Campus announces restriction of public access to educational content | The Daily Californian March 15, 2017 - 0 views

  •  
    "UC Berkeley announced Wednesday that it would restrict public access to existing educational content after a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation concluded that many of the video captions did not meet standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Campus will instead invest in developing new online content with necessary education features, according to campus spokesperson Roqua Montez. Montez said that because of limited viewership of more than 20,000 course capture videos and a projected cost of at least $1 million for captioning, campus decided not to revamp the videos deemed inaccessible. "On average, the older videos were watched for less than 8 minutes," Montez said. "(It) doesn't make sense to go back and do that, given the budget climate we are in. We had to weigh that as a factor.""

Cooley | Websites as Places of Public Accommodation: DOJ Settlement May Extend Accessibility Requirements to Virtual Space - 0 views

  •  
    "Recent headlines around a high-profile settlement between the US Department of Justice and edX, Inc., one of the largest and earliest distributors of MOOCs, have once again highlighted the importance of understanding the rules for making online courses and services accessible to those with various types and levels of disabilities. While much of the media coverage of the edX settlement has focused on the fact that the government sued so high-profile-and respected-an online provider, to date there has been little recognition that the enforcement action may signal an effort to extend the ADA's accessibility requirements not only to a broader range of non-institutional entities providing web-based instruction, but also to those that provide other accessibility-related services."

Amara's Wiki-subtitling Platform Adopted by the World's Leading Online Education Providers | Amara - About blog - pages - 0 views

  •  
    ""Amara's captioning and translation services have helped Coursera deliver educational videos to hundreds of thousands of students around the world," said Andrew Ng, co-founder of Coursera. "This was key to making our content accessible to non-native speakers, and has allowed our content to be delivered in dozens of languages.""
  •  
    Queste "pagine nascoste" del blog about di Amara sono strane: un pezzo di codice per embeddare un player con una trascrizione interattiva, comunicati stampa non datati, fra i quali questo: ora la cosa bizzarra è che è da un anno che Coursera ha smesso di usare Amara, e da 10 mesi che ha cancellato il suo team Amara. Il team di Khan Academy c'è ancora, ma è praticamente deserto.

The concept of openness behind c and x-MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) | Rodriguez | Open Praxis 2013 - 0 views

  •  
    "Abstract The last five years have witnessed a hype about MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) presaging a revolution in higher education. Although all MOOCs have in common their scale and free access, they have already bifurcated in two very distinct types of courses when compared in terms of their underpinning theory, format and structure, known as c-MOOCs and x-MOOCs. The concept of openness behind each of the formats is also very different. Previous studies have shown that c-and x-MOOCs share some common features but that they clearly differ on the learning theory and pedagogical model on which they stand. In this paper we extend earlier findings and concentrate on the concept of "openness" behind each format showing important differences.

When Equal Access Means Zero Access for All | Foundation for Economic Education March 11, 2017 - 0 views

    "Last week, the University made its decision final, and announced that it will begin the process of removing all the content on March 15th. To add insult to injury, it turns out that removing this digital library will ultimately end up requiring about five months worth of work- a cost UC Berkeley will be forced to pay."

    Articolo "anti-stato" sulla disputa tra Berkeley e il Dipartimento della Giustizia US (DoJ) in merito all'accessibilità dei corsi pubblici di Berkeley. L'autrice ignora deliberatamente diversi fatti: il riconoscimento da parte del DoJ degli sforzi di Berkeley per implementare l'accessibilità, il fatto che i video inaccessibili non verranno cancellati, ma il loro accesso verrà per ora ristretto, ecc,

Do You Speak Livemocha? An Interview with Clint Schmidt « Educational Technology and Change Journal - Stefanie Panke 2010-02-23 - 0 views

  •  
    "Livemocha is a social network service that supports language learning through audio-visual lessons and peer tutoring tools. Launched in September 2007, the platform has over 5 million registered members from over 200 countries. Lessons are provided for 36 different languages. While the standard lessons are freely accessible for registered users, the platform also offers "premium content" for a fee. Livemocha is more than just "Rosetta Stone on the Web." A unique selling point of the educational Web community is its collaborative approach to language learning: Members of the Livemocha community do not only learn a foreign language, they also tutor other community members in their native language. Users are encouraged to form learning tandems and offer feedback on their partner's speaking or writing exercises. The Livemocha platform supports this peer learning practice through comment features, voice recording and social awareness tools. For ETC Journal, I interviewed Clint Schmidt, Livemocha's Vice President of Marketing and Products. Clint has an impressive success record of developing marketing and product functions for a variety of high-growth Internet companies, including Half.com, eBay and ZoomIn.com, India's leading photo sharing and printing site. Clint holds a BSE in Entrepreneurial Management from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania."

Un Aggiornamento di Facebook nella Vita Reale - #ltis13 | video | Claude Almansi 2013-05-21 - 3 views

    "(su come visualizzare / nascondere i sottotitoli o cambiarne la lingua, e su come visualizzarne la trascrizione interattiva, cfr. Attivazione e disattivazione dei sottotitoli nelle FAQ sui sottotitoli di YouTube) Iter della sottotitolazione A Facebook Update In Real Life - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvQcabZ1zrk -è stato pubblicato su YouTube l'11 maggio 2013 da ExtremelyDecentFilms. Dylan Mahoney (sopranome: Booger Bender) lo ha aggiunto ad Amara.org, e più particolarmente al team Captions Requested, come http://www.amara.org/en/videos/bc0aoz7ueVek/info/a-facebook-update-in-real-life perché venga sottotitolato da volontari, il 12 maggio 2013. In effetti, finora (21 aggio 2013) diversi volontari l'hanno sottotitolato lì in inglese (lingua originale), francese, italiano, portoghese e tedesco, ed è in corso una sottotitolazione spagnola. Però se Amara è un ottimo strumento per la sottotitolazione, non funziona tanto bene per la visualizzazione: il player ha un codice embed che viene rifiutato da quasi tutte le piattaforme per scrivere online, poi comunque, in modalità "pieno schermo", non mostra i sottotitoli fatti con Amara. Per questo motivo ho ripubblicato il video su YouTube in A Facebook Update In Real Life - with subtitles - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99jWvUIw7YA - poi vi ho aggiunto i sottotitoli fatti con Amara, rimandando nella descrizione alle pagine di lavoro delle varie lingue e alla loro storia delle revisione per l'attribuzione ai sottotitolatori. È questa seconda versione YouTube che è embeddata sopra. Trascrizioni scaricabili Da ogni sottopagina di sottotitolazione linkata nella colonna sinistra della versione Amara del video: English French German Italian Portuguese Si può scaricare una trascrizione semplice dei relativi sottotitoli, cliccando su Download, poi su TXT nella lista a tendina che si apre.

Create an RSS Feed Reader Using Google Spreadsheet - 3 views

  •  
    Bellissimo, però con una pagina del foglio per ogni feed, sarebbe un po' difficile ottenere una vista d'insieme dei 343 feed elencati per ora in https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3592556/ltis13.opml ;-) Poi c'è la questione del tempo che metterebbe a caricarsi un google spreadsheet usato come freed reader per così tanti feed. O i contenuti di un feed viene soltanto caricato quando se ne apre la pagina?
  •  
    al momento ho letto solo il post non ci ho fatto ancora nulla ma è un progetto, di quelli magari da realizzare quest'estate: un data bank di risorse che contenga attività e risorse efl (dapprima) create o individuate dai ragazzi, poi condivisibile con altre materie, docenti, scuole ... (se si facesse in tanti e interconnessi sarebbe un bel passatempo e un bella risorsa espandibile all'infinito ) Cerco di scoprire nel frattempo se conviene/valga la pena usare il foglio elettronico, il database o limitare la ricerca ai webtool di feed/bookmarking etc.
  •  
    Grazie della risposta, Fabrizio. Chiedevo perché all'inizio dell'attività aggregante di #ltis 13, avevo creato una pagina di feedreader separati per ogni feed del file OPML in http://subtitling-for-accessibility-accessibility-and-creativity.wikispaces.com/ltis13-blog . Era facile, bastavano un po' di "cambia in -> cambia tutti" sul file OPML per ottenere il codice wiki che creava quella pagina di aggregatori (dettagli in http://almansi.wordpress.com/2013/04/22/cantieri-opmlerosi-ltis13/ ). Ma man mano che sono aumentati il numero di feed nel file OPML e la mia compulsione a controllare tutto, aumentando il numero degli item mostrati, la pagina diventava sempre più lenta da caricare. Da qui la soluzione della revisione attuale - 71a :D - di suddividerla in sottopagine per tipi di blog hosting, che come criterio distintivo, non mi piace, per usare una litote educata. Quindi forse quando ho un momento provo a rimettere il numero di item a 20 per ogni feed e a risbattere tutto nella pagina originale. Se non funziona, faccio un revert. Però è affascinante questa possibilità di trasformazione di una riga di dati separati da virgole così facilmente traducibili in varie codifiche... Se deciderai di usare uno spreadsheet Google, pensi di farlo alimentare da un modulo o di lasciar la gente scriverci dentro direttamente?

SEND (Smart Education Networks by Design) | CoSN - 0 views

  •  
    "Advances in technology make it possible for students to experience personalized learning anytime and anywhere. But this can only take place if our school systems have well designed networks that support the increased demands of student devices and 24/7/365 access and that remain current in the face of rapidly evolving technologies. In our first phase, with the generous support of Qualcomm, the SEND Initiative developed guidelines for network design and a checklist for district network planning. Currently, SEND II is building on that work in collaboration with leading technology partners: ENA, Filewave, Fortinet, Presidio, Juniper Networks, and SAFARI Montage, SEND II is developing next-level resources for building network architectures that can handle and evolve with new demands."

Fair Use, MOOCs, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act: FAQs - 0 views

  •  
    "Fair Use, MOOCs, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act: Frequently Asked Questions In October 2015 the Librarian of Congress issued new rules permitting certain teachers of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to break encryption on DVDs, Blu-Ray discs and streaming videos to create short clips for use in their teaching. It's a major step forward for MOOC teachers and their students. This document, prepared by Professors Peter Decherney and Brandon Butler, answers some of the most common questions you might have about the new rule."
  •  
    (Per il contesto, vedi http://infojustice.org/archives/35654 e http://ipclinic.org/2016/01/22/fair-use-moocs-and-the-digital-millennium-copyright-act-frequently-asked-questions/) Parti problematiche: Coursera and Udacity are for profit companies. Can they take advantage of the exemption? Coursera and Udacity are the platforms. Colleges, universities, museums, and other nonprofit organizations offer courses through these platforms. The organization that creates the course must be an accredited nonprofit educational institution, but the provider of the software platform may be for-profit . So a university course offered through Coursera may take advantage of the exemption. How can the material be restricted to students enrolled in the course? We believe that use of passwords provided only to enrolled students will sufficiently limit access to the course content to students or learners. How can redistribution be prevented? Offering streaming rather than downloadable versions of the course content should reasonably limit unauthorized redistribution of the work. Unfortunately, this unfairly disadvantages learners with slower internet access" Cioè l'autorizzazione a far saltare i blocchi anticopia vale soltant per i MOOC che non sono MOOC perché non sono Open ma protetti da password. E l'argomento secondo il quale il fair use vale per i video di corsi Coursera e Udacity, a patto che gli enti che elargiscono il corso non siano a scopo di lucro, anche se le piattaforme lo sono, è dubbio. in effetti Coursera e Udacity traggono profitto dai materiali proposti da questi enti. Quanto all'offerta dei video in solo streaming per impedirne lo scaricamento: almeno nei corsi Coursera dove il link di scaricamento è stato t

prova inserimento su post di rss - 2 views

  •  
    per i nuovi di diigo; fatta ricerca per tag RSS dalla mia libreria > copiato indirizzo link rss (tasto destro sull'icona rss a destra in alto) incollato qui sul post (magari qualcuno può anche trovarvi qualcosa di utile). Tanti potevano essre etichettati anche come opml ma allora non me ne ero ancora itneressato (dovrei ri-taggarli adesso, prima o poi...)
  •  
    Grazie Fabrizio! Allora, se https://www.diigo.com/rss/user/Digobarfab/rss - che hai bookmarked - ci dà un feed con tutti i segnalibri che hai taggato rss finora, allo stesso modo https://www.diigo.com/rss/user/Digobarfab/rss = segnalibri che io ho taggato RSS finora, e https://groups.diigo.com/group/ltis13/rss/tag/rss = tutti i segnalibri che sono stati taggati RSS e condivisi col gruppo ltis13 finora. E se sostituisco quel /rss finale con /[qualsiasi tag] in una o l'altra dei 3 URL precedenti ottengo tutti i post taggati con quel qualsiasi tag da te o me, o condivisi col gruppo ecc. Giusto? Però quel che non mi è chiaro è la parte "prova inserimento su post" del tuo segnalibro. Dov'è quel post dove hai inserito un reader per quel https://www.diigo.com/rss/user/Digobarfab/rss ? Cioè qual'è la piattaforma **blog** che permette l'inserimento **in un post** (e non solo nel template generale) di uno (o più) feed reader? Vero, quando Ning era una rete di reti, e non quell'hosting a pagamento di reti discrete che è diventato, si poteva fare nella home di una rete: quando il presidente e allora generale Musharraf aveva decretato lo stato d'emergenza in Pakistan, , avevo aperto pakfeeds.ning.com per un amico in Rawalpindi che prima era stato piuttosto pro-Musharraf, ma era rimasto molto male dalla censura a tutte le TV, e vi avevo schiaffato un mucchio di feed reader per tutti i canali di informazione web alternativi che i militanti dei diritti umani avevano subito aperto. E con wikispaces, si può fare in qualsiasi pagina - vedi http://subtitling-for-accessibility-accessibility-and-creativity.wikispaces.com/ltis13+Blog+Blogspot , ottenuta dalle righe riguardanti i blog blogspot.com del file OPML di Andreas, e facendo un po' di "cambia in" semplici per trasformarle nel codice wiki di feedreader wikispaces corrispondenti Ma con una piattaforma blog?
