Research Cloud Training
Train the trainer
Many research groups depend on local champions and local instructors to take advantage of Cloud computing technology. The Nectar Cloud “Train the Trainer” workshop teaches these key enablers an effective way of teaching groups of beginning Nectar Cloud users. Nectar has delivered this training workshop for support staff at Nectar nodes.
“I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from both the other 5 trainee trainers, and from the 25 trainee researchers participating in day 2… I’ve already seen one of the participating researchers building a sophisticated cloud compute solution that he just wouldn’t have built without the confidence from the researcher training.” – Just Berkhout, TPAC
A suite of ten modules including instructional video are freely available online. Also see your closest cloud node for face-to-face training opportunities.
Running a face-to-face session
If you are interested in running your own training session on the Nectar research cloud, there are some online resources to assist.
