Abstract: This paper describes the value that information systems faculty and students in classes dealing with database management, data warehousing, decision support systems, and related topics, could derive from the use of the Teradata University Network (TUN), a free comprehensive web-portal. A detailed overview of TUN functionalities and content is given. Freely available resources, such as software tools, large corporate data sets, case studies, and exercises are detailed. Various ways in which the TUN resources can facilitate teaching and learning processes are discussed. The zero-installation, zero-maintenance, zero-cost TUN paradigm is explained.
