“But society as a whole will benefit enormously. The store of human capital will  be more broadly and accurately represented by credentials that are useful in a  mobile, interconnected world. Separating the credentialing and teaching  functions of higher education allows organizations to specialize in one or the  other.”

Juliana Elisa Raffaghelli's insight:

Needless to say, I embrace the idea of an open world, open access, fairplay. That's why altmetrics fit to me. However, we need to be critical: a new movement taking care of the corruption of the open should emerge.

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promises and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses | Parlor Press

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promises and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses | Parlor Press | An open world (?) | Scoop.it

Invasion of the MOOCs: The Promise and Perils of Massive Open Online Courses is one of the first collections of essays about the phenomenon of “Massive Online Open Courses.” Unlike accounts in the mainstream media and educational press, Invasion of the MOOCs is not written from the perspective of removed administrators, would-be education entrepreneurs/venture capitalists, or political pundits. Rather, this collection of essays comes from faculty who developed and taught MOOCs in 2012 and 2013, students who participated in those MOOCs, and academics and observers who have first hand experience with MOOCs and higher education. These twenty-one essays reflect the complexity of the very definition of what is (and what might in the near future be) a “MOOC,” along with perspectives and opinions that move far beyond the polarizing debate about MOOCs that has occupied the media in previous accounts. Toward that end, Invasion of the MOOCs reflects a wide variety of impressions about MOOCs from the most recent past and projects possibilities about MOOCs for the not so distant future.

"Open Access" By Peter Suber

"Open Access" By Peter Suber | An open world (?) | Scoop.it

"Open Access - By Peter Suber 

 

NOW AVAILABLE IN MULTIPLE OPEN ACCESS FORMATS

 

... The Internet lets us share perfect copies of our work with a worldwide audience at virtually no cost. We take advantage of this revolutionary opportunity when we make our work “open access”: digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Open access is made possible by the Internet and copyright-holder consent, and many authors, musicians, filmmakers, and other creators who depend on royalties are understandably unwilling to give their consent. But for 350 years, scholars have written peer-reviewed journal articles for impact, not for money, and are free to consent to open access without losing revenue.

 

In this concise introduction, Peter Suber tells us what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Distilling a decade of Suber’s influential writing and thinking about open access, this is the indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers."

Peter Suber has been a driving force in the rapidly growing area(s) of Open Access. Rather than cite this or that have a look at his info at Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Suber  Here is a wonderful resource for anyone who uses Internet resources. Get a copy for a eBook-Reader, a computer, or your Boss, but don't forget yourself. Then Read it and then keep as a handy reference resource.

Robin Good's curator insight, February 2, 2:47 AM



The Data Visualisation Catalogue is an on-going project developed by Severino Ribecca which attempts to index and catalogue all of the data visualization approaches available, in order to help journalists, designers and professional communicators identify more easily the type of data visualization most appropriate for their needs.

.

In the Catalogue there are now over 50 different data visualization approaches that have been identified, and about a third of them have also been documented with a basic description, visual examples, relevant tags to associate it with their possibe best uses, variations, and with a list of alternative tools available to create that type of data chart.

.

You can browse the catalogue also by using the "Search by Function" which is designed to aid in choosing the appropiate data visualization approach based on the specific communication need at hand, or with the "View by List" approach, which organizes dataviz methods by types. 

.

My comment: Excellent resource for visual communicators of all kinds as it helps you see the great variety of dataviz approaches available. It makes it easier to identify and select relevant solutions according to needs and use.

Un interessante report su uno studio condotto tra il 2007-2010, sull'approccio degli accademici all'uso di informazione e strumenti digitali. Mi pare molto interessante la diversificazione tra discipline e la non (grande) differenza tra giovani e anziani, due presupposti di grande importanza per orientare la ricerca sulla tematica, secondo me, ancorata alla descrizione generica dei profili e ad una visione piuttosto romantica del potere delle tecnologie per la società partecipativa, contro il potere delle culture accademiche.

Webinar March 5: Badges for Learning - A review of the formative role of badges in two open online courses

Webinar March 5: Badges for Learning - A review of the formative role of badges in two open online courses | An open world (?) | Scoop.it

Simon Cross, Open University, UK

The emergence of open online learning courses brings in to sharp relief the viability of existing forms of teacher provided formative and summative assessment. For such courses that carry no charge for participation alternative structures for engaging, motivating and sustaining study need to be sought. Badges or similar such visual public symbols that communicate to others a particular quality, achievement or affiliation possessed by the owner may have a role to play. This session will cover some potential social and psychological roles for badges and then report on the reception and use of badges in two 'massive' open online courses delivered in 2013. This will highlight the varied functions badges performed with particular attention to how they may support and guide learning in a 'formative' capacity during a course and the need for effective pedagogic design and alignment of the course badging strategy. This discussion will draw upon data from end of courses surveys that specifically asked about badges, pre-course surveys, and user comments made during the course such as on Twitter.

The start time will be 07:00 UST/GMT (duration 1 hour approx). See your equivalent local time. http://timeanddate.com/s/2hw9

THE OPEN BOOK

"THE OPEN BOOK is a crowdsourced, multi-author publication built to contextualise the international movement for open knowledge in the words of those who are helping build it today. What are the aims and motivations of this movement’s pioneers, and how do concepts about digital transparency, open data and the Commons impact society? Based on contributions from a variety of thought leaders working in fields as diverse as sustainability, design, business and development, THE OPEN BOOK will serve as a platform for discussion and a launching pad for new ideas about the future of a global open knowledge movement in a time of rapid technological and societal progress" from source: http://issuu.com/finnish-institute/
