Learning Platform (GakuNin LMS)
GakuNin LMS is a learning management system that serves as a platform for sharing learning content within higher education institutions and provides learning materials for research data management, which can be studied at each institution, as well as optional functions for institutional administrators, such as tracking the learning progress of learners at each institution.
In order to effectively promote open science, it is important to develop not only the system but also the human resources involved in research data management. With the cooperation of the Research Data Working Group of the Japan Consortium for Open Access Repositories (JPCOAR), we have created research data management micro-content materials with synthetic audio-videos and comprehension tests based on the slide materials created and published by JPCOAR, and offer various learning courses for supporting staff members and researchers on GakuNin LMS. Learners are issued with a digital badge when they complete the requirements of each course. They can also receive a certificate of completion of the research data management self-learning materials from the National Institute of Informatics.

Learn as Supporting Staff
With "Design and Practice of Research Data Management Services [2022 edition]", you can learn what you need to know about how to support Research Data Management (RDM) in your institution.
Research data has a life cycle, including how it is generated, stored and finally reused. In this course, you will learn about how to design services, support before, during and after research as well as day-to-day support in a way that follows the life cycle of research data.
