Dear Colleagues

In total, 70 colleagues from SA have subscribed to this free online course, which started yesterday! Our first assignment is a quiz of 15 questions, which has to be completed by 7 March, following reading the material and watching the video. LIASA Academy will soon also fully implement Moodle for training, and while enrolled for this RDM course, you will not only learn about RDM, but you will also get the opportunity to experience e-learning MOOC s(Massive Open Online Course). We hope to - in future - present many similar courses via LIASA Academy.

Hope you enjoy it! It requires a lot of self-discipline and determination, but you can learn in your own time at your own pace. Definitely the future - more than ever!

Kind regards



This course will provide learners with an introduction to research data management and sharing. After completing this course, learners will understand the diversity of data and their management needs across the research data lifecycle, be able to identify the components of good data management plans, and be familiar with best practices for working with data including the organization, documentation, and storage and security of data. Learners will also understand the impetus and importance of archiving and sharing data as well as how to assess the trustworthiness of repositories.

Kind regards
