An online training course to help disseminate good practice in research data management, developed at the University of Edinburgh, is now free to use by PhD students, early career researchers and digital data users at all UK universities.

The non-credit, free online course is said to have interactive units focused on key concepts of data management including video clips of senior academics talking about data management challenges.  There are also practical exercises in handling data in four software packages widely used by researchers in different fields, which learners can download and work through at their own pace.

The Data Library team at EDINA, a JISC-funded UK national academic data centre based at the University of Edinburgh, produced the materials over the course of the past year as part of the JISC Managing Research Data programme.
