Research Data MANTRA (http://datalib.edina.ac.uk/mantra/) , the free online course hosted at Edinburgh University Data Library and designed for researchers or others planning to manage digital data as part of the research process has been refreshed!
Shortlisted recently 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 allows delivery of the MANTRA units to a much wider range of devices using HTML5 rather than Flash.
The new MANTRA also highlights the utility of the learning materials for 4 discreet personas:
- Research student
- Career researcher
- Senior academic
- Information professional
We hope you enjoy the new MANTRA experience. Please get in contact with us at the Data Library with your comments or suggestions.
