Convert PDF to CSV Tables in Tact - 6 views

  • Tabula really is a wonderful tool for extracting data from tables in PDFs. It’s a locally hosted web app that allows you to Select one or more PDFs with the data you want. Identify the area of the page from which to extract the data. Save the data in CSV, TSV, or JSON format. I gave Tabula a try on the same PDF tables I wrote about last night, and it worked perfectly. You may recall that I didn’t like the column headings in the original table. Well, Tabula let me drag a rectangle to select just the data portion of the table, leaving the stuff I didn’t want out of the extracted CSV file.
    How to use Tabula, a browser based locally hosted web app to convert a PDF to a proper file for view in Excel.
    Perhaps useful to the educators out there

The Wilderness Downtown - 47 views

     Chrome Experiments of fun with html5 are meant to show off the clean and fast beauty of the new code.  Of  course Google wants you to see it in Chrome for full effect, and I would encourage that as Chrome is an easy and responsive browser, you try it out.  The Wilderness Downtown is a great example of an interactive and connected multimedia experience that mashes together Google Maps and Earth with a driving tune to blast you to your past.  Go in and enter your old address and feel the nostalgia of swooping over your childhood home with a soundtrack and pacing just for you. Students are making digital stories.  They may not be writing html5 apps, but they are accessing, or can access, many sources of media to deepen their message.  A showing of a story like what you help create with The Wilderness Downtown experiment can inspire students to consider how they can use everyday tools like Google Earth to connect with an audience. Just go to and type in your address.

      What's up? I'm using the toolbar for Safari only to find out there is no toolbar. My students are needing to use Digo with Safari. What gives?
    • Maggie Tsai
      For Safari, pls use Diigolet
    I'm confused. It says here that the toolbar is not available for my browser--SAFARI, yet I'm using the toolbar to bookmark this. I wonder what happened?

Diigo: a match made in SHEEN Sharing heaven? « SHEEN Sharing - 2 views

  • Diigo is like a next generation Delicious: it’s social bookmarking with the ability to also append comments and discussions on resources to the resources links, and to highlight and comment on sections of resources you’ve linked to.  Being a Web2.0 tool, you can then expose these resources, comments, discussions and highlights to other applications using feeds and widgets.  This means that the ECN can use Diigo to share resources and their experiences with them in one common place, but the results of this can be picked up and exposed in any site or repository.
  • instead of saving your favourites or bookmarks in your browser, you save them to your account on the website; this way, it doesn’t matter what computer you are on, you can always access them.  You can import your browser bookmarks
  • Diigo is a next-generation social bookmarking site.  It includes features for sharing and exposing annotations of, discussions around, and highlighted portions from resources, as well as really useful group features, allowing groups with specific interests to discuss and share resources.

  • Diigo and Netvibes We’re trialling using Netvibes as a central gathering and dissemination point for resources shared and recommended via the ECN.  Netvibes lets you put any number of “blocks” or widgets into it so it’s a one-stop-shop with little windows into feeds and pages and tools from other sites. You can put a block in Netvibes from a Diigo group; you’ll see resources shared publicly within that group, along with tags, descriptions, comments, discussions, and highlighted portions of those resources. For each resource you can either view all the Diigo commentary on the resource, or view the resource directly (you can toggle easily between these in Netvibes). You can link straight from that block by tag, by user, by group, and by resource, and go straight into the relevant place in Diigo. You can have a block in Netvibes showing a public group’s  forum discussions. You can have a block in Netvibes showing your resource list slideshow. You can have blocks in Netvibes based on feeds for specific tags, e.g. a block showing everything tagged “employability”.  This means you can have a fairly fine-grained structure within Netvibes, making it easier for visitors to the Netvibes page to find things on the main topics of interest.

Google Docs - Viewer - 0 views

    Nice for embedding pdf or PPT files on your webpage, or providing a link to the file that can be viewed right in the browser. However, the document must be uploaded somewhere online first - must have a URL to access it.

WordNet - About WordNet - 140 views

    WordNet® is a large lexical database of English, developed under the direction of George A. Miller (Emeritus). Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser. WordNet is also freely and publicly available for download. WordNet's structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.

    Agreed. Very useful in Biology, Psychology and PE. Nice find.
    What did you use to access this site? I used Google Chrome, as suggested on the site, but every time I try to look at it, it refuses to load. I emailed Google to let them know, too.
    Hi Holly, you need to upgrade to the latest chrome beta.
    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was using the latest edition (downloaded it yesterday). Well, I guess I'll just have to wait to see what Google says. Thanks anyway!

    A great countdown timer tool. Enter the date, time and title. The site generates a link for you to share or bookmark. So you can turn your browser off and come back to it, unlike many similar tools. Good for setting homework & essay deadlines.
