In 2021, STScI organized and hosted multiple sessions of 10 different community training webinars on various aspects of the JWST data calibration pipeline and on post-pipeline data analysis tools. These sessions, called JWebbinars, provided users with general background and supporting materials such as Jupyter notebooks and overview powerpoint presentations.
JWebbinars were recorded in real time, and useful sections of the longer videos have been excerpted into training tutorials for general use by the community. Access to these materials are provide via 2 primary means: directly through the JWST Observer YouTube channel, or via a JWebbinar host page on the JWST Observer website. Guidance for accessing these materials are provided below.
Video help available through the JWST Observer YouTube channel and linked to JDox pages will continue to be updated over time with content that extends beyond what was covered in the 2021 JWebbinar series.
JWST YouTube channel
The JWST Observer YouTube channel hosts playlists for many different aspects of JWST support, from proposal planning to archived JWST town halls and other relevant materials. The playlist of interest here is the one called JWebbinars. Figure 1 shows the appearance of this playlist on the JWST Observer YouTube home page (you may need to scroll down the page to find the JWebbinars playlist).
The home page format only shows the first handful of available videos. On the bar showing the webinar icons, you can see more entries by scrolling right, using the arrow (in the red circle labeled A in Figure 1). This interface only shows the first 12 videos of a playlist, but if more are available, they are not visible using this interface. In this case, with several videos from each of 11 different JWebbinars, there are more than four dozen videos available. To access a full listing of videos in the playlist, click the PLAY ALL arrow as shown in Figure 1, which will advance to the display shown in Figure 2.
Alternate access to videos and additional training materials
The materials assembled to support each of the JWebbinars have been archived for use in individual self-directed training on the JWST Observer JWebbinar site, under the Materials and Videos tab (see Figures 3 and 4). For convenience, the URL to this webpage is listed for reference on the YouTube channel playlist, as shown by the arrow labeled "C" in Figure 1. These materials include the overview powerpoint presentations that were used in each JWebbinar, any Jupyter notebooks or other support materials that were provided, and links to the videos that were excerpted from each JWebbinar recording. The video links point directly to the same videos hosted on the JWST Observer YouTube channel, but users may find this interface more useful for locating the specific videos and topics of interest to them.
