OER Visualisation Project: Data Driven Journalism [day 16] #ukoer

By my calculation it’s day 16 of the OER Visualisation Project. Since day 11 and the Jorum UKOER ‘snowflake’ visualisation I’ve been going back to the refined data and trying to validate the set and understand the information it contains better. One of the things I did was upload the data from Google Refine to […]

OER Visualisation Project: Exploring UKOER/JORUM via OAI with Google Refine and visualising with Gource [day 11]

I should start with the result so that you can see if it’s worth doing this: The video shows the deposits from institutions and Subject Centres to Jorum tagged ‘ukoer’ from January 2009 to November 2011. In total over 8,000 deposits condensed into 5 minutes (there are more records, but these were the ones that […]

OER Visualisation Project: Beginnings of linking data from PROD to Google Spreadsheet and early fruit [day 8] #ukoer

One of my ambitions from Day 1 of the OER Visualisation project was to start linking PROD data in to Google Spreadsheets. Whilst this was primarily designed to help me with the project after speaking to some of the JISC/JISC CETIS people it sounds like it would help them and others.   Here’s a spreadsheet which […]

Bye-bye Protovis Twitter Community Visualizer: Hello D3 Twitter Community Visualizer with EDGESExplorer Gadget

The problem with starting my new OER Visualisation job is I’ve got less time to explorer my own little projects. This may be a blessing for some of my readers as it means I can do less waffling. So in brief: Tony came up with this brilliant solution for plotting twitter hashtag community graphs (it […]

OER Visualisation Project: Adding a bit of OAI-PMH collecting activity data in Google Spreadsheets [day 5] #ukoer #ooher

I told you I wasn’t intending on posting every day 😉 Yesterday ended up being quite frustrating with a number of dead-ends. It all started following on from Processing a resource feed to find frequency using Google Spreadsheets where I took Leeds Metropolitan University’s Repository feed from Yahoo Pipes to get activity data into a […]

OER Visualisation Project: Processing a resource feed to find frequency using Google Spreadsheets [day 3] #ukoer #ooher

I’m really not intending on posting each  day … honest (although some people would like that ;), but here’s another quick hack for getting a feed post frequency using Google Spreadsheets. Looking down Phil Barker’s UKOER pilot phase sources list (and getting over the shock of limited full repository feeds <sigh>) I noticed that Leeds […]

OER Visualisation Project: Adding a bit of SPARQL to make a UKOER map [day 2] #ukoer #ooher

I’m not intending on blogging about the OER Visualisation Project but I’ve got a new piece in the jigsaw worth sharing. Below should be an embedded map of JISC/HEA funded OER projects (well half of them anyway. If you visit the Yahoo Pipe which was used to generate this there are 51 projects listed but […]

40 days to let you see the impact of the OER Programme #ukoer [day 1]

One of my favourite subjects at school was Graphic Communication, which in those days was techie drawing with some other stuff. For as long as I can remember I’ve been interested in how data is presented, in fact the very first comment I got on this blog was from Tony Hirst after mentioning his Visual […]
