LoCloud training videos

Last November the LoCloud team were at the Polish National Supercomputing Center (PSNC) in Poznań delivering a training workshop for project partners.  We held the workshop there because PSNC has a professional Television recording studio and our trainers were to become the stars of LoCloud’s training videos!


Each of the presenters at the workshop were asked to deliver their tutorials twice: once for the attendees of the workshop, and then in the television studio where they were recorded for the video. The set-up allowed both the presenter and what he was demonstrating on the computer to be captured.  Following the recording the signals were professionally mixed to produce the final videos.

All of the videos are available on our support portal: http://support.locloud.eu/ and are also included in our online training course.  The videos cover:

  • LoCloud MORe Aggregator
  • LoCloud Collections
  • LoCloud MINT Metadata Mapping Service
  • LoCloud Vocabulary Services
  • LoCloud Geocoding Application
  • LoCloud Historic Place Name Service
  • LoCloud Support Mechanisms

New online training courses from LoCloud

We are happy to inform you that new online training courses are now available 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.
