This training session
will review the following concepts:
(3) Training session options:
B.) Web-based training session - a "stand alone" version viewed via a Web browser, with embedded "Instructor Notes" included. This lesson version may be viewed at any time. These slides are ideal for printing from a Web browser.
C.) Web-based VISITview session - This version uses the VISITview software within a Web browser, and may be viewed at any time. It retains all the functionality of the VISITview software which you see in a "live" teletraining session. The Instructor Notes are not included in this lesson version, but can be viewed in a separate Web browser (or printed out beforehand).
D.) local VISITview session - This is the same version of the lesson used in a "live" VISITview teletraining session, but no connection is made to an external VISITview server. You may download the file off this page and go through the lesson on your own in "local mode" by starting the visitlocal.bat file. Instructor Notes are not included in this lesson version, but can be viewed in a separate Web browser ( or printed out beforehand).
(4) References/Additional Links
Instructor Notes have been developed which list the salient points to discuss on each page of the VISITview lesson. Using these notes while running the lesson in "visitlocal" mode will allow students to view the material in a "standalone" mode, without the need for a VISIT instructor.
