Just in time to celebrate Open Education Week, here comes a new initiative, the School of Open, a learning environment focused on increasing our understanding of “openness” and the benefits it brings to creativity and education in the digital age.

Developed by the collaborative education platform Peer to Peer University(P2PU) with organizational support from Creative Commons, the School of Open aims to spread understanding of the power of this brave new world through free online classes.

We hear about it all the time: Universal access to research, education and culture—all good things, without a doubt—made possible by things like open source software, open educational resources and the like.

But what are these various communities and what do they mean? How can we all learn more and get involved?

School of Open has rolled the conversation back to square one so that understanding the basics is easy. Through a list of new courses created by users and experts, people can learn more about what “openness” means and how to apply it. There are stand-alone courses on copyright, writing for Wikipedia, the collaborative environment of open science, and the process behind making open video.

These free courses start March 18 (sign up by clicking the “start course” button by Sunday, March 17):

These free courses are open for you to take at any time:

The approach at P2PU encourages people to work together, assess one another’s work, and provide constructive feedback. It’s a great place to learn how to design your own course, because the design process is broken down step-by-step, and course content is vetted by users and P2PU staff. The tutorial shows you how the process works.

Mapping Texts

Fruit de la collaboration entre la North Texas University et la Stanford University, le projet Mapping Texts, développé par Andrew J. Torget et Jon Christensen, est un outil d’interrogation et de recherches, portant sur un corpus composés de journaux numérisés. Et c’est une information de première importance : Mapping Texts n’est pas un projet de numérisation mais une interface permettant le traitement de données numérisées par ailleurs.

En l’occurrence, il s’agit d’une vaste collection de journaux texans, sortis des presses entre 1829 et 2008 (232.500 pages au total), et numérisés dans le cadre du Chronicling America project, un programme de numérisation de journaux, lancé par la Library of Congress et le National Endowment for the Humanities. Ces journaux sont accessibles depuis le Portal to Texas History de la North Texas University, à côté d’autres ressources intéressant l’histoire du Texas (photographies, livres d’école, cartes anciennes, journaux).

Numérisation à la BnF : comment la France se fait rouler

Les conditions de numérisation par ProQuest, finement négociées ?

Pour accélérer la numérisation de ses collections patrimoniales, la Bibliothèque nationale de France a noué des partenariats public-privé avec plusieurs firmes dans le cadre des Investissements d'avenir : ProQuest pour la numérisation des livres anciens, Believe et Memnon pour celle des fonds de 78 tours. Alors que ces accords ont soulevé une vague de protestations, Bruno Racine, le président de la BnF, défendait ces projets la semaine dernière dans les colonnes du Monde, en mettant en avant des arguments d'efficacité économique. Il avait reçu la veille le soutien du Ministère de la Culture, manifesté à l'occasion d'une réponse à la question parlementaire posée par le député Marcel Rogemont en octobre dernier.

Reorganizing a vast Archive: ITS - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Reorganizing a vast Archive: ITS - SPIEGEL ONLINE | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

By David Crossland in Bad Arolsen, Germany

 

Global Web of Memory

Reorganizing the database is one of the tasks of Susanne Urban, the ITS head of research, who joined the archive in 2009 after working in Yad Vashem, Israel's official memorial to the Holocaust. She says she expects the archive to reveal a plethora of "mosaic stones" to complete the picture of the genocide rather than alter it.

"Here you keep getting confronted with the global aspect of the Holocaust and survival, you see how it started in Germany, spread across Europe and with the documents about the survivors we see how a web of memory has spread across the whole world. Here you get an overview over everything. What makes it so harrowing is that you don't just get one aspect, you get them all. You sense this monolith that was built of pain and sorrow."

The work may be fascinating, but it can also be exhausting and saddening. Urban has only two research assistants on temporary contracts, which she says isn't enough.

La copie des archives ITS numérisée a été livrée aux Archives Nationales il y a plus d'un an mais n'est à ma connaissance toujours pas accessible aux chercheurs français.
