Abstract

In this paper we provide arguments as to why the tools and resources that ReDReSS offers provide an effective and ultimately unique online learning environment for social science researchers. Learning content is provided in a variety of formats including audio-visual recordings of lectures and workshops. This is complemented by a range of classification and search tools to facilitate the construction of 'learning ladders' for self motivated researchers wishing to acquire new skills. Web 2.0 style collaboration tools are included to give a rich experience and to stimulate community engagement. Statistics indicate the popularity of the resources offered by the project, and demonstrate the importance of the ReDReSS project and the services and resources it has to offer.
