Modules is an environment management tool which makes modifying the user's shell environment simple and dynamic.   The advantage of modules primarily comes from the capability to load and unload the environment needed for a given software package, allowing users to quickly and easily start using programs or switch development environments.

In this session we will focus on how modules are organized and how to use modules on CHPC resources.  If preferred, users with CHPC accounts can attend with an active session to run the various module commands as they are discussed.
