#IWMW12 Data Visualisation Plenary/Workshop Resources

On Tuesday 19th June I’ll be presenting at the Institutional Web Manager Workshop (IWMW) in Edinburgh … twice! Tony Hirst and I are continuing our tour, which started at the JISC CETIS Conference 2012, before hitting the stage at GEUG12. For IWMW12 we are doing a plenary and workshop around data visualisation (the plenary being […]

OER Visualisation Project: Fin [day 40.5]

This is the final official post (a little late than expected) for the OER Visualisation Project. In this post I’ll summaries the work and try and answer the questions originally raised in the project specification. Over the course of the project there have been 17 blog posts, including this one, listed at the end and […]

OER Visualisation Project: The heart and pulse of #ukoer [day 40]

It’s the last day of the OER Visualisation Project and this is my penultimate ‘official’ post. Having spent 40 days unlocking some of the data around the OER Programme there are more things I’d like to do with the data, some loose ends in terms of how-to’s I still want to document and some ideas […]

OER Visualisation Project: The heart of #ukoer [day 37]

Last week I started to play with the #ukoer hashtag archive (which has generated lots of useful coding snippets to processes the data that I still need to blog … doh!). In the meantime I thought I’d share an early output. Embedded below is a zoom.it of the #ukoer hashtag community. The sketch (HT @psychemedia) […]

OER Visualisation Project: Exploring automated reporting using linked data and R/Sweave/R2HTML [day 36]

I’m in the final stretch of the OER Visualisation project. Recently reviewing the project spec I’m fairly happy that I’ll be able to provide everything asked for. One of the last things I wanted to explorer was automated/semi-automated programme reporting from the PROD database. From early discussions with CETIS programme level reporting, particularly of technology […]

OER Visualisation Project: Visualising CaPRéT OER tracking data [day 32] #ukoer

In May 2009 JISC CETIS announced the winners of the OER Technical Mini-Projects. These projects were designed: to explore specific technical issues that have been identified by the community during CETIS events such as #cetisrow and #cetiswmd and which have arisen from the JISC / HEA OER Programmes JISC CETIS OER Technical Mini Projects Call […]

OER Visualisation Project: Timelines, timelines, timelines [day 30] #ukoer

Following on Day 20’s Maps, Maps, Maps, Maps the last couple of days I’ve been playing around with timelines. This was instigated by a CETIS PROD ‘sprint day’ on Friday where Sheila MacNeill, Wilbert Kraan, David Kernohan and I put our thinking caps on, cracked the knuckles and look at what we could do with […]

OER Visualisation Project: How is OER being socially shared – postscript [day 30] #ukoer

A quick postscript to day 24 of the OER Visualisation project where I looked at how individual Jorum UKOER resources were being, or as was the case, not being shared on social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook et al. I did a similar analysis on HumBox records and using my method it was a similar […]

OER Visualisation Project: How is OER being shared – Quick look at Jorum and #ukoer Twitter archive [day 24]

This might be slightly off-topic for the OER Visualisation project, but I followed an idea, did – what I think are – some interesting things with an archive of tweets and thought I would share. This line of thought was triggered by a tweet from Terry McAndrew in which he asked: @mhawksey Have you a […]

OER Visualisation Project: Maps, Maps, Maps, Maps [day 20]

Dear Diary, it is now day 20 of the OER Visualisation Project … One of the suggested outputs of this project was “collections mapped by geographical location of the host institution” and over the last couple of days I’ve experimented with different map outputs using different techniques. Its not the first time I’ve looked at […]
