Tags: , , ,

We are excited to announce the launch of our new online teaching resource which introduce data to non-experts via easy-to-use interactive Data Skills Modules. These will give those new to research a solid grounding in the key skills they’ll need to make full use of our rich data resources as they embark on their projects.

Launched as beta versions the Data Skills Modules are aimed at anyone who wants to learn more about using:

  • Survey data
  • Longitudinal data
  • Aggregate data

These introductory level modules are designed for those who want to get to grips with key aspects of the data, showing you how to use the data and offering short instructional videos, interactive quizzes and activities to test your knowledge. You can conduct the modules in your own time, and dip in and out around your schedule. We also use open access software where possible.

We hope these modules will be useful and we encourage feedback and suggestions for enhancements and further modules.
