Online Scholarly Collaboration
Welcome to the Online scholarly collaboration course of the University Library (UL) of the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Online scholarly collaboration in a collaboratory or virtual research environment (VRE) is a relatively new way of working in the social sciences and humanities. Therefore, there are still a large number of questions about how these forms of online communication and collaboration influence the nature of research. The main 'obstacles' to the implementation of smart software to support research and teaching seem not to be technological, but social.
After going through the Online scholarly collaboration course, you will be able to
get an impression of the diverse and fast-growing field of collaboratory projects and environments, especially in the social sciences and humanities;
explain how online collaboration tools can be integrated in the research process;
create your own collaborative environment;
identify failure and success factors, especially organizational and social ones;
know when and how to create a Team Site or subsite (using SharePoint);
work together in writing a document (using SharePoint);
share references in RefWorks.
This course is a part of the Information literacy modular training method.
