New online training courses from LoCloud
These courses are part of our ongoing commitment to assisting smaller cultural heritage institutions in adding setting up their digital repositories, adding their content to Europeana and using LoCloud’s technologies. They aim to offer participants a rich, well-structured means of familiarizing themselves with the various tools and services.
In total three courses are available via LoCloud’s E-Learning Portal. The courses are all free to use but we ask users to register to take part in the self assessment quizzes and interactive elements. The courses are:
LoCloud services and tools: This course focusses on the software tools and micro-services that the project has developed with the aim of simplifying the process of providing content to Europeana including LoCloud Collections, MINT, MORe, Vocabulary management and the enrichment microservices.
Cooperaton with Europeana: This course is for those who want to prepare their existing repository for cooperation with Europeana, and is an updated version of a course originally produced for the AccessIT/AccessITPlus projects.
Digital repositories for small memory institutions: This course covers digitisation activities for small memory institution including how to prepare content for publication on-line and how to describe digital objects in metadata.
Each of the courses is divided into topics with self-assessment quizzes for users to test their understanding of what they have learnt as they work through. The courses are currently available in English.
The training courses are part of the LoCloud Support Portal which includes user and technical documentation, a question and answer forum, and a set of training videos.
