Each capsule comes pre-loaded with standard data analysis programs and software that can be configured by the researcher. Topics include:

  • Introduction to the Data Capsule - why, where, and how
  • Demonstration and hands-on for how to work within the Data Capsule

Attendees should bring their own laptops if they wish to follow along with the hands-on portion.
