    Who are these learning labs for?

    These bookable sessions are aimed at staff who currently use PIP to view student and course information and along with staff who currently use eCSIS to make changes to student records.

    In order that we can ensure the right member of staff is available for you to consult with during the learning lab, and to enable us to bring along the right materials, please state in the comments field the specific task you require support with. If you do not do this your booking will not be confirmed.

    Please note: these sessions are intended as follow-up support for staff who have already attended training. You must have attended a training session before booking onto a learning lab. These sessions are not intended as a replacement for training but rather as a way of following up on specific areas of the training that you need to go into more detail on in order to complete your role.

    Please select a 15 minute slot (you can book up to a maximum of 3 slots at a time) on one of the dates below.

    Aim: to provide staff with an initial introduction to the Banner Student Record System (SRS), how to navigate and things to be aware of when using the system.

    Who is this training for?

    This training is specific to the Administrative interface in Banner. It is aimed at staff who manage records as part of their role (i.e if you use eCSIS currently you will use this interface of the system).

     

    If you are only using PIP at present, then this training might not be relevant to your role. Please speak to your line manager if you are unsure whether or not you require training in this area of the Student Records System.

    What will these sessions cover?

    These sessions provide information on the general use of the administrative interface of the system, basic navigation and some of the key functionality including:

    • What is Banner?
    • Logging in to the system
    • Finding general person information
    • Menu Options

    At the end of this session you will have a general understanding of how to use the system, in preparation for more comprehensive training.

    Dates for training on the specific functionality of Banner related to your role will be communicated out through your team shortly.

    Please note: some of the sessions include hands-on training (held in computer rooms), whilst others are demonstrations only (held in regular teaching rooms). At the same time you are welcome to bring your work laptop/chromebook with you to the Demo sessions if you want to replicate the steps demonstrated on the main screen on your computer.
