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 […]

OER Visualisation Project: What I know about #UKOER records on Jorum and OER Phase 1 & 2 [day 18]

51 Phase 1&2 projects were lead by 41 different institutions with 122 partners Projects were recorded as using 112 different technologies and 104 standards Jorum contains 9,502 unique records containing ‘ukoer’ of which 8,859 can be reconciled against institution names (including duplicates for records containing more than one subject category there are 9069) ukoer records […]

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 […]
