Neues Weblog von Jürgen Plieninger: “biboer - Open Educational Resources in Bibliotheken

"Mit dem Thema Open Educational Resources beschäftige ich mich seit Anfang 2014 und habe immer wieder im Weblog Fortbildung in Bibliotheken (bibfobi) darüber geschrieben. Besonders wichtige Einträge kamen auchauf netbib. Für die vielfältigen Entdeckungen gibt es den Twitter-Account@bib_oer, der hier im Blog rechts eingebunden ist. Irgendwie fehlte aber etwas zwischen bibfobi und bib_oer – und diese “mittlere Schiene” soll dieses Blog füllen."

"As usual, my partner in crime Leo Havemann and I decided that it could be a good idea to summarise our thoughts and research from the last few years in single post, and of course was not as simple as we thought because we have to dig deep in our minds and in our (not so well organised) archives to come with reasonable ideas, however, after weeks of dealing with how to structure this post, which aims at focusing in what we considerate crucial to improve open education Quality Assurance we came with some ideas, suggestions & critiques.

European Commission - Survey of digital education and copyright practices for learners and educators

"Most European learners and educators use a variety of works, including in digital format (digital texts, audio recordings, videos, software and others), for their learning or teaching / training / tutoring. Such works are used in the classroom, at home (self-education) and in distance learning.


Some of these works are protected by copyright and may in some cases be difficult to access or use. We are interested to hear what types of works you use in your daily learning or teaching / training / tutoring activities, how you obtain them, what you do with them and what restrictions, obstacles or uncertainties related to copyright you encounter."

Use of Open Data in Higher Education - Uso de datos abiertos en la Educación Universitaria

"Are you an academic? Have you used open data for your teaching? Can you please share your experience?
We are conducting a mini "research" to understand which portals, tools or repositories academics use to retrieve open datasets and how this information is being used in teaching and learning in Higher Education.
If you have any questions, please contact me in Twitter (@jatenas), I will publish the results of this survey as a blog post as soon as possible."

Es una encuesta acerca de las plataformas que se usan para la educación universitaria y aunque aún solo está en fase de encuesta, cuando se publiquen los  resultados será muy interesante saber los resultados de como se usa la información, que clase de información y que plataformas se usan para educar a los universitarios.

Inge de Waard: Why are #IRRODL articles such a pleasure to read? New free issue

"There are numerous EdTech related journals out there, but whenever I read the abstracts of most new IRRODL issues, I am intrigued. Is it my love for Canada which makes me more susceptible for possible news? Is it because I like the editors? Is it the determination to offer a platform to international authors that want to share research? Is it their website visuals using people from all ages, looks and combinations? Is it the mix between multiple EdTech options?... I do not know, but it sure happened again this morning while strolling through the abstracts and respectively some of the articles of this new IRRODL issue."

Jan Neumann: Open Educational Resources als universelle Lernmittelbibliothek | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"Der Begriff „Bibliothek“ kommt aus dem Griechischen und bezeichnet ursprünglich eine „Bücherkiste“. Im Laufe der Jahrhunderte hat sich die Bibliothek weiterentwickelt, aus der Kiste sind Gebäude geworden und neben Büchern kann man inzwischen weitere Medien wie z. B. Zeitschriften, Filme, E-Books und vieles mehr ausleihen. Auch wenn sich der Raum der Bibliothek zunehmend virtualisiert, beschreibt das Bild der Bücherkiste immer noch gut, was den Kern einer Bibliothek ausmacht: Eine Bibliothek ist eine Sammlung von verschiedenen Medieneinheiten."

David Wiley: On the Relationship Between OER Adoption Initiatives and Libraries

Ijad Madisch - Researchers: it's time to ditch the PDF

"The PDF is the digital equivalent to the desk drawer – a place where scientific results are hard to find and easily forgotten. And yet the PDF is still the default way for scholarly publishers to disseminate research on the web. 

To communicate research efficiently today, we need a new format for the digital age: one that’s open, easy to work with and social."
