EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING RESOURCES
We provide video tutorials demonstrating use of our online public resources and tools. To explore and view the videos, check out our Tutorial Library or visit our YouTube channel, where you can subscribe if you want to be alerted when new videos are posted.
Live training workshops
We conduct in-person training sessions in locations throughout the world. Our 2014 calendar will be based on your interest; please Contact Us if you are interested in helping to organize a session at your institution. There is no cost to attend.
We offer two types of sessions:
- Training workshops: Training workshops are in-person sessions that usually last three hours and cover some subset of our online public resources. These sessions provide an introduction to the resources, cover basic and advanced searches, and offer a hands-on walkthrough of navigation and visualization features.
- User group sessions: The user group sessions are more informal forums where attendees can learn about our latest offerings, get questions answered, give us feedback, and interact with other users. Although these sessions are scheduled for two hours, attendees are not required to stay the entire time.
2014 Online Webinar Demonstrations
We also offer free online demonstrations with global accessibility. Webinars in 2014 will cover basic data access, navigation and usability, as well as more sophisticated search and visualization features for all of the Allen Brain Atlas resources.
To be informed of upcoming Webinars, please email Contact Us indicating your interest in our 2014 Webinar Series.
