About Course

SmartPLS 3 is a software to test path modeling of a research model that contains various variables. The Data Analysis Using SmartPLS 3 course introduces participants to the key skills required to conduct scholarly research. This one and half hours course provides extensive, detailed knowledge about basic research modeling for management and also focuses on social science research. 

In addition, the course Data Analysis Using SmartPLS 3 for Beginners includes details of using SmartPLS 3.0 software and how to interpret the extensive outputted information. Participants learn the mechanics of performing a variety of tasks associated with PLS path modeling “from the ground up”.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to understand the following topics –

  1. What is PLS?
  2. Why PLS?
  3. Model Development
  4. Restructuring Method
  5. Data Preparation
  6. SmartPLS3 Execution
  7. Measurement Model
  8. Structural Model

Moreover, they are provided with comprehensive examples of how to model, interpret, and report various PLS path modeling scenarios estimated using SmartPLS 3.0 software. The software is not only very easy to use but also has an intuitive graphical user interface. Since SmartPLS is programmed in Java, it can be executed and run on different computer operating systems such as Windows and Mac.
