Some more in-depth courses were provided to the students at the NOT, both about general astronomical subjects (e.g., ``How to use IRAF'', ``CCD data reduction'', and ``Spectroscopic data reduction''), but also things related to operations (e.g., ``The NOT Observing System and its Sequencer Commands'' and ``Introduction to CCDs''). We are discussing to what extent there are things related to the operations of the telescope that beyond the training at the telescope would be good to be taught through specific presentations/courses. We also started to collect the material presented in the different courses on our internal web for future reference.
We have a general web page with guide lines for new students outlining what they need to know and what there normal tasks are. With input from the staff and students these pages have been improved and updated.
