Adnoddau digidol ar gyfer sefydliadau treftadaeth

Mae argyfwng coronafeirws (COVID-19) wedi ysgogi llawer o sefydliadau treftadaeth i wneud defnydd newydd o ddigidol neu ddatblygu'r hyn y maent eisoes yn ei wneud. Rydym wedi rhoi rhestr o adnoddau at ei gilydd i'w cefnogi.

Diweddarwyd ddiwethaf: 15 Mehefin 2020

Mae canlyniadau i'n harolwg Agweddau a Sgiliau Digidol ar gyfer Treftadaeth (DASH) wedi bod yn dweud wrthym pa fath o weithgareddau digidol y mae eu sefydliadau treftadaeth yn canolbwyntio arnynt ar hyn o bryd. Mae'r gweithgareddau hyn wedi disgyn i wyth categori cyffredinol:

  • Gweithio gyda data
