Learn EASE 5

EASE 5 Second Edition Logo

With the help of the Learn EASE 5 page you will get an easy introduction to our new software. Whether you are a newcomer or an advanced user, there are helpful tips and tricks for everyone.

Work through our Study Guides and Featured Tutorials to realize your first project or dig through our FAQs to get detailed information on topics of choice.
If you are interested in the calculation models and scientific analyses, we have provided you with a selection of publications and papers in the context of EASE. 

We also recommend that you regularly visit our EASE 5 Upgrade History page to ensure that you don't miss any new features. If you would like a more intense introduction to EASE 5, look for trainings, webinars or similar on our Classes List page or contact one of the trainers listed there.
