Mimas, University of Manchester

ESDS International is a UK-wide national data service providing free web-based access to regularly updated international databanks produced by intergovernmental agencies. We also help users locating and acquiring international survey data and provide a helpdesk, support materials and learning and teaching resources, introductory awareness raising courses; and interactive visualisation interfaces.

This presentation will focus on two key learning and teaching resources available through ESDS International. The Countries and Citizens e-learning materials are a comprehensive course on combining international aggregate and survey data. Written by subject specialists, the materials include PowerPoint slides, PDF documents and streamed video files.

The second resource to be described is the e-learning materials based around the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). These materials are currently in development with an anticipated release date later this year. They are intended to provide a useful and effective re-usable e-learning package on the MDGs which will be available to the entire international data community.
