It is impossible to imagine a workplace today without a PC or laptop. Computers have become the tool of choice for practically every activity at work. Employees are expected to be familiar, if not proficient, with Microsoft Office (Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Outlook), and knowing how to use such software is regarded as basic job qualification. Our software training courses help staff build and expand their IT competence. Check out our training videos in this area.

Many WWU employees also need to know how to use Imperia, a web content management system (WCMS), with which the faculties and departments of the University update and maintain their respective websites. This editing software allows users to produce online content without special technical knowledge. Below you can find courses which not only introduce you to the inner workings of Imperia, but also encourage you to apply your knowledge in practice.

Another important software package for employees is SAP, an integrated ERP system, with which the University of Münster manages its personnel/organisational, financial and purchasing operations. You will find various SAP-related courses below, along with further information and helpful links on SAP.

To allow employees to refresh and acquire knowledge regardless of where and when they wish to participate (e.g. at the workplace), the following e-learning sequences, default recommendations and FAQs are available:
