My first task as project officer was to examine the current provision of research seminars in an online format.  This includes courses (such as the Open University’s Open Learn website) as well as seminar podcasts on iTunes U, The History Faculty and by other universities both in the UK and abroad. This report also contains recommendations for the IHR’s final distribution of their research seminars. 

See here for the final report:

Research Seminar provision scoping report (May 2010)

In other news we had a fantastic response to our survey (301 replies).  I am currently shifting through the masses of data to write up a report which we shall post in due course.  This is a job that I am enjoying very much.  There are a variety of views and opinions expressed in the results but overall there is an overwhelming positive response to the IHR podcasting the research seminars.

More updates soon!
