Title Body
Introduction to Digital Humanities

Through a series of videos featuring a variety of voices and perspectives and discussing a range of methodologies and theoretical approaches, this course aims to explore the history, practice and people involved in the evolving, highly diverse, and interdisciplinary field of Digital Humanities.

R for Reproducible Scientific Analysis

An introduction to R for non-programmers using gapminder data

The goal of this lesson is to teach novice programmers to write modular code and best practices for using R for data analysis. R is commonly used in many scientific disciplines for statistical analysis and its array of third-party packages. We find that many scientists who come to Software Carpentry workshops use R and want to learn more. The emphasis of these materials is to give attendees a strong foundation in the fundamentals of R, and to teach best practices for scientific computing: breaking down analyses into modular units, task automation, and encapsulation.

D7.4 How to be FAIR with your data. A teaching and training handbook for higher education institutions

This handbook aims to support higher education institutions with the integration of FAIR-related content in their curricula and teaching. It was written and edited by a group of about 40 collaborators in a series of six book sprint events that took place between 1 and 10 June 2021. The document provides practical material, such as competence profiles, learning outcomes and lesson plans, and supporting information. It incorporates community feedback received during the public consultation which ran from 27 July to 12 September 2021.

Introduction to Research Data Management and Open Research

Introduction to RDM primarily for researchers. Can be seen as primer to all other materials in this catalogue.

This presentation was delivered virtually for Botswana Open University Library on 17th May 2021 as part of a Foundational Data Stewardship Workshop. It is primarily aimed at data stewards but can also be useful to researchers and RDM service providers and should be viewed in conjunction with these two other presentations that were part of the same workshop:

  • DOI:10.5281/zenodo.4665390 (Open and Responsible Research: Roles and Responsibilities for Data Stewards)
  • DOI:10.5281/zenodo.4561728 (Developing and Implementing a Research Data Policy)
Cross sectional and longitudinal survey data

This is an introductory guide to the main types of data with a time element. The guide is a brief overview of key elements in need of consideration when using these types of data. It also covers data availability and some commonly used methods for studying change over time quantitatively. 

What is complex sample design?

This guide covers the basics of sampling as well as other related topics such as clustering, stratification and weighting. 

What is weighting?

This guide explains the main reasons for using weights, how weights work and how to use weighting variables in statistical analysis. 

Title Body

#dariahTeach is a platform for Open Educational Resources (OER) for Digital Arts and Humanities educators and students, but also beyond this aiming at Higher Education across a spectrum of disciplines, at teachers and trainers engaged in the digital transformation of programme content and learning methods. #dariaTeach has two key objectives: sharing and reuse, thus developing a place for people to publish their teaching material and for others to use it in their own teaching.

OpenLearn Create

OpenLearn Create provides a lower cost solution for projects and organisations wanting to deliver Open Educational Resources and free hosting of your course if you don't require additional support. It enables you to personalise material to suit your learners, has a low barrier to collaborative community development of learning materials and a space to experiment with new technologies and ways of working.

OpenLearn Create provides a home for research projects which trial new educational technologies and practice.
