IT Service Management: ITIL Foundation charged Mon 13 Mar 2017   09:00 Finished

This instructor-led fee based course has been commissioned by the UIS through a third party company.

ITIL is Best Practice IT Service Management which is used by many organisations around the world. A whole ITIL philosophy has grown up around the guidance contained within the ITIL books and the supporting certification and qualification scheme.

The ethos behind the development of ITIL is the recognition that organisations are becoming increasingly dependent on IT in order to satisfy their corporate aims and meet their business needs. This leads to an increased requirement for reliable, high-quality IT services.

The ITIL Foundation course provides IT managers, practitioners, support staff and staff interfacing with the information systems function with a practical understanding of the key concepts, principles, processes and functions that enables successful IT service management provision. It also prepares delegates for the ITIL Foundation Certificate Examination. The course is based on the ITIL best practice service lifecycle approach featured in the latest 2011 guidelines.

ITIL Foundation is the entry level qualification of the ITIL Qualifications scheme.

IT Supporters: Training for the New Password App Thu 16 May 2019   09:30 Finished

A full day course for Computer Officers on the UIS password application and the skills they will need to use it. Major topics covered include:

  • Computing Service policies regarding UIS accounts
  • Privacy briefing covering the legal status of UIS accounts and your obligations to users
  • Assertiveness training to assist you in dealing with problematic requests
  • Demonstration of the new password application
  • Online test

This course includes descriptions of the circumstances under which you may, and more importantly, may not give out account details (including password reset tokens). The examples and scenarios used are based on actual requests and incidents, and includes some content that could be distressing. This material is specifically included to ensure that Computer Officers are aware of the social engineering techniques that have been used in attempts to gain access to accounts, often under difficult and stressful circumstances. This is intended to assist you in developing the skills to deal appropriately with such situations if they occur within your own institution and forms an essential part of the course.

Successful completion of this course and the online exam is mandatory for Computer Officers wishing to have password resetting authority using the UIS password application for a range of University wide services including Hermes, Raven and the MCS.

Mendeley is a free, open source reference management program. It was originally primarily intended as a way to manage collections of PDF documents and this is still its main strength in comparison with other tools such as EndNote and Zotero.

Mendeley can be used to insert reference citations and a bibliography of cited references into Word and Open Office documents and may be of interest to anyone wanting a free reference management program which will create BibTeX citation keys and paste them into a LaTeX document.

This is a basic introductory course and probably will not be very useful to those who are already using the program and who have specific queries about the way it works.

Users who need help with more advanced features can request individual help via the UIS service desk email: service-desk@uis.cam.ac.uk
