Course description
This course provides in-depth instruction on Association and Social Network Analysis. The first part of this course explains the purpose and process of association analysis and how to create an association matrix. Students will also learn how to build and present a link chart using standard symbols and terms. The second part of this course explains what social network analysis is with focus on types of centrality, network structure, and the application of the Target Centric approach. 

Key concepts covered in this course include:
     • Basic knowledge of link and association analysis
     • Process of social network analysis
     • Visual mapping and mathematical components

Note: Some of the concepts covered in ILA are also covered in NW3C’s 4-day FIAT class; therefore, some of the material in ILA can be duplicative for prior FIAT students.

Cancellation
All classes are subject to cancellation up to 45 days before the start of class if the minimum class registration threshold is not met.


  Lab Requirements

Live Online Training Computer Hardware Mandatory Requirements

Live online classes are a convenient way to take our traditional in-person, instructor-led training from your own computer. When attending these courses, you will receive the same presentations and hands-on practical exercises that you would in our in-person classes. As such, having proper computer hardware to complete the course is a must.

If your computer hardware does not meet the mandatory requirements listed below, your experience in taking the class will be less than ideal and may also impact other students while the instructors take time to troubleshoot hardware and software problems.

Mandatory Operating System Requirements
• Your computer must be running Microsoft Windows 10 or macOS v10.12 or later.
• Make sure your operating system is fully updated prior to class.
Smartphones and tablets are prohibited.

Mandatory Hardware Requirements
Dual monitors. You will need one monitor to join the online classroom, view presentations, see the instructor’s shared screen, and interact with the instructor(s). The second monitor is needed to complete the hands-on practical exercises. Not being able to view the instructor’s shared-screen and performing the practical exercises on a second monitor simultaneously will make it difficult, if not impossible to successfully complete the exercises. Trying to use one large screen monitor, running the two different interfaces split screen, will NOT work.
• Multiple computers can also work as a substitute to having multiple monitors.
• A hard-wired, high-speed Internet connection is highly recommended. A wireless Internet connection may be sufficient; however, a wired connection will improve latency and buffering, and will also provide better connection speeds and stability overall.
Microphone and speakers. This is an interactive, live-training class and a microphone is required to interact with the instructor(s), ask questions, give answers, and provide insights to help enhance the overall class experience. We recommend a headset, headphones, or earbuds to eliminate feedback and echo when using your microphone.

Please have the following software installed prior to class:
• Download and install the Google Chrome web browser, if you do not already have it installed. It is the recommended web browser to launch our virtual lab environment.
• Download and install the Webex Chrome Extension, which is required to launch our live online training environment, Webex Training Center, and works hand-in-hand with the Webex Meetings application.

If you have any questions regarding the mandatory minimum hardware requirements, please contact liveonline@nw3c.org.
