The Intro and Intermediate (UCINET) courses use the UCINET software package, (along with Excel) while the Intermediate (R) and Stochastic courses use R.  It is strongly recommended that you install these before starting the workshop as all of the courses are hands-on and if you can't get the software to run, you will miss out.

Important note about dual screens:  Hands-on learning of software can be tricky online (in our case, using Zoom). In one window, you will have the instructor typing and clicking on menus. In other windows, you will be interacting with the software on your machine. If you don't have two screens or one really wide one, this becomes very difficult. We strongly recommend having two screens, which could be two monitors on one computer, or two computers, or a computer and a tablet, etc. 


The UCINET package (which includes NetDraw) runs on Windows only. If you have a Mac, you must install a Windows emulator such as Parallels. In the past, people could also run UCINET on WINE, but that is no longer true.

Or, use a PC for this workshop. 

BTW,  the UCINET package is not free, but it does run for 90 days without a registration code, so there is no need to buy it for the workshop.
