With December came the renewal of our contracts with online training companies SkillSoft and KnowledgeNet. UNT CITC ACS provides free online training from these companies to all University community members. For more information, see the computer-based training website at www.unt.edu/cbt/.
You can directly login to the training can by visiting https://cbt.acs.unt.edu/logon.htm and access courseware with your EUID and password. Please note that if you are fairly new to UNT, you may not yet be in the system (I update the rolls at the end of registration), and if you encounter this, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes and additions
Currently our KnowledgeNet and SkillSoft course offerings feature older versions of technologies such as Windows 2000 and Office 2000. With our new order, we will be receiving training on the latest versions of software from Microsoft as well as general courses on Linux and Macromedia products.
We have dropped our Adobe training because the Adobe company itself now provides excellent free online training (discussed in another article in this issue of Benchmarks Online). We have also added some new courses including several pertinent offerings in security issues and procedures and some Human Resources instruction in workplace management, compliance, and ethics. We are also happy to be able to offer training in Microsoft server 2003 technologies to students. Folks utilizing the more technical aspects of PeopleSoft will be interested in using our courseware in Crystal Reports and Oracle 10g. I will send announcements when these contracts get processed and these new courses are available.
Please also note that in addition to the Adobe online courseware, we will also be getting in new e-learning modules for faculty and staff on Microsoft Office 2003 and Server 2003. This online training that comes directly from Microsoft itself will be announced as soon as it arrives and interested persons can have it installed on their machines by their network managers.
