News: The Hyperlinked Library MOOC Fall 2013 Announced

News: The Hyperlinked Library MOOC Fall 2013 Announced | staying in the library hub | Scoop.it

In an effort to share insight regarding some of the latest trends in the information profession with individuals from across the globe, the San José State University School of Library and Information Science (SJSU SLIS) will be offering a massive open online course (MOOC) in the fall.

 

The open online course will bring individuals from diverse backgrounds and geographic regions together in an interactive online learning environment. SJSU SLIS award-winning instructors will spearhead this professional development opportunity. The MOOC is available to the public for free, and anyone can register. MOOC students will not receive college credit.

 

The information school’s first open online course, the Hyperlinked Library MOOC, will begin September 3, 2013, and it explores how libraries are using emerging technologies to serve their communities.

 

The term “Hyperlinked Library” describes how our connected world is transforming 21stCentury libraries into participatory, playful, and user-centered spaces while upholding traditional values. It encompasses both physical and virtual space, as well as many types of libraries.

I signed up for this. I hope it is good. It is a fascinating topic that is relevant to all libraries.

HSB RGB Arduino Color Library tutorial

HSB RGB Arduino Color Library tutorial | staying in the library hub | Scoop.it

Screens speak of color in terms of 3 channels: Red, Green and Blue. Humans tend to think of colors in 3 channels too, but the channels that seem more natural usually are Hue, Saturation and Brightness. Here is an arduino color library so you too can specify colors by their hue! We use this code in our RGB Rainbow Sun and HSB RGB Sketcher. If you need help learning how to install libraries in arduino check out this thorough Adafruit tutorial. We use this library to draw colors on LCD screens, for example see the HSB RGB Sketcher Tutorial and onto RGB LEDs in the Sun Kit.

Sharron L. McElmeel on Creating an Author/Illustrator Site That Appeals to Teachers & Librarians

Sharron L. McElmeel on Creating an Author/Illustrator Site That Appeals to Teachers & Librarians | staying in the library hub | Scoop.it

McElmeel has written about the books and their creators, taught educators to enjoy and use the books in classrooms and libraries, built webpages to showcase the books and the authors and illustrators, and in general become an avid promoter of literacy.

Along the way, she has watched young readers utilize websites, and observed educators navigating the World Wide Web, seeking information useful to their work. She has developed some opinions about books, and periodicals, and websites.
