GTN Video Library 2.0: 107 hours of learning across 154 videos


Posted on: 14 June 2024 purlPURL:

Many GTN tutorials already have recordings. These recordings were made by members of the community for a variety of (online) training events. Up until now, this video library were part of the Gallantries Project. We have now integrated this video library directly into the GTN, and made it even easier to add video recordings to GTN tutorials or slide decks! Just use a Google Form to submit your video recordings!

Want to record one of our tutorials? We welcome video recordings from everybody!1

Recording Tips & Tricks

What this means for…

Group What’s new?
Instructors Just fill out an updated Google Form and we’ll take care of the rest. The google form is now more easily discoverable, as are the recording instructions which provide a best practice guide for doing screen recordings of tutorials. We have updated documentation on recording best practices that are easy to follow.
Event Organisers & Teachers Easily discover our large library of both human and automated video recordings to use in your training materials. All videos are licensed CC-BY so you can use them in your own training materials or even embed them in your course websites (Moodle, Blackboard, etc).
GTN Editors & Maintainers When a recording is submitted, a pull request will be opened with the appropriate metadata in the correct location and an easy checklist to follow to make sure everyone’s video is processed efficiently with every step taken care of.

Video Library 1.0

This work is based on the work done during the Gallantries: Bridging Training Communities in Life Science, Environment and Health avatar Gallantries project and the Video Library 1.0. As that project ended, the features developed during that time have now been rolled into the GTN to ensure their long term sustainability

The number of videos and hours is slightly lower in the GTN version as we have not yet imported every recording, currently we are missing some recordings which are not directly associated with a GTN material (e.g. webinars).

  1. They must be a recording of a GTN tutorial being taught. We are not accepting recordings of other training events at this time.

So many new features! GTN 2023-2024 Updates

9 July 2024   gcc gtn infrastructure

We recently presented the GTN at the 2024 Galaxy Community Conference. This presentation was a summary of the updates and new features that were added to the GTN in the past year.

4th MycobaMycobacterium tuberculosis complex NGS made easy

8 July 2024   NGS Tuberculosis Drug-resistance transmission evolution one-health

Tuberculosis (TB) is a big killer in many countries of the world, particularly in those with low and middle income. Next-generation sequencing has been key in improving our understanding of drug resistance acquisition and of transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Yet, the need for expertise guiding NGS implementation in laboratories and the lack of bioinformatic expertise, are main obstacles hindering the implementation of NGS into TB programs.

Phylogenetics tutorial takes researchers back to basics!

13 June 2024   Phylogenetics Tutorial GTN Australian BioCommons

A new Galaxy Training Network tutorial has been created to take researchers back to basics to uncover the principles of phylogenetics and how tree-building methods work. A longstanding collaboration between Professor Michael Charleston from the University of Tasmania and Australian BioCommons has delivered this self-guided tutorial featuring videos and hands-on exercises. To maximise its impact, the resource was tailored specifically to be shared globally via the Galaxy Training Network, and will form the basis of an upcoming live training workshop.

From GTN Intern to Tutorial Author to Bioinformatician

13 June 2024   single-cell training education trajectory user contributor

With growing access and interest in sequencing data, Galaxy is a knight in shining armor for wet lab scientists hoping to analyze their own data. With long term intentions of increasing access to bioinformatic analyses, the Galaxy Training Network (GTN) creates a safe space where non-computer-scientists may analyze their own data and even learn to code: an invaluable skill in today’s scientific world. Galaxy introduced me to brand new skills as an undergraduate and ultimately changed the trajectory of my career. Here is my story as a biology undergraduate with no coding experience turned GTN contributor &, eventually, coding bioinformatician: thanks to Galaxy.
