The FAIRsFAIR project is pleased to announce that a proof-of-concept training materials browser has been developed for use with the terms4FAIRskills terminology by a team from FAIRsFAIR WP6 including CODATA Senior Research Lead, Laura Molloy.
The purpose of this materials browser is to provide an ‘in use’ proof-of-concept instance of the terms4FAIRskills terminology. The browser has been set up to work with materials, accessed via URL or DOI, that have been previously annotated using the terms4FAIRskills terminology. The browser retrieves teaching materials from an existing collection using keywords derived from the terminology.
The terminology was initiated on the basis of three use cases, all of which aimed to ensure that the terminology is as usable and reusable as possible. Through demonstrating that terms4FAIRskills can be deployed usefully via tools such as this browser, we have illustrated that the terminology can be adopted, developed and extended by future projects, and hence be an example of a sustainable impact from the FAIRsFAIR project.
The browser has been developed using open-source software and is released publicly so that others can extend or develop it. The proof of concept browser was tested online by CINES, with documentation openly available online at https://github.com/FAIRsFAIR/materials-browser-front (GitHub repository); and https://github.com/FAIRsFAIR/materials-browser-api (API).
The browser will be moved to a more sustainable public online location during 2022, whilst the documentation and API will remain in their current GitHub locations.
