Introduction As the range of information and services on the Internet expands, so does the potential user population. Given the significant investment in the network and the various networked information and data services, it is essential that the broad spectrum of potential users are made aware of these services. In particular they require training in using these facilities and in making effective use of the tools available for searching for and retrieving information available on the global network. Foster, et. al. Informational [Page 2]
RFC 2007 Catologue of Network Training Materials October 1996 The rapid expansion of the user base has made it difficult for network trainers to keep up with the demand for training. Librarians, Computing Service staff and subject-based Network Support staff all have a vital role to play in training users. Easy access to quality network training materials and the pooling of resources will help spread the load. The purpose of this document is to provide a catalogue of quality Network Training Materials for use by Internet trainers. By providing such a collection of pointers to useful resources, it is hoped that trainers will be relieved of much of the load of producing current training materials. The intention is to make this a "living document". It will be held on-line so that each section may be updated separately as appropriate. 2. How the information was collected The information contained in this report was collected over the network by volunteers from the Trainmat Working Group from the contacts for each network training resource using the Trainmat template (see Appendix A). The contents of this template had been discussed by the Trainmat WG at its meetings and on the mailing list. The decision on whether or not to include an item was made by the members of the working group. 3. What is covered? This catalogue covers network training materials. These are categorised as follows: Presentation Material: including OHP masters, speaker's hand-outs and speaker's notes Workshop Exercises: including workshop hand-outs as well as detailed instructions for undertaking hands-on exercises Self-Paced Material: including online tutorials Some material such as selected User Guides, Resource Guides and Trainer Guides are of particular use to trainers and have been included as appropriate. The resource lists included are those assembled for training purposes and those frequently used or referred to in training. Special Online Collections of training materials are now available and a selection of these is included. Foster, et. al. Informational [Page 3]
RFC 2007 Catologue of Network Training Materials October 1996 The full list of Categories used is: User Guides Resource Guides Trainer Guides Presentation Material Workshop Exercises Self-Paced Material Online Collections 4. Updating information The catalogue is available online. As this will be more up to date than the RFC version, the online version should be used as the basis for any updates. The WWW version of the document provides a mechanism, through an HTML form, to send updates (and new material) to the maintainers of this catalogue. To access the document online you may use the World Wide Web using: http://www.trainmat.ietf.org/catalogue.html http://www.trainmat.ietf.org/template.html Updates to the catalogue are welcome and can be made by either completing a template and sending it to "catalogue@connect.com.au" or (preferably) by using the HTML form on the World Wide Web http://www.trainmat.ietf.org/form.html The new and revised entries are reviewed by a small international editorial board made up of TRAINMAT volunteers. The updating of the catalogue is done on a best effort basis and is subject to review. 5. Network Training Materials This section contains the completed templates of network training material, as received by the publication date of this document. The online versions of this document may have more up to date material. The material falls into the following broad categories (see also section 3): User Guides Resource Guides Trainer Guides Presentation material Workshop exercises Self-paced material On-Line Collections Foster, et. al.

Appendix B: Notes on completing the TrainMat template 1. Selecting a new resource for inclusion When considering a new resource for inclusion in the Trainmat Catalogue, you will need to ask a few questions to decide whether or not it should be included. 1.1 Does the item belong in a Training Materials Catalogue? This catalogue covers network training materials, including self teaching materials, and other resources which facilitate and support training. A generous interpretation of what constitutes 'training materials' is appropriate. (See also the note 3.2 on 'Category'.) Training can be thought of as 'seeking to change behaviour', and if a document does try to do that, then it can be considered for inclusion in this catalogue. A document that leads the reader through sample exercises may come into this category, but a reference card listing the commands to use does not. Appropriate resource lists to include are lists assembled for training purposes and lists frequently used or referred to in training. As this is an international catalogue it is generally not appropriate to include material for specific services or networks. That said, some national or regional network training material is of sufficient generality to be considered for inclusion. 1.2 Is the content reasonably up-to-date and worth including? It is intended that the catalogue contains a selection of quality training materials, not a comprehensive list of everything available. Some degree of 'quality control' is needed on the entries. You will need to decide whether the item is still relevant and reasonably up- Foster, et. al. Informational [Page 45]
RFC 2007 Catologue of Network Training Materials October 1996 to-date. Anything which is two or more years old requires careful scrutiny. 1.3 Is it easily available? Is there an established mechanism for obtaining it? This doesn't mean it has to be free. 2. Submitting a new or revised template The template for inputting new entries to the catalogue is given in Appendix A. The prefered method of inputting new or updated information is via an HTML form accessible via the following URL: http://www.trainmat.ietf.org/form.html You will need to use a Web browser with forms capability. Input should be quite straightforward. There are drop-down menus to help with input to some fields. Alternatively, completed templates may be emailed to: catalogue@connect.com.au This mailing list is a small closed 'review' group for deciding whether or not an item should be included in the catalogue. Please note that when you enter a new template you will be listed as the person responsible for the entry. The same procedures may be used by the person responsible for an entry, to update an existing entry. 3. Notes on completing the various fields of the template The intention is to keep each entry reasonably short (and preferably not more than one page in length). Descriptions and other long fields should therefore be kept to a reasonable length. Note that fields continued on the next line should be indented by at least one white space Each completed template is auto-allocated a "handle" to uniquely identify it. Foster, et. al. Informational [Page 46]
RFC 2007 Catologue of Network Training Materials October 1996 3.1 Handle A unique identifier for the material at this source. This field is usually automatically generated and need not be entered when creating a new entry from the template. 3.2 Category "Category" should be selected from the following set: User Guides Resource Guides Trainer Guides Presentation material Workshop Exercises Self-Paced material On-Line Collections Only user guides that are particularly useful in training should be included. Appropriate resource lists to include are lists assembled for training purposes and lists frequently used or referred to in training. Presentation material would include OHP masters, speaker's hand-outs and speaker's notes. Workshop exercises would include workshop hand-outs as well as detailed instructions for undertaking hands-on exercises. Self-Paced material would include online tutorials. Online Collections are useful lists of training materials. 3.3 Country The ISO two letter country code followed by the English words should be used. For example: US - United States AU - Australia A full list of these codes is available from: ftp://mcsun.eu.net/documents/iso/ISO-3166 Foster, et. al. Informational [Page 47]
RFC 2007 Catologue of Network Training Materials October 1996 3.4 Title This should be a short title for the item (90 characters or less).
