Updated eLearning Courses

The following courses have been updated with the latest product release information. Currently, the course updates are only available in English. We strongly encourage this revised course as it would benefit all users to familiarize themselves with the course updates.

  • Medidata Rave RTSM: Edit Live Design 

    This course has been updated with the latest functionality as of the 2019.2.0 release. It includes demonstrations of how to add new or edit existing study arms, treatment compositions, and dosing factors. The course will also demonstrate how to disable/enable active study arms, treatment compositions, and dosing factors from previously saved versions of the study.

  • Medidata Rave RTSM: Shipping to Return Depots and Destroying Items at Site
    This course used to be called "Medidata Balance Shipping to Destruction Depots". It has now been renamed with the latest branding standard. The course is also updated based on the following release features:

    • 2018.1.0 Release
      • Includes a section on how to destroy items at designated destruction sites
    • 2019.2.0 Release
      • Includes the updated terminology for device-friendly studies, such as renaming "destruction" terms to "return" if the study only has assigned return depots or "return/destruction" if the study has assigned return depots and allows sites to destroy inventory.
      • Demonstrates how to de-select numbered items when destroying items at a designated destruction site.

New and Updated Videos

To support the 2019.2.0 updates, we also updated the Rave RTSM Video Library on Knowledge Space with the following content:


Topic New Videos Updated Videos
Shipping to Return Depots / Destroying Items at Site
Edit Live Design
  • Editing and Publishing a Live Study Design in Rave RTSM
    • Formally known as "Editing Live Study Design in Rave RTSM", this video used to be long and only showed the limited functions of Edit Live Design. Since the 2019.2.0 release expanded the Edit Live Design abilities, we have moved the steps that showed how to edit Randomization Factors and how to modify Permuted Block site specific options, and move them to 2 new individual videos (see the links in the New column).Therefore, this video will only cover how to initiate the Edit Live Design process, and how to publish the Edit Live Design changes.
