A year of intensive training in numbers
Our Institute creates complex information systems which process big data. We do our best to ensure the systems are as intuitive and user-friendly as possible but the scale and complexity of issues treated there often require a deeper insight. That is why we offer training courses for our users so they could better operate the systems created at the National Information Processing Institute.
The last year was highly intensive in terms of training, we trained in bigger and smaller Polish cities where universities are based – until the first half of March the training sessions were held in as many as 34 cities, in certain cities even several times.
The team responsible for training is currently composed of five women – expert trainers who know every functionality of our systems. Since 2018 they have already conducted 101 training sessions, including 65 on the JSA system and 36 on the ZSUN/OSF system operation. The JSA is the Single Anti-plagiarism System which – since the beginning of 2019 – is the only approved system where universities check bachelor’s and master’s theses for plagiarism. Whereas the ZSUN/OSF system is used for registering and servicing of grant applications received by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the National Science Centre, and the National Centre for Research and Development. If we exclude public holidays – it turns out that our trainers were conducting trainings every second day. The trainings are very well evaluated and are very popular – in the last year 8,784 university employees completed them which means that on average over 80 people took part in one training session.
