Discovery Training

The Research Computing team provides free, online training sessions for Discovery users. The team also works to bring in vendors to provide free training, such as Globus, NVIDIA, and STATA.

Use the link below to view our Introduction to Discovery video training module. You’ll need to sign in using your Northeastern username and password to view the video. If you’re new to Discovery, we strongly recommend watching this introductory video to learn about using Discovery.

 

We will continue to add new online training modules through the year. If you are faculty and you are using Discovery with your class and would like us to develop or present a personalized training session for your class, please reach out to us at rchelp@northeastern.edu.

If you are a Discovery user and still need help after viewing the introductory video above, visit our Bookings page and select the appropriate service topic that you need assistance with. You can schedule as many consultations as needed. This is a free service available to Discovery users throughout the year. 

2022 Summer Bootcamp: Virtual Live Training Sessions

Please join us for our Summer Bootcamp Virtual Live Training sessions. All sessions are free to attend, but we do need you to register so that we can send you the link to the session. Please, click here to register. Please note, all sessions will be recorded and you will be able to view them at a later date if needed.

We will be offering a variety of hands-on workshop sessions, as well as an opportunity for attendees to ask questions on any topic during either the student panel or the AMA session.

On Monday, June 6 we will be hosting an introductory session where non-Discovery users can learn about what Discovery is, how to request an account, what support is available, and how to receive support. The Student Panel Discussion will provide an opportunity for current and potential Discovery users to interact with RC’s Graduate Research Assistants (GRA), seek guidance on Discovery best practices, ask questions, and get to know the GRAs in an informal peer-to-peer environment.

Starting Tuesday, June 7, we will have hands-on sessions on a variety of topics, as shown below.
