Introduction to EIS via WebCT Vista
By Mitch Smith, EIS Project Trainer
The EIS end-user training program is pleased to announce that our Introduction to EIS course is now available to all UNT and HSC faculty and staff via WebCT Vista (special thanks to the Center for Distributed Learning). Now that the first phase of EIS classroom training is largely complete, attention is being focused toward making EIS training materials more broadly available, available on an ongoing basis, and available on demand. The WebCT version of Introduction to EIS is an important milestone and marks a turning point in EIS project team efforts to support the UNT System community in its transition to EIS.
As the EIS implementation moves forward, expanding training needs such as the need to offer training to new employees individually, to condition EIS security paradigms upon individuals' having received certain training, or to reach numbers of people that classrooms can't accommodate provide opportunities to take advantage of many of the benefits eLearning solutions like WebCT have to offer.
EIS training staff in the Computing and Information Technology Center are currently working with trainers in the functional areas to adapt more specialized courses for selective delivery via the Web. At the same time, we are also generating infrastructure and formalizing procedures for maintaining training and support documentation to ensure it is kept up to date and for integrating these mechanisms with EIS' own training administration module to ensure that EIS training you receive is accurately reflected in your employee record.
UNT/HSC faculty and staff who haven't attended one of the Introduction to EIS classroom sessions, or who are curious about EIS eLearning are invited to sign up for the online version of the course at http://web2.unt.edu/eis/Training/signup_form.php . After signing up you will receive a confirmation email directing you to http://webctvista.unt.edu where you will be able to log in under UNT System Training using your EUID and enterprise password and complete the class from any web-connected PC.
