Creative eLearning to explain data modelling with Project Haystack (Fantom Factory)
Fantom Factory works with The Project Haystack which delivers an open source data tagging standard to enable people, machines, and systems around the world to "understand" processed data. The entry is Fantom Factory’s official online eLearning course for Project Haystack. The methodology is difficult to learn so pace and content are very important.
The material is consistent in level and the course components are well constructed. The user is guided through the subject matter and can be confident of having the necessary information on completion.
