Calendar September 11, 2014

Applied Materials is an acknowledged semiconductor industry leader that employs 13,700 people in 84 locations in 18 countries. The organization’s success depends upon a workforce of professionals from all disciplines—technical, management, finance, training, and more.

best practices in eLearningTo “demystify” the semiconductor industry for employees who likely never saw a wafer, donned a clean-room suit, or stepped into a fabrication area, Applied Materials is working with Flatirons to create a 90-minute eLearning program. The goal of the eLearning program is to ensure that all employees have a baseline understanding of the industry and can speak with a unified voice that reflects Applied Materials’ contributions to the industry.

On September 23, Scott Pond, curriculum development manager from Applied Materials, and Dave Pepin, Flatirons customer engagement manager, will present a Best Practices Showcase on the eLearning program at the 2014 Best Practices Conference.

Scott and Dave will discuss best practices in training and eLearning used in the project, including:

  • The benefits of up-front analysis
  • Placing objectives at the heart of every decision
  • Basing all interface and navigation choices on human factors research
  • Accommodating multiple formats to enable tablet-ready content
  • Guiding learners through exploration and experience
  • The critical role of communication
