Open Data Handbook Documentation Release 1.0.0/ Open Knowledge Foundation - 4 views

  •  
    This handbook discusses the legal, social and technical aspects of open data. Open data, especially open government data, is a tremendous resource that is yet to be tapped properly. It is targeted for civil servants, journalists, politicians, data professionals or anyone interested in open data. It can be used by anyone but is especially designed for those seeking to open up data. It discusses the why, what and how of open data - why to go open, what open is, and the how to 'open' data.
    This book explains the basic concepts of 'open data', especially in relation to government. It covers how open data creates value and can have a positive impact in many different areas. In addition to exploring the background, the handbook also provides concrete information on how to produce open data.

    As one of the academic libraries in the Philippines, we are also using the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education as bases for our Information Literacy program though its more than a decade. We recognize its competencies for outcomes based education.

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!

    Nothing beats the real thing

    Professor Jansen at his best! I have been wondering if MOOC's would work well with entry level students. For me, this Mooc has been stimulating and informative, but then, I already have a post grad university qualification and I wished to update myself on newer research methodologies and advances in information management. It would be interesting to test whether young people who are not initially accepted at university, for whatever reason, could use MOOCs to prepare themselves for their future chosen courses, but that would take a lot of determination, maturity and dedication on their part. Having been a bricks and student myself, I would recommend it to all young people who wish to study after school, but MOOC's do have a place to keep oneself updated. I've learnt so much and I intend to carry on with this research after the course for my own benefit (and who knows maybe register for more MOOCs!)

The beautiful magazines setting out to prove print isn't dead | Media | The Observer - 4 views

    A brief article outlining the ongoing value of print.
  •  
    I always think printing can't be replaced ,but because rising of costing and resources shrink, and inflation of population. I think in future, schools, printing text books will still exist, but only people who have power in society, no matter politics, money or wisdom, can afford .
  •  
    I believe that it has something to do with preference. There are books I like to have them in print and others in electronic forms. The fact that a number of old books that I read at school are now free encourages some of us to keep them in an electronic format and read them again without the pressures or fear of being scolded by our beloved teachers (Tom Brown's School Days- my standard 5 or Grade 7 book comes to mind). I cannot wait to read a collection of new printed books that my local bookshop has tagged as good reads for the silly season. Magazines "tastes" better in their printed format.

    Importante iniciativa que promueve el conocimiento abierto

    A world where knowledge creates power for the many, not the few.

    A world where data frees us - to make informed choices about how we live, what we buy and who gets our vote.

    A world where information and insights are accessible - and apparent - to everyone.

    Knowledge is power and it is for everyone to take.

Copyright in MOOCS - 5 views

    If you want to dig deeper in terms of copyright, this PDF might be helpful.

    What copyright considerations effect MOOC?
    Are technology transfer issues at stake?

    Both discussed very nicely in this paper?
  •  
    The issue of copyright has always been a contentious issue long before the introduction of MOOCs. The debate, now that we have MOOCs in our midst will continue as we try to find a common ground. The issue on the table is fair play.
  •  
    The article addresses the copyright challenges in a MOOC environment. Very useful reading as it discusses the IPR issues we generally do not think of.

    Thanks for sharing this write up. Though it is written in the context of African continent, it holds true for any developing country. MOOCs have potential to reach out to the masses if rightly implemented. accessibility to technology at the learner end is a a major issue and it needs to be addressed first to make MOOCs relevant and sustainable.

OPEN AND CLOSED - 30 views

    An alternative perspective on "openness".
  • ...9 more comments...

    Beware of "openwash". Whenever a term becomes so popular, it is important to clarify the definition and scope of the author/speaker/presenter.
  •  
    An alternative opinion on openness, I agree.
    Openness may evoke different feelings to people who have the "closed" experience. It may be also people's disbelief in the buzz-words and buzz-trends which come and go.
  •  
    I agree with the danger of Openness. Not everything should have open access.
    What happens with the pages that show people how to make guns or bombs? I think certain pages should not only be dismissed but also closed.
  •  
    This is interesting. Technology is changing so fast! Already implications about 3D printing is in the news!!
  •  
    So true ibudule. Is 'openness' to become another catch-prase and trend as 'green', 'robust debate', 'politically correct' terms for almost anything? The deeper significance of the concept can be undermined by it becoming the last trendy issue which is applied to almost anything and everything.
  •  
    So true, not everything should be open, but it is getting hard in our world, where everyone addicted to technologies. Technological dependence is becoming a huge issue. For example, leaked Snapchat images are all over the internet, and 50% of users are teen in the age of 13 to 17 years old. And nowadays, most of pics aren't images of dogs, cats or weekend dinner, they are images of naked people. If its open, then there is no privacy.
  •  
    I actually remember reading this article last year. It's quite frightening how these new methods of production have the potential to do a great deal of harm. Personally, I believe such "openness" can lead to subversion but that the benefits outweigh the risks.
  •  
    Morozov is right to bash "openwashing". But he is wrong in his Statement on "open-source". He writes "While Popper's openness is primarily about politics and a free flow of ideas, open-source is about cooperation, innovation and Efficiency" - well if we look at the core and origin of "open source", we have to look at "free Software" and its definition given by the "Inventor" of "free and open source Software", Richard Stallman. And we will see, that Stallman has a robust and transparent agenda of "free flow of ideas", very liberal, very Popper-like. So "free Software" is the wrong example for open-washing, because it came from "freedom" first. For more, see https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html

    The jury is still out there and only time will tell.
  •  
    The argument will be with us for a very long time. I think this is based on the side of the fence that one is sitting on. It is just like a case of what came first a chicken or an egg. The fact is Open has place to occupy in our learning space. The jury is still out there.
  •  
    Thanks for sharing this well presented write up. Big question put forth is are we really getting the outcomes expected from the open society. Open vs. quality is a big issue. At times restricting access helps a great deal.
