    Many interesting charts and data of the global internet use, access, and contributions

    Cool!! It's so valuable to see behind the scenes of a lot of the open (or closed) tools we use. These images, maps, and infographics are really neat and use a lot of data that probably gets forgotten about in a lot of discussions. Thanks for posting!

    Atlas, publications, charts and tables of global information and internet geographies and impacts on information access, information production and information distribution, done over a four year period by Oxford Information Institute. Findings, data, and publication will be published in Open Access formats and platforms. The website is simple but contains lots of information relevant to the topics in Stanford. There are links to external related publications about information geography, access, distribution and production. Very good website. Some limitations include: bias from the two developers and producers as well as institution itself, unknown (not identified) contributors and sponsors.

    A very valuable collection demonstrating how economic, political, cultural and linguistic ties impact the flow of knowledge is and information. Of course, such charts do little to explain, why this happens and where a more even distribution of knowledge is desirable. Also, the data that lies behind the visualisations is not always open. Especially vauable are the links to the data collections that are accessible.

Twirpx - all for students - e-archive - 0 views

  •  
    We - students, graduate students and professors from different universities of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, CIS and non-CIS countries. We believe that the essence of higher education is not in memorizing 30-40 books on the list of disciplines. A good engineer - not the one who knows by heart the formulas, theorems and methods, and the one who knows the ways of solving problems and approaches to the study of various problems.

Why Open Education Matters - 3 views

  •  
    Why Open Education Matters video competition.
  •  
    I think this is a beautifully simple and clear wonderful explanation of why open education matters! I like how it discusses the conflict that exists without too much judgement and explains some of the open jargon such as OER. Thank you for sharing.

Open Innovation - The Good, the bad and the uncertainties - 0 views

  •  
    Eliza Laur CORAS and Adrian Tumitru TANTAU elaborate on the principles of open innovation. Students experienced in open learning might be better suited in a business world, where innovation has changed from being done in a closed shop, to being fostered by a free - albeit carefully managed - in- and outflow of information

Four critiques of open data initiatives - 5 views

  •  
    Open data initiatives may hold much promise and value, but more attention is needed on how these projects are developing as complex socio-technical systems. Rob Kitchin elaborates on four specific areas that have yet to be fully interrogated.

Shule.Info - 0 views

  •  
    Shule.Info is a project that puts data about Tanzanian schools online, providing information for the overall country, regions, and individual schools. The website is also in both English and Swahili, the language of the majority of Tanzanians. This is a great attempt at making this open data accessible and understandable to the people to who need it. "We all know that education in Tanzania is in a state of crisis. Massive failure rates. Not enough teachers. Not enough books. Poor teaching. And many more problems. So what do you do if you are a parent, brother or sister and want to find a good school? What if you are a council or national government leader and want to track progress? Right now it is very difficult to do so, because data is not easily available. And when you can access data, it is very difficult to understand and use. Open data is in fact relevant to all of us in making beter decisions. It is not just a concept for technical experts. If we knew which medicines were available in our nearest health centres we would save ourselves wasted trips. If we had live traffic updates we could better plan our travel. And if we had data on school performance we would have the chance to make better decisions about our children's education and potentially shape the course of their future differently."

    También existe un lenguaje de programación llamado Julia (http://julialang.org/) bastante parecido a Python

    Open source is the future. Obvs, Microsoft et.al. paved the way, but moving forward, the route to privacy and access is via free software that can be adapted on the fly.
  •  
    Microsoft también tiene un sitio sobre "open source" llamado Codeplex (https://www.codeplex.com/), aunque no siempre se debe fiar (https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/lest-codeplex-perplex.es.html), hablan de open source, pero no de software libre.

Governance Of Science - 0 views

  •  
    This ground-breaking text offers a fresh perspective on the governance of science from the standpoint of social and political theory. Science has often been seen as the only institution that embodies the elusive democratic ideal of the 'open society'.

OPEN DATA COMMONS, A LICENSE FOR OPEN DATA - 3 views

  •  
    An interesting article arguing for the creation of open licenses for data. They make the point that the use of creative commons licenses is mistaken as these are designed for creative work not data or data bases. Unfortunately the argument - which is repeated several times - is not very thoroughly presented. The Talis Community License is mentioned as a possible alternative. The paper dates from 2008 and is thus - apart from the forceful argument for open licenses as the more viable alternative to the public domain - primarily of historical interest. Much progress has been made in the field with Open Data Commons Licenses now being an accepted standard as well as well as country specific licenses such as Open Government License UK, Open Government License Canada or Data License Germany (cf. http://opendefinition.org/licenses/).

    DOAJ is an online directory that indexes and provides access to quality open access, peer-reviewed journals. DOAJ es un directorio de revistas de acceso abierto, que tiene filtros por lenguaje, rama, país de publicación, año de publicación, y lo que me pareció más interesante, el tipo de licencia.

    Directory of Open Access Journals
  •  
    Es un recurso muy interesante, aunque personalmente suelo utilizar el ISI Web of Science, que considero más completo y relevante. Pero todos estos repositorios facilitan localizar adecuadamente la información sobre un autor, trabajo concreto o revista, y permite elegir, además, adecuadamente, la revista a la que mandar un trabajo de investigación que haya desarrollado uno mismo simplemente visitando tal directorio y viendo los topics que tiene cada una de las revistas.
  •  
    Unfortunately I see there is only one South African source.

    "Open access seems to be known as much for inadequate and exploitative publishing practices as for any increase in access". This is the bigges problem with publishing practice. Julia

    I like the directory as it will allow access to the type of information that the world needs at no cost at all. Well done!
