Network Training Materials (trainmat)
Charter Status: Concluded October, 1996 Chair(s): Jill Foster Margaret Isaacs Mark Prior Description of Working Group: Note: Working Group concluded on 10/14/96 Widespread familiarity with global network services and competence in using them brings benefit to individual users, enriches the information skills and resources of the community and optimizes the return in investment in networked services. The Network Training Materials Working Group is chartered to enable the research community to make better use of the networked services. Towards this end, the working group will work to provide a mix of training materials for the broad academic community which will: (1) enable user support staff to train users to use the networked services, and (2) provide users with self-paced learning material. In the first instance, it will not deal with operational training. This working group is the IETF component of a joint TERENA/IETF group working on network training materials. The working group will create a catalogue of existing network training materials (using the IAFA style Data Elements where appropriate), identify the gaps in network training materials and work to identify the problems associated with hands on training workshops using networked services providing a real service.
