We are happy to announce a SPIDER Overview video!  It is a recording of a webinar for new data contacts that was held in July 2015 and is just over an hour long.  You can “scrub” to topics where you would like more information.  As changes are made to SPIDER we will post updates about the changes here.   We’ll add chapters soon.

NEW  Here is a QUICK video about how to create an online improvement plan in SPIDER.
And this video shows you how to add progress updates to your plan (and get out of feedback loops).


Global Reporting Introduction Video – This is just a quick overview of the main features of this new application released on October 1st.  The whole video is about 15 minutes long and covers a lot but you can stop and pause and take in only what you want.  More training will be provided (face to face, PDFs, peer to peer) in the next few months.   Enjoy!

NOTE – the Global Reporting application requires that the IE9+ Compatibility View (CV) be turned OFF and SPIDER needs it to be BLUE or ON).  Please watch the Compatibility View video below if you are uncertain about this feature.  (DDS users CORE-CT adds ct.gov to a CV list, it must be removed for Global Reporting.)

Compatibility View  (DDS users now with IE11 please click here first.)
