U of Edinburgh Renews Research Data MANTRA
Edinburgh University Data Library has announced that Research Data MANTRA, the free online course designed for researchers or others planning to manage digital data as part of the research process has been refreshed.
Shortlisted by the Research Information Literacy and Digital Scholarship (RILADS) project (http://rilads.wordpress.com/) as one of 15 good practice examples designed to enhance information literacy skills MANTRA has been upgraded to Version 2 of Xerte Online Toolkits, the e-learning development environment used to create the MANTRA learning materials.
This has the ability to deliver content using HTML5 rather than the Flash Player. This has a number of advantages in that you can deliver content to a much wider range of devices, and specifically you can deliver content to devices that do not support Flash.
The new MANTRA also highlights aspects of the learning materials that may be of particular interest to a range of discreet personas including research students, career researchers, and senior academics.
