Help with recording and sharing your WW1 research

The e-learning resources and downloadable guides on this page will help you to record what you discover and share it with others.

Sharing WW1 step-by-step

Our first guide to sharing WW1 research takes you step-by-step through the stages needed to turn your WW1 research into stories to share. 

To learn more about any of the steps, you can download separate guides that focus on the various stages:

  • Taking notes and keeping records
  • Copyright and intellectual property
  • Choosing the right story
  • Choosing the right location
  • Promoting events and activities

You can download all of the guides and resources mentioned here from the box on the right hand side of this page.  (If you're wondering where the helpsheets and links that were on this page have gone, don't worry.  You'll find them inside our new guides.)

Practical guides

In our guides to sharing WW1 research we've highlighted ways to share pictures, video and audio files online.  To help you with these practical activities, we've got three new guides to working with media available for download:

  • Sharing WW1 using Historypin
  • Creating digital stories
  • Editing sound files

We've also got practical guidance about designing an exhibition that is just as useful for creating booklets and working online.

Acknowledgements
