How to learn how to use Atlas ?
Due to insufficient resources to send training missions to all Country Offices UNDP opted for a training strategy mainly focussed on self-learning over the Web.
To benefit from UNDP learning resources on line (LMS) personnel working for UNDP need to first be given undp.org email address
(former RIM now with LRC based at Regional Centre in Johannesburg moving to LRC Unit in Bangkok in January 2007))
For CD ROMs of OnDemand see name to contact given earlier.
Reviewing MPN network queries, answers and discussions can be an important means of learning about Atlas modules.
All Programme Officers should register for the MPN-Project, Partnerships Net and Evaluation networks. Programme Associates should be on MPN-Project & MPN-Finance (where programme finance Atlas issues should be treated).
“zero Tier/level Help Desk” - often someone in the CO such as a “super-user” for particular Atlas module has answer – keep it going ! Or if it was allowed to disappear bring it back or equivalent. Atlas Roll out of new functionality continues.
2. “Buddysystem” for staff doing same Atlas roles within country offices – important for all staff to know who the “expert” on an Atlas area in the office. Offices should have at least 2 “experts” in each area.
4. MPN-project network (formerly ps.pm-net)
