1. New TeSS Features
Administration feature - Displays whether materials are no longer available or a scraper hasn’t run
Idea: to send the contact for the provider an e-mail about broken link, rather that have curator go over the information regularly.
Also to have ‘person responsible’ for each content stream.
New events metadata - iAnn manual registration was bioevents portal. Moving to TeSS but metadata needed to be updated before can sync. This is almost finished bar ensuring our scrapers work with new metadata
Also Improved geolocation
Improved date input
Phase 1 of Bio.tools integration complete.
Can search the bio.tools database for tools related to a training material
Can then attach this tool to the material
Next steps include
Looking to create a mapping between training and tools
Allowing the tools registry to query all materials based on tool (almost complete)
Looking at the data to see what else can be done - e.g discover pipelines based off commonly seen collections of tools within material
2. Content Providers
Document being developed by the Hub to motivate and guide implementation
Think about how to formally mandate ELIXIR event / material creators to register in TeSS - be it manually or structuring their data to be included.
Ongoing content feeds
IFB (Institut Français de Bioinformatique)
EBI train online
UK Doctoral Training Centres
Spanish node to discuss this shortly
For profit companies -
distinction made between events that are for-profit and not already made in TeSS.
Consider charging for advertisement for for-profits.
From EBI: regarding eLearning - whether there is going to be a separate set of online courses (that are not simply course materials) that people can search. EBI interest here is obviously Train online, which currently sits in the materials section - which they are not..
Events and materials are currently distinguished by its temporality - an event happens between one date and another and a material is always accessible. It would be good to add an attribute separating materials into whether something is considered a course or a material so the users can find what’s appropriate for them. We need to consider what that dividing line is.
Add Collaborators feature
Hide complexity - display a nice abstract view that can display more later
EMBER workflow has been partially implemented
Integration from a user perspective implementation study
Prioritized by training platform
Awaiting prioritization from tools platform
Playing round with the idea of CWL imports to training workflows
Software demo will be given at NETTAB
Currently not done. Relying on content providers to inform us when something is wrong
New feature to identify problem services
Need to expand curator community
Will plan e-mail notifications and training co-ordinator account roles
