ISSS New User Workshop

ISSS New User Workshop

The ISSS New User Workshop is a 4 hour workshop designed for staff at new client institutions or for new staff who have not previously worked with Terra Dotta software.

This workshop will be primarily lecture and demonstration; participants should bring their laptop to follow along on their own production or sandbox site.  Material will be covered in an intensive-format learning environment, so attendees should bring energy and enthusiasm for a fast-paced and fun workshop.  

During the workshop, participants will receive a comprehensive list of relevant Knowledgebase articles to take away for future use and will be given suggestions for conference sessions that will enhance what they are learning about a particular topic.
 
In this workshop, you will:
 
  • Learn the building blocks of the software
  • Gain an understanding of the available features
  • Become more accustomed to common Terra Dotta vocabulary
  • Network with other users who are also new to the software
  • Gain knowledge that will provide context for the rest of the conference
     
The first half of the workshop will focus on:
  • Building a user friendly and engaging site for both your users and administrators.
  • Utilizing the full functionality of the software to streamline your process.
  • Becoming familiar with not only the administrative view, but also the user perspective.

The second half of the workshop will focus on:
  • Introduction to the SEVIS Module​ and all the ways it's designed to make your job easier.
  • Hands on DSO/RO experience utilizing the software to connect with SEVIS to process an action.
  • Learn tips and tricks to help you optimize your use of TDS​.
