Communication as a form of learning - 2 views

    Libraries have long been a source of mostly free information for many people dating back to the Library of Alexandria. Early libraries used scrolls, but Tod Colgrove suggests that more learning may have taken place via person to person learning in those spaces, then from the scrolls themselves. 2000 years later, although we have vastly upgraded the technology and have an abundance of information at our fingertips, right now we are still learning from each other by taking part in this MOOC and sharing our information and knowledge so that we can learn from each other. Another important point Colgrove makes is that as long as librarians can come up with cutting edge ways to share knowledge, there will be a place for libraries in our schools and public places.
    Libraries have a role to play in our lives and the libraries of the past did the same on our ancestors. They continue to undergo metamorphosis in response to the demands of the future. Viva the spirit and the resilience of libraries!

Medieval Access to information - 4 views

    This interesting inset describes an early classification system for medieval manuscripts, taking early steps to make information easier to access. I thought that it would be interesting to add for the group.
    The reality is the present is the foundation for the future. The medieval libraries were effective and serving the needs of that generation. The same generation found loopholes that led to the development of what we call modern libraries. We no w know who to thanks for the wonderful and life and time saving GPS!
    The future will always trace its existence from the past which laid down the foundation. The shape of the libraries of the future is being crafted now. The GPS we see now has its roots in the Medieval libraries.

La revista Orsai, un ejemplo de conocimiento abierto | Nuevas tecnologías apl... - 4 views

    Esta es la historia de Hernan Casciari, bueno una de sus historias porque él se dedica a contar historias. Es escritor y periodista y según nos cuenta, debido a circunstancias personales vino a Europa a recoger un premio literario y se quedó en Catalunya. Nos habla de como se unió al conocimiento abierto.
    Esta revista es una maravilla. Ojalá tuviéramos la amplitud de miras y el deseo de conocimiento que tiene Casciari. Un placer.

German universities scrap all tuition fees | The Times - 1 views

    All German universities will be free of charge when term starts next week after fees were abandoned in Lower Saxony, the last of seven states to charge. "Tuition fees are socially unjust," said Dorothee Stapelfeldt, senator for science in Hamburg, which scrapped charges in 2012.
    Could this also be 'open access'?

c maggard and michielmoll liked it
    RE: the multimedia editing activity. Paint.NET is free simple image editing program. It has more advanced features than windows paint, but less than a full editor like GIMP. Thus, you can use it to do some quick high quality editing when you don't want to mess around with a full editor. It is also interesting in terms of Open source, since it started as open source, but is no longer open source, because the author felt there was problems with plagiarism...
    Awesome! I've saved this and can't wait to test it out. Thanks for sharing!
