Learning and Training Resources

This section contains a collection of open educational resources demonstrating the use of CLARIN language resources and central services in the curricula of SSH-related disciplines. We distinguish between two main resource types:

1. Full courses and training modules published online, which can be used for self-study to acquire new skills.

2. Training and course materials, which have been archived in a repository under an open licence to be downloaded and reused by others to design new courses or training workshops.

Each entry is described with a consistent set of metadata based on the RDA Minimal Metadata for Learning Resources, including educators' experience with using the infrastructure in teaching and training.

The resources have also been included in the SSH Training Discovery Toolkit, developed in the SSH Open Cloud project to improve the discoverability of training and learning resources. All resources are released under a Creative Common Licence.

If you would like to receive updates about new learning and training resources, please subscribe to our dedicated mailing list for trainers.

To submit a new resource, please use the application form from the Teaching CLARIN Call page.

Other Educational Resources

CLARIN Computational Notebooks

Computational notebooks (in short notebooks) provide a popular environment for literate programming, especially in education contexts. This also applies to Natural Language Processing ( ). Here is a first overview of how Notebooks have been integrated into CLARIN infrastructure for research and educational purposes. 

Writer's Toolbox

ZWAW Applied Linguistics

Keywords: professional writing, research notes, communication

If you are searching for open educational resources on other topics, please consult the SSH Open Marketplace, a discovery platform for tools, services, training materials, datasets, publications and workflows. The marketplace (semi)-automatically harvests the metadata of training materials from three infrastructures: CESSDA, CLARIN and DARIAH.
For learning resources in Arts and (Digital) Humanities, see the resources on DARIAH-CAMPUS and DARIAH-TEACH
If you are a student seeking a new course or programme in Digital Humanities in Europe or beyond, please browse the Digital Humanities Course Registry. Please note that the course registry does not host open educational resources but contains metadata about digital humanities programmes offered by universities, which require enrollment.
