The University has a subscription to Lynda.com, an online skills development service with a library of video courses and online training materials for a large number of software packages, digital tools and programming languages. Members of the University can access it for free through MyEd.
#dariahTeach is an open source, multilingual, community-driven platform for high quality teaching and training materials for the digital arts and humanities. It was launched on 23 March 2017 with beta content.
All modules will go through a rigorous post-launch review process. If you would like to form part of a Trusted User Group to improve our courses/workshops, please email #dariahTeach AT gmail.com with the subject line ‘Trusted User Group’ and let us know which course you would be interested in testing.
In the coming months we will be opening the platform for new content. Join us by contributing a course, a workshop, or a video!
