Medical device firm Smith & Nephew PLC is phasing in a series of e-learning courses across eight countries, including Great Britain. Staff from the firm's wound-management division will be given access to a range of training courses on subjects including IT, sales and clinical use. 'The advantage of using e-learning is reduced costs and the ability to put information out quickly,' says Mark Stefko, e-business project director at Smith & Nephew. Smith & Nephew is using WBT System's TopClass e-learning software, both to create and manage the provision of online training. Most of the courses will be developed by its in-house team, although generic content from NETg and bespoke e-learning from other suppliers will also be used.
