Just in time to celebrate Open Education Week, here comes a new initiative, the School of Open, a learning environment focused on increasing our understanding of “openness” and the benefits it brings to creativity and education in the digital age.

Developed by the collaborative education platform Peer to Peer University(P2PU) with organizational support from Creative Commons, the School of Open aims to spread understanding of the power of this brave new world through free online classes.

We hear about it all the time: Universal access to research, education and culture—all good things, without a doubt—made possible by things like open source software, open educational resources and the like.

But what are these various communities and what do they mean? How can we all learn more and get involved?

School of Open has rolled the conversation back to square one so that understanding the basics is easy. Through a list of new courses created by users and experts, people can learn more about what “openness” means and how to apply it. There are stand-alone courses on copyright, writing for Wikipedia, the collaborative environment of open science, and the process behind making open video.

These free courses start March 18 (sign up by clicking the “start course” button by Sunday, March 17):

These free courses are open for you to take at any time:

The approach at P2PU encourages people to work together, assess one another’s work, and provide constructive feedback. It’s a great place to learn how to design your own course, because the design process is broken down step-by-step, and course content is vetted by users and P2PU staff. The tutorial shows you how the process works.

Coming soon: Open source operating systems for smartphones and tablets

Coming soon: Open source operating systems for smartphones and tablets | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Built entirely using HTML5 and other open Web standards, Firefox OS is a Linux-based open source operating system for smartphones and tablet computers. It has been demonstrated on Android smartphones and the Raspberry Pi.

 

Samsung and Intel are cooperating on the development of Tizen, another open source phone project situated within the Linux Foundation. The first embodyment of the system in phones will be Bada.

Phones are in software walled gardens.

 

Most providers have proprietary operating systems for their phones and even Google's Android is not as open as some would like. 

Linux-based Firefox OS and Tizen/Bada to the rescue.

Il y a quelques jours, Opera a jeté l’éponge sur Presto et rejoint le mouvement Webkit. J’avoue avoir quelques doutes sur les conséquences stratégiques de ce mouvement pour Opera, mais ce n’est pas de cela que traite mon billet. Cette volte-face est bien entendu décevante. Décevante pour la communauté Mozilla car il semble bien que nous venons de perdre notre plus solide allié dans le combat pour la vie privée et le web ouvert. Décevante aussi car la raison avancée par Opera pour cet abandon est qu’il avait trop de développeurs qui développaient non pas des applications web mais des applications webkit.

 

 

C’est bien ce point qui m’inquiète, car il s’agit d’un réel danger pour l’avenir du web entier. À chaque fois qu’une application est développée à partir de standards ouverts, elle peut fonctionner sur tous les navigateurs standards – pas uniquement les navigateurs principaux, mais aussi des navigateurs moins connus ou des navigateurs qui n’existent pas encore. À l’inverse, par définition, une application webkit ne fonctionnera que sur les navigateurs webkit. Si vous êtes un développeur web, souvenez-vous de ces chiffres : cela signifie que votre application va rejeter environ 60% de ses utilisateurs potentiels. Et encore, ce chiffre suppose que 1/ tous les utilisateurs actuels d’Opera vont passer à webkit ; 2/ tous les navigateurs webkit sont compatibles bug-pour-bug et bizarrerie-pour-bizarrerie, ce qui est loin d’être le cas.
