The science behind data visualisation

The science behind data visualisation | MEDIATOOLS | Scoop.it

Beaucoup reconnaissent la datavisualisation comme un outil efficace tant pour la narration que pour l'analyse, un ioutil à même de surmonter la plupart des obstacles linguistiques et éducatifs. Mais pourquoi ? Quelles sont les formes abstraites et les couleurs capables de communiquer plus efficacement à partir de grandes quantités de données ? Une compréhension de comment fonctionne la perception humaine vous servira non seulement à répondre à cette question, mais aussi à vous guider pour améliorer la conception de vos propres visualisations.

10 Great Tools for Academic Research You Should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | MEDIATOOLS | Scoop.it

"Compared with how academic research was carried out in the pre-internet era, It seems like technology is really a godsend gift to researchers. From easy and unlimited access to journal articles to web tools that do the referencing and auto-syncing, everything has been digitized making it way easier for todays researchers to add to the body of the human knowledge than any time in history."

Working of PowerPoint presentations on ios devices is a big problem nowadays. Many companies are working on developing a tool which makes html5 files from presentation that work on ios platform. In my opinion 'HTML5Point' created by DigitalOfficePro is very useful and simple way to convert PowerPoint presentation to html5 format.

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically | MEDIATOOLS | Scoop.it

Excerpt from review article by VentureBeat:
"Upload your script, choose some backgrounds, and magically created a professional-looking storyboard of your movie. Or the graphic novel version of your text-based anything.

Amazon Studios released Storyteller today to allow writers and filmmakers to quickly, easily — and cheaply — storyboard their scripts.

Roy Price, Amazon’s director of Studios said: “Storyteller provides a digital backlot, acting troupe, prop department, and assistant editor — everything you need to bring your story to life.”

You start by uploading a script to Amazon Studios — or by playing with one that’s already there. Then simply page through the script paragraph by paragraph. Storyteller will try to match up characters, props, and background with the words in each chunk of text, and it does a surprisingly good job.

But if you don’t like what Storyteller gives, you can choose from its library, or even upload your own custom background or characters. Currently, the software has a library of thousands of props, characters, and backgrounds..."

The Free-Form Visual Web Publishing Editor: Scroll Kit

Robin Good's curator insight, June 28, 2013 10:22 AM



Scroll Kit is a web-based and mobile publishing editor, that can work in tandem with WordPress, and which allows you to work freely on the page by positioning and styling your content in any way you want.


With Scroll Kit you can edit text in-line on the actual page, and move the text in any location you want. Alignment of different text blocks or other objects is made easy by an invisible grid that shows up only when you drag an object around.


It is also possible to style text, change fonts, add images and graphic shapes, as well as embed "iframes", YouTube videos and Twitter content.


A useful feature alllows you to preview how your content will look on mobile devices too.


My comment: Scroll Kit is a good example of a new breed of web publishing editors, which further simplify the editor's job while providing maximum flexibility.


Scroll Kit is a fantastic web design and publishing tool for web designers capable of leveraging its notable power. For those who have no design skills this may not be a great solution as having all this freedom is good only when you know exactly what to do. (Some pro-looking templates may help in this direction - a few are already available, more will hopefully come later)


Here the Scroll Kit Manifesto:


"The web is the most advanced publishing system we've ever had but
the process in which most people publish
is backwards next to print.


On the web, your design is set
before you figure out what you want to say.


This is true for the publishing they do at nytimes.com with their article template and it is true for the publishing you do when you type "happpppy birthday. I luv you" on the facebook page of a good friend. In print, every fiber of the page is yours to define, and on the web, the page belongs to Mark Zuckerberg or whoever coded your template.

You express yourself on the web by filling out text forms.


Another way is possible."


Free to use.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 11, 2013 3:17 AM



If you are looking for a free tool that allows you to easily create a visual portfolio of images and/or video clips, organized into categories, Dunked offers an excellent solution.


Simple, elegant and very straightforward to use, Dunked makes it easy to upload one or more pictures at a time and to arrange them on your portfolio page and into separate collections called Projects.


You can customize background, colors for all the elements on a page, fonts, logo and you can add a personalized About and Contact page.



My comments: Excellent visual portoflio tool for photographers, designers and artists of any kind. Compared to having an image or video collection on Pinterest, the difference is that the presentation style is much more elegant, and images are viewed by default at a much larger size. You also have fine control on individual text style, colors and other design elements. The absence of a bookmarklet further indicates that this tool has been designed with the photographer/artist/painter in mind and not to collect stuff found on the web.


Free to use.

Covertimes : le lecteur de titres de journaux mondiaux

Covertimes : le lecteur de titres de journaux mondiaux | MEDIATOOLS | Scoop.it

 

Covertimes permet de visualiser les couvertures des journaux du monde entier  et il s’améliore de jour en jour.

 

Maintenant ce service vient de passer à la vitesse supérieure. En effet, il est maintenant possible de créer un compte ce qui permet ensuite de sélectionner un ou plusieurs journaux (coup de coeur). Ainsi, on pourra retrouver les gros titres de nos journaux préférés un peu de la même façon qu’un lecteur de flux rss.

 

Pour les habitués des lecteurs de flux RSS, on retrouvera les fonctions “étoile” pour relire plus tard et les tris par billet non lu ou déjà lu. Il y a aussi la possibilité de lire les titres des journaux les plus populaires dans le pays que vous choisissez.

 

Une fois que vous aurez créé un compte, il vous suffira de passer dans une couveture de journal  et de cliquer sur le coeur pour mettre le journal en favoris. Ensuite, il suffit de cliquer sur l’icone RSS pour lire les gros titres du journal que vous avez mis dans vos coups de coeur.

 

Pour lire la news complète, il faudra aller sur le site internet du journal en question. Voilà donc un joli concurrent à google actualité et il faudra voir si ce service va pouvoir se financer avec la pub. En tout cas, ce site est passé dans ma barre des favoris à la section news.  C’est peut-être un comme ça qu’on conçoit un lecteur d’information RSS, il ne faut surtout pas dire que c’est du RSS.

If I were to recommend an online image/photo editor, that is fast, flexible and that provides all of the tools and features I generally need, I wouldn't hesitate a second in recommending Pixlr.


Not only this free web-based image editor is zippy and responsive as it can get, but it offers three alternative "versions" depending on your needs and skill level.


1) The Open Pixlr Express is the one I use the most, as it offers all of the basic functionalities I generally need, such as cropping, resizing, converting and basic retouching.


2) The Open Pixlr Editor is the advanced version which integrates all of the photo retouching tools you may need, as well as image layers, filters and more.


3) For non-technical people, kids and novices the Open Pixlr-o-Matic offers a perfect solution by integrating all of the key basic functions in an attractive and much simplified interface.


There is also a free mobile version both for Android and one for iPhone/iPad.


Free to use. No regsitration required.
