There are so many people in IBM and Rational dedicated to helping you be successful with your Rational products.
Rational Software Architect 8.0 contains an outstanding Integrated
Self-Paced Training (ISPT) course within the product itself, which is a
first for our product releases. The Integrated Self-Paced Training
Essentials of modeling with RSA
contains 17 modules (with labs and demos) that introduce the RSA
modeling capabilities. Each module, which is a separate topic in the RSA
IC, provide links to labs, demos, help topics, and a variety of other
related resources. The labs and demos are available from the
. We delivered the first iteration, which is based on the content from
the RD565: Essentials of Modeling with RSA 7.5 course, in version 8.0
and will be updating the information for the v8.0.1 release.
If you have RSA 8.0 installed on your machine, go to Help -> Help Contents, and in the search text window enter
"self-paced". This will bring up the course description, and within
that description, will be the embedded link to the training course
located on the InfoCenter.
We are looking to collect any feedback from our clients who have reviewed and/or used this new learning feature: to gather client feedback, to find out if the current ISPT is helpful, and what other possible ISPTs we should consider preparing.

Darrel Rader, a technical skills and development leader in IBM Rational has built this amazingly short (only 6 slides!) but robust presentation on slideshare.net to help explain what learning circles are:
Now that you know what a learning circle is, did you know we've got five of them currently rolled out (with more to come)? Check out the great learning circles below, choose one, and dive in! These learning circles focus on aspects of the product and application lifecycle:
Because you may not have time to browse all the resources and mingle with other learners in one sitting, learning circles help you create your own personal roadmaps, your pathways through the resources.
You can check off items as you complete them, break away whenever you need to, and easily return anytime. No guesswork; no wasted time trying to recreate where you were.
You can keep your progress confidential, of course. But you also have the option of easily sharing your progress with a mentor, your manager, or your team so you can all progress together.
Don't forget to keep and eye on our developerWorks Learning Circles page to see when new circles are added!
