Many of you may be aware of the project based at the University of
Oxford to develop on-line tutorials for teaching literature and a
multimedia digital archive (all based around the poetry of the First
World War). The project was funded by the UK's JISC Technologies
Application Programme and a full report is now available on the web,
entitled:
 
'On-Line Tutorials and Digital Archives or "Digitising Wilfred"'
By Stuart Lee and Paul Groves of the University of Oxford.
 
This describes the work involved in generating online resources for
teaching, using the poetry of Wilfrid Owen the example. It covers many
of the issues involved; both technical (use of metadata, digitising
images) and the hard stuff (copyright etc.)
 
It has been described as an honest view of running a project, with no
punches pulled.
