EIS Training Available Online for New Faculty & Staff

By Cathy Gonzalez, EIS Training, Communication, and Administration Manager 

This is the time of year when departments begin preparing for new faculty to arrive.  In previous years, an introduction to EIS and employee self-service has been led by the EIS Training, Communications, and Administration Manager during departmental orientations held for new faculty. This information is now available as online training and can be accessed at a time that is convenient for the new employee.

By navigating to the EIS Training site (https://eis.unt.edu/training), faculty will find information of particular interest under the topics of:

  • Introduction to EIS
  • EIS Employee Self Service
  • EIS Manager Self Service (appropriate for faculty who supervise others)

Additional resources on the EIS Training site benefiting new faculty are located under the “Additional Resources” section. Selecting the “MyHelp” link provides access to online tutorials for the myUNT Faculty Center accessed via the myUNT portal.  Selecting the link to the “Purchasing and Payment Services” site provides listings of training services for Asset Management, ePro, PCard, and university related travel.

New staff can also benefit from many of the tutorials available on the EIS Training site. Questions regarding EIS online training can be directed to Rebecca.padia@unt.edu.


A note from the Editor: The above article appeared recently in inHouse. According to the author:

This is only the beginning of e-learning topics that will be available. By the end of September, new courses in using query manager in EIS for both Financials & Learning solutions will be available. The EIS Training page mentioned above is a great resource for helpdesk and desktop support staff both in administrative and academic areas. 

All of these e-learning tutorials are being created with an Oracle product named “User Productivity Kit (UPK).”  If you have training that could be delivered in electronic format, my team welcomes you to contact us and discuss your need.  Training that is required for compliance purposes is ideal for UPK as there is a tracking feature that verifies who took the training, how long it took them, and how successful they were in learning the material.
