SkillSoft LogoProject Management Courses Added to the SkillPort CBT Website

By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager

New Project Management Training has been added to the SkillPort CBT Learning Website for use by faculty, staff, and students though it is anticipated that this training will be of the most help to UNT staff. Begun as an initiative for the entire Computing and Information Technology Center, such training and project management awareness should prove beneficial to the entire UNT community as we set forth on implementing the goals of the strategic plan and providing for our increasing number of students and academic programs.

The new project management courses listed on the UNT SkillPort website

The courses are listed under Project Management Training/Project Management Essentials on the SkillPort website and a complete listing of the training is also on the UNT CBT Contents webpage. Another more advanced suite of Project Management training will be added in January 2006. The SkillPort course description outlines some of the advantages of project planning and training:

Imagine trying to control the unexpected and unpredictable through processes in such a way that you meet the cost, quality, and time expectations of all invested parties in order to accomplish a temporary endeavor. This is the mission of project management. Challenging? Yes. Impossible? No. All industries employ project managers to implement processes as a way to control business. In fact, the field of project management is rapidly expanding, as more companies become project-based organizations....With standards and best practices to follow and the know-how to incorporate these, organizations can offer "world class" project management. In this course, learners will be given an overview of the project management discipline....This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations.

As always, information about all computer-based training at UNT can be found at www.unt.edu/cbt and UNT community members can log in to this training at https://cbt.acs.unt.edu/logon.htm. Department managers are encouraged to contact the UNT CBT Administrator at ehinkle@unt.edu if they wish for certain employees to be specifically assigned these courses on the SkillPort training website.
