Start Here: GAIL Courses
If you have been asked to get access to GAIL (UGA’s alumni and donor information database) then in addition to submitting the correct paperwork you’ll also need to sign up for a GAIL access course. Both options below will require you to complete interactive training materials in Flipgrid after you register for class.
Advanced GAIL Courses
After GAIL 101 All Users, you can choose to specialize in a specific area of GAIL by working with someone on the Client Services Team to accomplish your #GAILgoals! Whether you choose a stewardship, fundraising, events, or marketing course depends upon what your job responsibilities are. There’s a lot to learn when it comes to GAIL, but don’t panic — our courses incorporate learning in Flipgrid that you can take at your own pace along with in-class sessions.
Wait, what is a Flipgrid?
With the coronavirus pandemic increasing the need for remote work, the Client Services team is adapting our conventional training. Flipgrid is a website that allows us to create Grids to facilitate video Responses. Each grid is like a message board where we will demonstrate some #GAILskills and pose questions about what you learned. This allows you to the get the most out of learning, all at your own pace, before you even begin an in-class session!
