This section contains the training materials available for the iStar system.

The materials are grouped according to type of information (e.g., user manuals, web-based tutorials...) and not designated by relevant audience. This page serves as an index of all available materials.

iStar Training site (Sandbox)

To assist in the training of new users of the iStar system, a duplicate "sandbox" site has been prepared.  This second site is not an official site and may be used for demonstration or trial purposes.  Once you have obtained your official iStar account, you are also allowed to log in to the training or "sandbox" site.

Experiment within the "sandbox" site as much as you like.  However, please note that the "sandbox", or training site is not the official iStar site. Any studies or submission prepared on the training site will not be accepted and cannot be moved to the official site.  In addition, the training site will periodically be cleaned, and practice studies may be erased.

User Manuals

User manuals are provided for the main user roles assigned in the iStar system. User guides for other iStar roles will be developed soon. You can download Adobe Reader for free here.
