Esri offers a variety of learning opportunities to help you integrate new tools and capabilities of ArcGIS 10 into your daily workflows.

Learn Through Hands-on Exercises

Esri instructors will introduce you to many of the new tools and workflows for mapping, editing, analyzing, and managing your GIS data. Hands-on course exercises help you quickly acquire and apply new skills using ArcGIS 10 productivity enhancements.

What's New in ArcGIS 10 introduces you to new interfaces, tools, and workflows that make visualizing, managing, and analyzing your GIS data faster and easier. You'll practice using time-aware and 3D enhancements, as well as learn shortcuts using Python scripts to automate geoprocessing tasks. This two-day (16-hour) course is offered in the interactive, online classroom.

What's New in Editing in ArcGIS 10 immerses you in using streamlined editing workflows. You'll gain experience with the more intuitive, sketch-based editing environment in ArcGIS 10, including the Parcel Editor toolbar, which replaces Cadastral Editor. This one-day (8-hour) course is offered in traditional classrooms and the online classroom.

Is the online classroom for You?

Tight travel budgets keep many GIS professionals from attending training they really need. Esri provides a no-travel-required option for participating in classes led by Esri instructors. The interactive, online classroom replicates the traditional classroom experience without your having to travel.

Students can ask questions, interact with classmates, and even request that the instructor shadow work on their computer while they complete hands-on exercises.

Most Esri instructor-led courses are available in the online classroom. A new two-minute video provides an introduction and gives you a sampling of what the online classroom is like. Watch it at
