- E Training: Repository of online training and compliance records
E Training (powered by IU Expand) is a self-service centralized repository of online training, tutorials, and compliance-driven education and awareness. Such a system alleviates the burden imposed on departments by developing and maintaining tutorial and training systems. The goal for E Training is to keep comprehensive records regarding what materials employees have taken and when, enabling them to certify their training and empowering the university to maintain robust compliance records. E Training allows content contributors (those responsible for creating and maintaining training courses) to provide intuitive online-based training and in-person training while collecting data that is necessary for reporting and analyses.

- Use Canvas to build effective content (which can then be made accessible via E Training).
