ELAN
“By using ELAN, I was first of all able to systematise my video data. Secondly, by playing the video frame by frame, I was able to get a better understanding of the embodied ways of collaborating.”
Thilde Emilie Møller, PhD, University of Copenhagen

LARM.fm
“In order to find out what music DR did actually play in the early years, the LARM.fm search function has been extremely helpful. Nearly all old programme sheets are available, and their information may be read in critical detail.”
Morten Michelsen, Associate professor, University of Copenhagen

Jacob Kreutzfeld, Arts and culture consultant, researcher

“SMURF is an excellent tool for accessing more than two hundred years of language use in Danish newspapers. It’s easy to use, and it provides robust results, whether you are interested in the long lines of conceptual development or in specific events in history.”
Mads Rosendahl Thomsen, Professor, Aarhus University

“This ought to be a mandatory methodology course for all Master’s programs in the Humanities department.”

NetLab online course
“Thanks for an interesting and practical course. It has certainly given me a lot to think about, and many useful ways of approaching my data gathering for my project!”
Ally McCrow-Young, PhD Fellow, University of Copenhagen

NetLab online course
“I finish the course with a much greater understanding of the challenges of modern web archiving, that I had not considered before. And with a bag full of new tricks on how to preserve things online and how to search in web archives. I think that a course like this should be taken by all historians and humanists.”
Barbara Ana Revuelta-Eugercios, Visiting researcher, University of Copenhagen
