Nobel Biocare today announced it is making free training and educational material available to dentists, dental specialists, students and patients on its new site found on iTunes U on the iTunes Store. Nobel Biocare is the first med-tech company to have its own presence on iTunes U.
T&E (Training & Education) is one of Nobel Biocare’s main strengths. One of the key trends in education on which Nobel Biocare wants to continue to build its reputation is the rapid development of e-learning. Found in the “Beyond Campus” section of iTunes U, Nobel Biocare’s Training & Education program will provide easy, state-of-the-art on-demand e-learning. Beginning today, users can search and download training and education material directly from the site, and then experience it on their Mac or PC, or sync with iPod or iPhone to learn anywhere, anytime.
Today, Nobel Biocare already maintains T&E partnership agreements with twenty-four leading dental universities worldwide through its University Partner Program, a peer-to-peer collaboration that assists academic dental institutions to integrate the latest Crown, Bridge, and Implant coursework into their undergraduate programs. The Program provides academic institutions with the latest science-based treatment expertise, clinical competency development, high-tech educational tools, and support with implant restorations and CAD/CAM dentistry concepts.
Domenico Scala, CEO Nobel Biocare: “Nobel Biocare on iTunes U demonstrates our commitment to sharing our broad experience in T&E with the next generation of dental professionals. iTunes U provides an innovative way for us to engage millions of students and dental professionals with state-of-the art dental education.”
iTunes U is a dedicated area within the iTunes Store (www.itunes.com) featuring free educational content such as course lectures, language lessons, lab demonstrations and more. iTunes software, a free download, is required.
