Learning Lab is a learning management system that offers interactive, specialized, and comprehensive online training courses for beginner, intermediate, and advanced Slate users.
Fundamentals of Slate
With our Fundamentals of Slate online courses, users learn the core principles and foundational concepts of Slate at their own pace through interactive, online course content. These courses teach database decision-makers to build and maintain their institution's database.
Register for a Fundamentals of Slate course at any time and access it for one full year from the registration date.
In addition to the Fundamentals of Slate content, other courses are launched throughout the year to expand fundamental Slate knowledge and dive deeper into functional areas, including communications, queries and reports, permissions, portals, and more.
The Slate Knowledge Base offers extensive documentation, guides, training videos, webinars, technical articles, and other relevant resources. In addition to resources in the Knowledge Base, inline documentation is directly available in Slate and dynamically displays relevant articles.
