LinkedIn Learning offers industry-leading content and courses taught by expert instructors in leadership, project management, graphic design, photography, software development, and more. Courses range from beginner to advanced and can be taken to obtain a professional certificate or learn more about a personal hobby.
University Software Portal
The Rutgers University Software Portal offers various software for purchase or download based on current licensing agreements. You need to be an active faculty, staff or student member of the University to gain access to the portal
Amarel Computing Environment
Amarel is a shared community-owned advanced computing environment available to any investigator or student with projects requiring research computing resources. The model is distinguished by a set of uniform technical and policy elements that, while sufficiently flexible to support the degree of heterogeneity inherent in the Rutgers environment, affords a level of standardization that greatly simplifies management procedures, troubleshooting, and provides a more seamless user experience. The Amarel cluster replaced apps.rutgers.edu, which was decommissioned in 2019.
The Language Center
With a full and part-time professional and technical staff, they provide technology training, curriculum development and language coordination assistance, TA / PTL training, and a variety of other programs, services and facilities to support world language study at Rutgers-New Brunswick.
