New Partnership Brings The Packaging School Course Offerings to TAPPI Members

TAPPI has partnered with The Packaging School (TPS), the exclusive licensee of a professional packaging curriculum developed at Clemson University, to offer online education to our members.

TPS is a global platform where you can learn skills on a variety of topics such as consumer packaged goods branding, distribution testing, supply chain optimization, sustainable packaging, contract manufacturing, processing, design software, and more.

TPS utilizes a technique called MicroLearning to break difficult topics down into lessons of bite-sized chunks (less than 7 minutes) that students can engage with on any device. These lessons take the form of infographics, quick readings, videos, animations, discussions, and interactive slides. This delivery method empowers students to complete courses at their leisure, when they’re ready to learn, and still gain an essential education.

Courses are organized by Modules, which are composed of lessons and cover 3-5 learning goals over an hour-long engagement period. All lessons are unique, so the number of lessons it takes to communicate a course varies. Most courses incorporate 1-8 hours of engagement.
