Resources to Build or Refresh Your IDEA Skills

Tech Tip Explores Resources Available to Supported IDEA Users

Eight months ago, IDEA was installed, you provided your team with excellent on-site training, and the team spent several days determining internal best practices for how they would use IDEA. The big roll-out went well. Now, everyone is saving time, working more efficiently, and IDEA is your main “go-to” tool for data analysis.

There are several resources you can use to either refresh your team’s IDEA skills or train a new team member.

Four tutorials install to your PC when IDEA is installed. They are the Advanced Statistical Methods Case Study, the IDEA Tutorial, The Report Reader Tutorial, and the SmartAnalyzer Tutorial. We recommend you start a new employee with the IDEA Tutorial and follow with the Report Reader Tutorial.

To access all the “built-in” tutorials, click your computer’s Start button, navigate to the IDEA folder, expand it, and select the desired tutorial.

But wait – there’s more! Go to audimation.com and click on “Resources” in the heading.

In Resources, you’ll see a wealth of helpful information including “how to” videos, articles (including past Tech Tips), and self-study aids.
