The GTN has long struggled with the rigid hierarchy of a single level of classification: topics. All materials had to be organised into a single topic, even when their contents sometimes spanned multiple topics! We added subtopics a while back to help further organise these tutorials, but that still did not solve the issue of needing to collect multiple learn materials in a single location for people to access.

Thus we have finally built tag based topics; these are not topic folders inside the GTN repository, but instead a collection of every tutorial tagged with some specific tag, organised into a new topic. As a demonstration of this, we have setup a Covid-19 topic.

We apologise for the long delay getting here, development time was quite limited for a long period during the pandemic, and we needed to re-organise some internal structures to better enable these new “views” into the GTN Materials.

At the Galaxy Training Network we are really committed to ensuring our training materials are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. This means that we want to make sure that the URLs to our training materials are persistent and don’t change. The GTN wants you to be able to rely on our URLs once you’ve added them to a poster or training material, without having to worry about them breaking in the future.

We know the GTN has a lot of learning materials (400 and counting!) which can make it quite difficult to figure out where to start in some topics.
