This week we ran the last session in our series The Researcher Online, and looked at ways in which you can create digital content, but also the hows and whys of sharing that online, as well as considering copyright and copyleft issues. Whether it’s creating a youtube video for public engagement, or simply making your teaching materials more widely available (as I’m doing here!), there are many ways in which digital technologies can help you make your work more widely visible. This session aimed to give you a starting point to help you feel that you can make and share digital content yourself.
There is now a website to accompany the session, The Researcher Online, on which I’m collecting the tools, software and platforms you can use (with a focus on those which are easy to use and free). This is a work in progress, and I’ll add more over time!
In the spirit of the session, I’ve made both the slides and handouts available online too.
