This initiative is based on the Domains of One’s Onw (DoOO) approach, originally devised at the University of Mary Washington (UMW) and now adopted by other institutions around the globe – Coventry being the first one to do so in Europe.

Coventry.domains provides lecturers with a sandbox for exploring emerging scholarly practices and may be used for a wide range of academic purposes: designing sites to house course resources, creating dedicated sites for research projects, exploring new tools for teaching and learning, etc.
You can read more on what students and staff can learn from engaging with DoOO initiatives in this post that Audrey Watters wrote during her Visiting Fellowship at DMLL: Why ‘A Domain of One’s Own’ Matters (For the Future of Knowledge).
Beyond the technical infrastructure for this, Coventry.domains offers learning materials and activities that are available as Open Education Resources (OER). You can find them on this site: https://coventry.domains/learn/
