In order to provide course material in data handling within particular software environments, four software modules are being written by commissioned authors, based on the needs assessment with the doctoral programmes. These will be stand-alone practical exercises, designed to be printed and worked through in a computer lab or workstation. They are designed to take an hour to an hour and a half to complete.
Below are the outlines of the content being written, as agreed by the project manager following consultation.
All of the practicals have been drafted by the commissioned authors and are currently under review and revisions (May 2011). Current files are on the project wiki.
Early in the project (August-October 2010) meetings between project staff and primary contacts in the doctoral programmes were set up to discuss the content of the units and the software modules. Summary notes are provided.
A project wiki has been set up for informal sharing of resources between the project team and stakeholders. Some of the pages are private, but the main page is open, so as to be open to others working on similar projects (such as fellow JISC MRD projects).
