1. 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.

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
