We know that pharmacy topics cover a ton of information like drug types and dosages and it can get overwhelming for your team. There are a lot of compliance policies that need to be covered too. But, SC Training (formerly EdApp) was built with microlearning in mind. This means that all of the templates on the course builder were specifically designed to deliver digestible content from whatever kind of materials you have.

Templates also include quizzes, games, and other interactive elements that engage learners. The tool has file converters too.  Simply upload your PowerPoint, PDFs, or other kinds of documents, and it’ll turn your materials into beautiful microlessons.
