Hooked on DataIf you can't let go of data (as I couldn't) I've collected some data-related links in my OLDaily newsletter just for the data die-hards. Have a look here.
Heading into the CloudIt was decentralized and distributed computing that allowed MOOC companies like Coursera and EdX to serve thousands of students at a time. Today, though, this capacity is available to everyone.
The joke is that “the cloud” is just shorthand for “someone else’s computer.” The conceptual challenge is that it doesn’t matter whose computer it is, that it could change any time, and that we should begin to think of “computing” and “storage” as commodities, more like “water” or “electricity”, rather than as features of a type of device that sits on your desktop.
This week's ActivityThis week we'll be talking to Tony Hirst from the Open University. I've been following Tony's work with the cloud and cloud-based data for a number of years now. Be prepared for fascinating!
Applications, Algorithms and Data: Open Educational Resources and the Next Generation of Virtual Learning Oct 29, 2018 video
Using examples such as virtual containers and actionable data books, I sketch the future for the next generation of OERs as a distributed and interactive network of applications, algorithms and data. My presentation starts at 1:18:00 in the video.URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4680&v=MotTQd9U0sY
Using OPML Oct 29, 2018 video
Quick (13 minutes) description of how to use the E-Learning 3.0 OPML feed (at https://el30.mooc.ca/course_feeds.xml ) to collect the list of feeds being shared by course participants and read all their new poss in your feed reader - I demonstrate how to import OPML for both Feedly and for gRSShopper.URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NNLU10VitQ
Harvesting Feeds on gRSShopper Oct 29, 2018
A quick look at me approving feed and harvesting them. This is the manual process; it can all be automated, as I'll show in a later video.URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1pK-rQeAI4&feature=youtu.be

Today I took advantage of that extra hour when the clocks went back and everyone else was asleep and got stuck into some more of the #el30 materials. I started by reading this article/page on Linked Open Data and thought maybe I could contribute.
Please note: these posts were added to the newsletter using the harvester. Apologies if I missed you. Don't forget, you can submit your feed here!. The 'Submit Feed' link also appears on the course menu. We've had a number of submissions so far (and I've added the feeds where I've found posts to list for this week). You can see them on the Feeds Page.
