EOLAS: Submission Process
To have your work uploaded to EOLAS, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be emailed a form to fill in the details of your work. Simply complete this form and your work will be uploaded to the repository. EOLAS only uploads the work of those working or learning in the Irish FET sector. Please use your ETB, college or training centre email when contact EOLAS. Requests from Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo and other email services will be rejected.
Learner work uploaded to EOLAS can be used as an example of best practice and shared with incoming and current learners. It also provides learners with a stable link with which to share their work such as on their CVs, LinkedIn or with potential employers.
We only upload learner work that is considered of a higher standard and do so in collaboration with their teachers and college. Teachers and staff should get in touch with us by email to have learner work added to EOLAS.
EOLAS only uploads certain file formats in order to preserve content for long term use and access. Some file types are more prone to loss of data than others so these these formats are avoided. File formats were also selected as they do not require proprietary software to open are used.
If the content is not in the appropriate format, it will be converted before upload.
The recommended file formats are:
- Portable Document Format (.pdf)
- Portable Network Graphics (.png), Portable Document Format (.pdf)
- Comma- or tab-separated Values (.csv, .tsv, .txt)
