Kim Flintoff's curator insight, April 29, 2013 7:28 PM

Who's driving the MOOC juggernaut?  Who's interests are served by the developments in this area?  Somewhere a price is being paid - what is it and who's paying?

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 30, 2013 2:53 PM

I think MOOCs have an enormous potentinal to educate the disenfranchised.  The potential for good in this open resource oriented sharing of knowledge is enormous.  The potential for immediate dollar profit?... no so much.  In the US most students simply don't have the discipline or desire to educate themselves using the remarkable resources gathered in any Mooc.  I don't see this as displacing traditional Hire Ed in the U.S.   


I think of MOOCs as bread upon the waters, the ripple effect of educating the world will take awhile to build, but should eventually create significant waves of improvement for all.  (Call me PollyAnna, but I see Moocs as a manefestation of abundance that can do real good in the real world.)

Science Europe Position Statement: Principles on the Transition to Open Access to Research Publications (April 2013) | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

 

Open Access, as defined in the Berlin Declaration, means unrestricted, online access to peer-reviewed, scholarly research papers for reading and productive re-use, not impeded by any financial, organisational, legal or technical barriers. Ideally, the only restriction on use is an obligation to attribute the work to the author..

For people pushing change, data can be precious. But scientists are unbiased, right?

While the "muzzling" of Canadian government scientists is worrying to some democracy advocates, citizen science activism is one movement that is providing greater transparency.

"I think there's definitely an opportunity for citizens concerned in this area to speak up and speak out," says Tyler Sommers, coordinator at Democracy Watch.

MOOC Mania: Debunking the hype around massive open online courses - The Digital Shift

MOOC Mania: Debunking the hype around massive open online courses - The Digital Shift | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

That’s when the enormous hype began about massive open online courses, better known as “MOOCs.” Since then, Thrun and his fellow lab professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng have founded education organizations that offer free online classes. Thrun’s start-up is called Udacity (in part, a takeoff on the word “audacious”), and Koller and Ng’s is Coursera. In December 2011, in response to Stanford’s initiatives, MIT launched its own effort, called MITx (short for “Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange”), and a few months later joined forces with Harvard, drolly changing the name of the organization to edX. A consortium of British universities has also created its own MOOC platform, Futurelearn. So far, more than 90 universities worldwide have teamed up with one or more of these MOOC providers, prompting the New York Times to crown 2012 as “The Year of the MOOC.”

What’s love got to do with Open Access? Un débat sur l’accès libre aux revues de sciences sociale

What’s love got to do with Open Access? Un débat sur l’accès libre aux revues de sciences sociale | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

Par Sabine Partouche et François Siino - En février dernier, plusieurs messages se sont croisés dans les boîtes mail autour des questions de l’Open Access (accès ouvert), reflétant visiblement des positions contradictoires face à une recommandation européenne. Celle-ci datait de juillet 2012 et allait dans le sens d’un accès ouvert aux résultats de la recherche scientifique financée sur fonds publics. Le premier appel, émanait du portail Cairn, inquiet des conséquences d’une mise à disposition gratuite trop rapide, et plaidait pour un régime spécial pour les revues de sciences humaines et sociales leur permettant de différer aussi longtemps que nécessaire cette ouverture. Au moment de sa diffusion, cette motion avait recueilli les signatures de 85 revues de SHS. Quelques jours plus tard, une tribune intitulée « Qui a peur de l’open access ? » était publiée dans Le Monde tandis qu’un deuxième appel lancé par Open Edition invitait les revues à ne pas signer la première motion, arguant qu’il s’agissait là d’ « un calcul à trop court terme face aux potentiels gains scientifiques, pédagogiques et, in fine, à la démocratisation de l’accès au savoir ». Le site « I love Open Access » recueillait à son tour des signatures[1]…

Open Science Award

ECMLPKDD 2013 will promote openness in science by awarding an Open Science Award to authors that provide the most open access to software and data used in papers published at the conference.

Traditionally, a submission to a conference consists of a paper, and not of software and data. This can unnecessarily limit the impact of scientific research. ECMLPKDD 2013 wishes to promote reusability of software and data, as well as to improve reproducibility of scientific results

L'offre des archives ouvertes dans le monde arabe : recensement et évaluation

L'offre des archives ouvertes dans le monde arabe : recensement et évaluation | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

This study presents the state of open archives in the Arab world and their characteristics from an analytical framework inspired from similar works in the Western world. What emerges from this study is that the availability of open archives and the involvement of Arab researchers in submitting works in these repositories remains very limited. Moreover, the content of some archives has a vocation of a digital library more than an open archive. Therefore, it would be interesting to improve the quality and quantity of the archives to contribute to the evolution of scientific research in the Arab world and a better visibility of Arab researchers and research institutions.

Cette étude dresse un état des archives ouvertes dans le monde arabe et leurs spécificités à partir d’une grille d’analyse inspirée des travaux similaires dans le monde occidental. Ce qui ressort de cette étude, c’est que l’offre des archives ouvertes arabes est très faible et l’implication des chercheurs arabes dans le dépôt dans ces archives reste limitée. D’autant plus, le fonds de certaines archives a plus une vocation de bibliothèque numérique que d’archive ouverte. De ce fait, il serait intéressant d'améliorer la qualité et la quantité de ces archives pour contribuer à l'évolution de la recherche scientifique dans le monde arabe et à une meilleure visibilité des chercheurs et des institutions de recherche arabes.

Open access science news is mostly good, with a bit of ugly

Open access science news is mostly good, with a bit of ugly | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it
Open access is expanding and just may solve some of the peer review's problems.

 

If only Our Science Journal Grade 1 didn't have such high subscription rates.PearlsofJannah اللؤلؤ من الجنة

To see the papers that describe the latest science results, you need to have a subscription to the journals they're published in (or at least your library does). That leaves most of the public, and even many scientists, on the wrong side of a paywall from knowing the latest goings on in their fields.

To help speed the flow of scientific information, the National Institutes of Health has mandated a policy where any papers derived from research it funds are made public within a year of their publication; the Obama administration is now trying to expand that policy so it covers all federal agencies. Meanwhile, lots of journals have been founded that are open access from the start—as soon as a paper is available, anyone can download a copy.

Pharma vs The European Medicines Agency – the case of InterMune

Pharma vs The European Medicines Agency – the case of InterMune | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

Like AbbVie, described in my last post, a second American company, InterMune, has taken legal action to prevent or restrict the European Medicines Agency from disclosing certain clinical trial data after a medicine is approved for marketing.

On 4th March a federal appeals court upheld the conviction of the former chief executive of InterMune, W. Scott Harkonen, relating to the dissemination of false and misleading statements about the results of a clinical trial of the medicine Actimmune. (Mr Harkonen may launch further appeals.)

Open-access policies and academic freedom | The Occasional Pamphlet

I very occasionally hear expressed a concern about the Harvard open-access policy that it violates some aspect of academic freedom. The argument seems to be that by granting a prior license to Harvard, faculty may be forced to forgo publication in certain venues.  Our rights as scholars to determine the disposition of particular articles would thus be assailed by the policy.

A requirement to publish or refrain from publishing in particular venues would certainly infringe on academic freedom. But the Harvard policy leaves choice of whether and where to publish fully in the hands of authors. The policy allows for the license to be waived for any article at the sole discretion of the author. (Obtaining a waiver involves filling out a web form at the OSC web site with some metadata about the article. The process takes about 20 seconds.) This “opt-out” provision makes the policy consistent with libertarian principles. The policy manifests “libertarian paternalism” in the sense of Sunstein and Thaler.

California Pushes for Public Access to Taxpayer Funded Research - Creative Commons

California Pushes for Public Access to Taxpayer Funded Research - Creative Commons | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

As we mentioned last week, California has introduced AB 609, the California Taxpayer Access to Publicly Funded Research Act. The bill, sponsored by Assembly Member Brian Nestande, would require that research articles funded through California tax dollars be made available online for free no later than 12 months after publication in a peer-reviewed journal. A letter from the University of California may have prompted the Assembly to modify the text of the draft bill to extend the embargo to 12 months (instead of six), and to include a provision exempting the University of California and California State University from the state agencies that must comply with the legislation, if enacted.

Can citizen science activism come to the rescue? | rabble.ca | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

A group of 36 students in Western University's Master of Arts in Journalism class has spent three months studying and reporting on citizen science. Over the next three weeks, we will be sharing our citizen science stories -- how it emerged and evolved, where it stands now and where it's going. We will be tackling scepticism about whether or not it is indeed science, looking at the effectiveness of gathering "big data" and introducing activists who are using citizen science to bring attention to their causes. To view all of the articles in this special series thus far, visit our Citizen Science page.

Appui à la publication scientifique dans le domaine des technologies de l’information et de la communication pour l’enseignement (TICE) et de la formation ouverte et à distance (FOAD) - | Science ouverte - Open science | Scoop.it

La recherche en technologies de l’information et de la communication pour l’enseignement (TICE) et en formation ouverte et à distance (FOAD) est pluridisciplinaire. Elle fait notamment appel aux sciences de l’éducation, aux sciences de l’information et de la communication, à l’informatique, à la psychologie (en particulier à la psychologie cognitive), à la sociologie, aux sciences politiques, aux sciences économiques (en particulier à l’économie du développement), aux sciences juridiques et à la philosophie. Ce multi-référencement est source de richesse mais aussi de fragmentation. S’il existe des laboratoires de recherche capables en Europe et au Canada de faire vivre ces croisements disciplinaires, le constat est qu’au Sud, la recherche a du mal à se structurer, la multi-disciplinarité devenant, faute de moyens, un handicap.
