e-learning with Ikon Science

Ikon Science e-learning

Ikon Science e-learning is free for active RokDoc licence holders and those evaluating RokDoc.

Our e-learning program allows you to hone your skills and become a certified RokDoc user wherever you are in the world. It provides you with access to Ikon Science tried and tested e-courses, so you can learn RokDoc at a time and speed that works for you! 

Pick from these e-courses - read summaries and watch taster videos below 

  • RokDoc Rock Physics (the e-learning equivalent of the onsite RokDoc 1D2D Introduction onsite course)
  • RokDoc Reservoir Characterisation (the e-learning equivalent of RokDoc 3D Reservoir Characterisation onsite course)
  • RokDoc Anisotropy - an e-learning exclusive!
  • RokDoc VSP - an e-learning exclusive!
  • RokDoc SDC & Inversion coming soon(the e-learning equivalent of RokDoc Seismic Data Conditioning & AVO Inversion onsite course)

More e-courses will be added regularly, so make sure you follow us on social media or sign up to our newsletter to ensure you don't miss a new arrival.

To get e-learning access, simply click on the "Request access to e-learning" green button below, complete the form, and press send!

Once on-boarded, you will have the free use of the e-course/s, material, data and other Ikon Science videos for 60 days (or if you are evaluating the software, the length of your software evaluation).

The lessons in the e-courses are locked as standard, this is because you need to complete them in a set order to make sure you get the most from your training. However, if you think you are a quite a proficient RokDoc user, and just need some refreshing, you can request an open course (where all lessons are available at the same time), please note this preference in the application form comments box.

After the free period (unless otherwise agreed), your access to e-learning will end. You will not automatically be enrolled onto paid access after this date, your account will just be deactivated.

If you would like e-learning access after your free period, this will be charged at $500 for another 60 days. 

A few things...

  • When approved, an individual user gets free e-learning access for 60 days (date starting from when the Ikon Science e-learning welcome email is sent), or lasting the length of the software evaluation period. 
  • As standard, a maximum of five users (per client site) can be active on the Ikon Science e-learning platform at any one time.
  • Only clients with active RokDoc licences, or those evaluating RokDoc are eligible for e-learning (as RokDoc is needed for Ikon Science e-learning).
  • The user can sign up to multiple e-courses, but needs to have access to the necessary RokDoc licences applicable to these e-course/s (see below).  
  • If a user requests access to one or more e-courses, but fails to complete each such e-courses within the relevant 60 day period, free access will not be provided again within the same calendar year. As such, we recommend that users only apply for e-course/s they feel confident they can complete within the 60 day period. The user can apply at a later date for free e-learning access to other e-courses, but as standard free access will not be given to repeat an e-course.
  • We do not provide RokDoc licences as part of the e-learning package. Clients are expected to already have access to RokDoc to follow e-learning.
  • On successful completion of an e-course, Ikon Science will provide an e-learning certificate.
  • Applying via the online booking form constitutes a request to access e-learning and is subject to Ikon Science's acceptance of such request by email confirmation of registration. Ikon Science may withhold its acceptance at its absolute discretion. 
  • e-learning places are subject to availability.

e-learning FAQs

Some of the questions frequently asked about e-learning

  1. Does the rock physics e-learning course come with training data?
  2. Why are the lessons locked and can I unlock them?

RokDoc Rock Physics e-course

The RokDoc Rock Physics e-learning course is intended for new and intermediate users who require an introduction to RokDoc, and the rock physics theories behind the software.

Delegates will follow a series of high quality videos to be guided through a typical RokDoc workflow, comprising of data loading and QC, predicting missing data with calibrated rock physics models, blocky modelling, log-based rock physics analysis and 2D forward modelling. This course also covers Gassmann dry rock modelling, elastic log analysis, cross-plotting and well ties. Further analysis is then performed in RokDoc 2D to determine the effects of seismic tuning, fluid substitutions, porosity perturbation and noise.

A taster of the RokDoc Reservoir Characterisation e-course

The RokDoc Reservoir Characterisation e-learning course is aimed at intermediate RokDoc users who require an introduction to Rock Physics Model Templates and RokDoc Reservoir Characterisation.  

This e-learning video-based course takes students through a series of workflows to illustrate the predictive power of rock physics models, before progressing onto RokDoc Reservoir Characterisation to learn about modelling lithologies and fluids, manipulating seismic inversion volumes, creating elastic and geological property volumes and exporting to SEG-Y.

RokDoc licence required: Reservoir Characterisation

RokDoc Anisotropy e-course

The anisotropy e-learning course focuses on predicting, correcting and exploiting the effects of layering and fracturing on the elastic properties of rocks.

The course begins with an overview of the theory and its applications in rock physics workflows, followed by several exercises, covering blocky modelling, well log and 2D applications, and Thomsen Parameter estimation from multiple wells.

This e-course covers the functionality accessed from the Anisotropy add-on for the RokDoc Rock Physics base module.

RokDoc licence required: Anisotropy

RokDoc VSP e-course

The VSP e-learning course focusses on VSP processing and interpretation, the derivation of Thomsen parameters, and fracture analysis. The workflows include a corridor stack, multi-component walk-away VSP analysis, and the identification and interpretation of shear-wave splitting in a fractured interval.

This e-course covers the functionality accessed from the VSP add-on for the RokDoc Rock Physics base module.
