While our best practice recommendation is to join us at a workshop or bring one of our trainers to your campus, we know that isn’t always the ideal option for you. So we have created the next best thing: a way for you to get the training you need when you need it.

Intended Audience
This course is for the beginning encoder and is appropriate for ANY version of uAchieve or DARwin. It is also an appropriate pre-cursor to the uAchieve Intermediate Encoding Workshop.

The uAchieve Basics Online provides the same content as our in-person uAchieve Basic Encoding workshop—including hands-on exercises—delivered via web browser to your computer screen.

Specific lesson content includes:

  • Navigation tips and tricks
  • Building and testing a degree program
  • Defining courses in uAchieve
  • Allowing/restricting course repeat and reuse
  • Processing flow
