In 2020, people won’t be talking about online learning as such. It will be so integrated with teaching and learning that it will be like talking today about whether we should use classrooms.

Robin Good's curator insight, January 21, 2014 11:04 AM



Overview is a new free tool designed for investigative journalists and researchers interested in finding relevant information within large collections of text documents, from reports to social media tweets.


Overview greatly simplifies the task of analyzing, indexing and visualising large document collections in ways that can allow a journalist to identify relevant patterns and threads across thousands of different documents.


Overview is an open-source document mining system which allows you to upload thousands of documents either in PDF format, via the DocumentCloud or through a CSV spreadsheet file. These documents can be rapidly indexed, sorted and analyzed in order to present an organized visual overview of their contents. 


"Whether you are a journalist starting with thousands of pages of government documents, a reasearcher facing a huge archive, or a social media analyst starting with 100,000 posts, Overview will organize your documents into topics and sub-topics, and then visualize them -- so you can find exactly what you're looking for, instantly count the number of documents in each topic, or tag entire topics for further work."


Free to use. Open-source.

50+ Open Source Tools for Big Data | DATA SCIENCE REPORT - TODAY! | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Open source software tools have become all the rage, especially around big data and that is a GOOD thing. I have accumulated 3 lists that are very popular. Please let me know if you see things missing.

 

Fari writes: It was not easy to select a few out of many Open Source projects. My objective was to choose the ones that fit Big Data’s needs most. What has changed in the world of Open Source is that the big players have become stakeholders; IBM’s alliance with Cloud Foundry, Microsoft providing a development platform for Hadoop, Dell’s Open Stack-Powered Cloud Solution, VMware and EMC partnering on Cloud, Oracle releasing its NoSql database as Open Source.

Twitter Trends Help Researchers Forecast Viral Memes

Twitter Trends Help Researchers Forecast Viral Memes | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

What makes a meme— an idea, a phrase, an image—go viral? For starters, the meme must have broad appeal, so it can spread not just within communities of like-minded individuals but can leap from one community to the next. Researchers, by mining public Twitter data, have found that a meme's “virality” is often evident from the start. After only a few dozen tweets, a typical viral meme (as defined by tweets using a given hashtag) will already have caught on in numerous communities of Twitter users. In contrast, a meme destined to peter out will resonate in fewer groups.
