The SENS "Assembling your digital toolkit" project

The SENS "Assembling your digital toolkit" project | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it

Starting Monday August 6, 2012, all staff (and some doctoral students!) in the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University are together undertaking a 12 week project in developing digital literacy. Each week we will be completing a task to develop a skill, explore an idea or master a set of tools.

 

This Scoop.it is a collection of resources used in the project.

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it
How much time do we put into the design of the assessment plans in our online courses? Is most of that time focused upon summative graded assignments that factor into the course grade? Or, do they also include opportunity for practice and informal feedback?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 24, 2:46 PM

They make sense, but ask teachers about authentic assessment. It is still thought of as an isolated activity where the student does their project alone. That is not the way of the world and has not been forever. We work and learn together. Why not assess together?

Dr Seroya Crouch's curator insight, February 25, 12:09 AM

Good ideas for better assessment of online courses!

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, February 25, 6:19 AM

Wonderful article that challenges us to think through the online assessments and their prep!

Big Data: Large Dataset Curation & Sharing with AcademicTorrents

Robin Good's curator insight, February 3, 5:13 AM



AcademicTorrents is a new web service which allows any organization owning large datasets (no size limits) to easily distribute them without needing a dedicated infrastructure.


The brainchild of Joseph Cohen and Henry Lo, two PhD students working at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, Academic Torrents facilitates the job of researchers, journalists and information analysts in finding, accessing, curating and downloading large-size datasets.


Technically-speaking AcademicTorrents is a bittorrent-type redundant high-speed network and a full distributed system for sharing enormous datasets. As a P2P system it doesn't require intermediate servers, is also fully scalable, secure, fault-tolerant and can act as a reliable repository for data allowing fast downloads.


Users can also search the full index, and can create curated datasets collections containing any kind of files and which can be downloaded as a full bundle.


This type of system could prove to be an excellent resource for libraries storing digital papers as they would store books, and for simplifying the distribution requirements of any organization needing to publish, curate and share large datasets.


"A robust distributed replication design allows libraries to utilize this system as their backbone. Providing fault tolerant hosting of curated data for a university, research lab, or home library.

...Also, this system can be used as the foundation of a new open-access publishing system where libraries manage data instead of licenses for external data sources.
"
