The J.A. Woollam Company is proud to announce an online course focused on the analysis of anisotropic materials. This course will use CompleteEASE software for analysis. There will be ten sessions in total, with one session every Tuesday over a 10 week period. The sessions will be 2 hours long.
If you use a different J.A. Woollam software package (i.e. WVASE), please contact us for details regarding pertinent courses of interest for you.
Each registered participant will be invited to participate in sessions, and to view recordings of each session afterwards. In addition to internet-sessions, students will receive relevant example data sets to practice. Homework can be sent to the instructor as a CompleteEASE SnapShot file for review prior to the next session. Registered participants who submit >70% of the homework will receive a certificate of participation.
Participants must have internet access to participate in the webinar so they can log onto the course via GoToWebinar. For audio, participants can either call one of the numbers provided by GoToWebinar at the time of the session, or access audio from their computer via a VoIP connection from GoToWebinar. Participants who are from the same organization/facility are welcome to participate from a conference room using a commonly shared computer, projector and audio connection.
Recordings of all sessions will made available to registered participants during the course and for a period afterwards.
