Title : PATOIS : publications and archives in teaching online information sources

Description :
The PATOIS (Publications and Archives in Teaching: Online Information Sources) project aims to develop four tutorial packs to introduce students to the electronic analysis and use of primary archaeological data resources: monument inventories; excavation archives; research reports; and multi-disciplinary datasets. The tutorials are to be based on multimedia datasets deposited with the Archaeology Data Service (ADS) and available through the JISC Information Environment. The project is due for completion in October 2003.As of March 2003, three of the four tutorial packs are complete: one on using monument inventories; another on excavation archives; and the third concerned with inter-disciplinary resources and the excavation of Christ Church, Spitalfields. Each is designed to take about 45 minutes to complete. The tutorials are interactive, prompting the learner to answer questions as he or she proceeds. Clear, practical advice is provided as to the use of electronic resources in archaeological research. The PATOIS project receives funding from the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC).
