Training OnDemand

Instant coaching via phone, email, or Skype for Business (Lync)

As the technological landscape becomes ever more diverse, users can feel overwhelmed by the scope of options available to them. Too, the vast myriad of options within each application they have available to them can get confusing and overwhelming. Users often come across problems or questions specific to the way they use technology to do their very specialized work at inopportune times. These users need training that focuses on what they need when they need it.

With this in mind, User Services is launching a new program aimed at providing just-in-time coaching to work through skills gaps that prevent the completion of work that is under a deadline. Training OnDemand will be available for users needing to break through barriers to solve immediate problems.

Web-Based Technical Training

Lynda.com offers online tutorials on several technical applications including Outlook, Excel, HTML, and Flash. Tutorials vary in length and participants can choose viewing an entire tutorial or simply learn about a specific technique. This can be most helpful when you have an important project to complete with time constraints.

One-on-One Training Sessions

One-on-one training sessions provide an opportunity for you to receive focused attention. Unlike classroom sessions, this type of individual coaching is usually held in the offices of trainees on their own computers. This provides the advantage of learning in your own working environment, using your own custom settings, etc.
