Below are the scheduled RATS 2.0 Zoom training sessions for the month of December. If you haven’t already, we highly encourage you to attend a training session to learn how to use RATS 2.0. Basic training provides an introduction to RATS 2.0, covering navigation and terminology. Advanced training will provide tips for completing the protocol smartform; attendees will have the opportunity to work on their protocols and ask questions in real time. Please contact RATSHelp@research.ucla.edu to register for an upcoming session:
|Wednesday, December 9 (basic)||3:00 – 4:00 p.m.|
|Friday, December 11 (advanced)||2:00 – 3:00 p.m.|
|Tuesday, December 15 (basic)||1:00 – 2:00 p.m.|
|Thursday, December 17 (advanced)||3:00 – 4:00 p.m.|
If you are unable to attend a training session, we are available for a weekly virtual office hour to provide assistance with questions related to protocols, the ARC review process, and RATS 2.0:
Who: ARC administrative staff
When: Wednesdays, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Where: Zoom meeting ID: 960 3353 9142 (password: 804629)
Attendees at office hours will be helped on a first come, first served basis. When you join the Zoom meeting, you will first be admitted into the waiting room. When it is your turn to be helped, you will be admitted into the meeting room.
Other resources include the RATS 2.0 Help Center, where you can find step-by-step guides on how to navigate and complete tasks in the system, and the ARC News page, where you can find RATS 2.0 Quick Tips. In particular, we encourage you to review the September 4, 2020 Quick Tip, which covers the use of TEMPLATE procedures.
As a reminder, the ARC office will observe UCLA’s 2020-21 Winter Holiday Closure. The ARC office will be closed beginning Saturday, December 19, 2020 and will reopen on Monday, January 4, 2021. If you need assistance with your RATS 2.0 protocol or if have any questions about the new system, please do not hesitate to contact RATSHelp@research.ucla.edu.
