Tutorials and Training
Need to learn ArcGIS?
You can either a) take a instructor-led course or b) learn on your own through web-courses and tutorial books.
For option a:
1. Check out the next GIS course offered at Oberlin or find a course through your local college or university
2. Pay >$1000 to ESRI and take one of their instructor-led courses
For option b:
2. Find a tutorial book and work your way through ArcGIS. Look on OhioLink for books to rent. The Geology Department currently owns the following GIS tutorial books: Gorr and Kurland's GIS Tutorial 1: Basic Workbook (c. 2011), Ormsby et al's Getting to know ArcGIS Desktop (c. 2010), and Price's Mastering ArcGIS (c. 2010).
Esri also has a guide to selecting which method of training would be best for you
