Welcome to the Digital discovery tool pilot! This page contains links to all the guidance and information you need to run a successful project. There’s also a brief page of Guidance for end users of the Discovery tool that you might want to read before you first log in yourself. This is available from all users’ dashboards. Separate documents explain the sign-up process for staff and sign-up process for students.
- Essential information! Your role as a pilot institution, your responsibilities and Jisc’s, including how we will ask you to evaluate and provide feedback on your experience
- Planning to use the Digital discovery tool: your aims, engaging key stakeholders, resourcing the project, deciding who to work with
- Engaging users: encouraging staff and students to use the discovery tool; establishing trust; communicating about the project; supporting users to make good use of their experience; providing development opportunities; following up
- Collecting evaluation data to support the pilot, including slides for running a focus group
- Responding to your data: what data you will receive; how to interpret the data; responding to user requirements; closing the circle
- Frequently asked questions – regularly updated in response to requests from our pilot projects
