The UserPort Website will contain several levels of information and training to suit the needs of experienced, novice, and new users. A variety of training materials and opportunities to collaborate with other users and with the teams developing and testing the next generation of meteorological polar-orbiting satellites will be available on the site . The presentation will show some of the multimedia training materials, Web-based modules, and collaboration tools that will be integrated into the UserPort site and suggested for future enhancements to the site.
