Research Data Management and Sharing MOOC

In addition to MANTRA, the Research Data Management and Sharing MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is a free Coursera course created by the Universities of Edinburgh and North Carolina.

This five-week course is designed to reach learners across disciplines and continents, and provides training on data management following the key stages of any research project. These are:

  • Understanding Research Data
  • Data Management Planning
  • Working with Data
  • Sharing Data
  • Archiving Data

The course uses the Coursera on-demand format to provide short, video-based lessons and assessments across a five-week period, but learners can proceed at their own pace. Although no formal credit is assigned for the MOOC, Statements of Accomplishment will be available to any learner who completes a course for a small fee (financial aid available).
