This report was prepared for the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The purpose of this project was to asses the feasibility of automated patent examiner training for Technology Center 2100. Screencasting tutorials were created from data gathered by studying course content and interviews with training staff. The tools were assessed by interviews, a focus group, and a survey of patent examiners. Recommendations from this data discuss automated training implementation strategies and encourage future use of automated training.
