FOSTER, a project funded by the European Commission from 2014-2016, has been actively identifying and collecting online Open Science training resources and supporting a variety of training programs covering the entire academic ecosystem of stakeholders. These events have in turn added valuable materials to our collection of resources used in the e-learning courses.
During Open Access week 2015 we launch our first set of of e-learning courses now available on the FOSTER portal. The self-learning courses focus on the topics “Open Access in Horizon2020”, “Repository compatibility with Horizon2020” and “Open Science to Research”. The courses have been created by FOSTER partners and offer a variety of options to get to grips with each topic: short video presentations, background reading and self-assessment tests.
Not sure if e-learning is the right method for you? The first two courses will be held as moderated courses in November: 16 to 20 of November for “Open Access in Horizon2020” and 23 to 27 of November for “Repository compatibility with Horizon2020”.
