Intellij 13 Setup for DSpace Development on Mac OS X

DSpace 6 Debugging with IntelliJ IDEA 15

  • Format: youtube clip
  • Audience: developers/tech staff
  • Advantages: step by step, visual
  • Disadvantages: should be ideally refreshed once a year, to ensure it stays up to date with recent IDEA versions and DSpace practices

Atmire Analyzer for SEO

  • Format: self-service web application to learn more about SEO for your DSpace repository
  • Audience: repository managers who already use DSpace
  • Advantages: immediate learning/results 
  • Disadvantages: No extensive A to Z explanation, information is provided in smaller tidbits/advice

DSpace Advanced Policy Manager

  • Format: youtube clip
  • Audience: Repository managers who already use DSpace
  • Advantages: point and click of a very specific feature, immediate learning
  • Disadvantages: 

For this one, I think it's a great example of making sure we make our features more intuitive to start from. If a user really needs a video like this to properly understand the feature, we haven't built the feature or the user interface clear enough. So even though the video serves a purpose right now, I really hope there's no need for videos like this for DSpace 7

Introduction to DSpace Webinar (2013)

  • Format: recording of a webinar, ~20 min of prepared content + Q&A
  • Audience: Aspiring repository managers / People with little to no prerequisite knowledge
  • Advantages: overview, high level
  • Disadvantages: not clearly described in metadata what's all covered in there. No one will land on this video looking for something specific, even though it's addressed
