranslation to learn about the international standard, ISO 13485, and why it matters if you are creating content for the medical industry.

Microlearning: Less Can Be Much More

May 7, 10:00-11:00 am (Pacific Time) Online Webinar
Presenter: Scott DeLoach, Certified Flare Instructor and Consultant | ClickStart, Inc.

Microlearning can provide immediate useful training based on a learner's current questions and needs. It can also be reused outside traditional learning content in chatbots, voice-assistance systems, online help, knowledge bases, and AR/VR environments. Microlearning is also part of a much larger shift by search engines to recognize and feature-focused, solution-based content.

In this webinar, you will learn how to identify microlearning and how it compares to other types of microcontent. We will explore real-world examples of microlearning across a wide range of uses and industries, and we will discuss best practices for both developing new microlearning and mining microlearning "blocks" from existing content. We will also review options for reusing microlearning outside our own learning systems and products.
