All IS Training courses for staff

Lunchtime sessions

Each term we offer a handful of talks to introduce you to a range of applications used for a particular task and help you to decide which is right for you.

Book a place Taming long documents
Word processing is easy, sometimes too easy. This talk covers some of the less well known features of Word processors and introduces some alternatives to Microsoft Word, including OpenOffice, LaTeX and online document production. A little bit of software knowledge can make writers more productive and allow you to concentrate on content while you let the machine take care of the tedium.
Book a place Bibliographies
This talk looks at how the right application can help you in literature searching, compiling databases of reference material and integrating the results with word processing or document production software to handle citations and reference lists. We will discuss EndNote and Reference Manager, look at online catalogues and databases and compare them with a different approach pioneered by the web application Zotero.
Book a place Statistical Computing Without Tears
This talk introduces the different software solutions available at UCL for statistical computing, including descriptive and inferential statistics, charting and visualisation. Applications include SPSS, Stata, Excel, Sigma Plot, Minitab, Matlab and web applications. We will cover the benefits and suitability of each and what affects the decision as to which to use.
