Abstract [en]

The objective of this document is to provide background information relating to the production of training material and the training page hosted as part of the PERICLES website. The rationale behind this process is also described and justified.

The production of the training material is based on aligning the outputs of the project’s research with a user-friendly design. This process helps to determine the topics and types of material to be created and collected that will most efficiently and appropriately serve the needs and abilities of the target groups. This involves an analysis of the target group that might be both interested in and have the necessary background to understand the research topics and tools developed and examined during the project. Other considerations include the way the material could be used and how the use can be supported through the look and feel of the material.

The design of our modular training page is based on a format that has been proven successful in other settings (e.g. at the Swedish National Agency for Education). Within this online training package each module is self-explanatory and can be used without the need for additional input or explanation from the content authors. The information provided within each module helps the user to identify whether the module and its contents are of relevance. The underlying structure also helps the authors to cover the topics that need to be covered and provide the content in a way that will fit with the pedagogical ideas embedded in the design of the package.

The choice of material and format used in the training material is strongly linked to the nature of the topic, be it demonstrations, screencasts and user guidelines for tools, presentations and short texts for more overview and introductory material, or articles and videos for more theoretical topics requiring a more descriptive, narrative type of communication.

The creation of modules is a work-in-progress, as many of the results are still to be finalised. Currently, we have completed two modules that are representative of the research and development outcomes.

- “Dynamics of knowledge organisation” studies the involvement and application of semantics in Digital Preservation and focuses on two different but potentially interrelated approaches: (a) vectors, matrices, and vector fields; (b) graph-based structures and ontologies. This module clearly belongs in the category of theoretical research; therefore, a lot of effort has been made to communicate this in an attractive way, with webcast seminars for example.

- “Sheer curation” is a good example of a technical development outcome. The module provides the context that leads to demonstrating the tools (PET and PeriCAT). This context has been presented in a way that can be used without the tools, as it provides high-level introductions to related topics, state of the art in the related research and practice, and overviews of current technologies etc.

Other modules are in development on topics including Appraisal; Digital Ecosystem Models; Recent Developments in the Conservation of Digital Art; Policies & Policy Creation and management using the Policy Editor; Earth and Space Data for the Future; and Modelling and Planning Repository systems.

This collection of modules forms a repository of useful learning material for students and trainers and fosters long-term use of PERICLES results for training purposes in a self-learning environment. In parallel to this, other suitable materials are presented in tutorials and in current and upcoming academic programmes as exemplified below.
