On-Line Training

Stata NetCourses  and NetCourseNowTM

Stata now offers on-line training which can be done from the comfort of your own home.

NetCourses are not conducted in real time, so you are not required to be online participating at any specific time. Instead, lectures are posted every Friday (U.S. time), and participants can view/work on course materials at their convenience anytime thereafter. After reading the lecture, participants can post questions and comments to the course discussion area. Dedicated course leaders respond to the questions and comments on Tuesday and Thursday. The other participants are encouraged to respond to the questions or comments, as well. After the last lecture, discussion continues for a few weeks until the course concludes.

NetCourseNow allows you to choose the time and set the pace of your NetCourse, still providing a personal NetCourse instructor. With NetCourseNow, all lectures will be posted at once, and you will be given the email address of your personal NetCourse instructor to whom you can email questions about the lectures.
