Webinar Archives

We record all of our online webinars, for viewing after the event.
 

Creating a Graph

We demonstrate the graphing functionality and options within ARM.

Data Calculations in ARM

Summarize recorded data with transformations and ARM Action Codes. User formulas, control corrections, subsample calculations, and rating scales are all discussed and demonstrated.

Working with Weather Data

Learn how to import weather data from your own weather station .csv file, and then visualize daily weather totals using the Weather Graph tool.

ARM & Statistics: a webinar series (2021)

One of the most commonly-requested training topics, we explore the basics of research statistics in
relation to ARM software. (repeat of 2020 series)
 

Uniformity Simulations to Evaluate Trial Randomization Quality

Peter (our statistician) shows how select block size affects trial performance (under simulation), and makes those recommendations a little more rigorous, less 'ad hoc'.

Summary across Trials: The Basics

Learn the basics of Summary across Trials (ST) add-in, to summarize multiple trials across years or locations.

Trial Map Randomization

We show how to set the shape and numbering of the Trial Map, manually adjust the layout via drag-and-drop, and show the Quality features for optimizing the randomization.

Labels and Barcodes in ARM

Learn how to generate labels with ARM software. ARM has built-in labels for container, plot, seed packet and harvest labels, which can contain barcodes and subsamples. We also demonstrate how to create your own custom labels!

Collect Data with TDCx

Learn the ins and outs of using the Tablet Data Collector (TDCx) add-in to enter assessment data while in the field, as well as taking pictures, recording GPS coordinates, and reviewing data.
 

ARM Primer: 2021

Prepare for the upcoming research season with ARM webinars! This series focuses on starting the year off on the right foot with ARM. With shortcuts and new features and maybe some new-to-you capabilities, there's something for ARM users of all experience levels!
 

ARM: Year-End Review

As the research season winds down, take advantage of your experience in ARM over the last few months. We focus on year-end tasks that will get you and your team primed to hit the ground running next season!
 

Graphing - Tips for ARM 2020.5 version

We updated the graph control to use a new utility in 2020.5. Most functionality is the same, but some differences in how options are rendered exist. We discuss the changes and demonstrate tips with the new tool!
 

Advanced Stats in ARM: Hierarchical Models

Multi-factor designs like factorial and split plot, as well as repeated measure analysis and lattices, are investigated.
 

ARM & Statistics: a webinar series

One of the most commonly-requested training topics, we explore the basics of research statistics in
relation to ARM software.
