A New Website, Part Six - Drupal Modules

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Modules A module is some additional programming that gives your site some additional functionality. A number of optional modules come installed with the original Drupal download. In addition, you can get many more modules from the Drupal web site. The first step, then, is to look at the list of modules that comes with the Drupal download. So I select 'Site Building' -> 'Modules'. So I activate the module. This will happen for every module.

People are surprised when it’s complex. Someone has a general idea, but not informed enough to search. Sarah Crane , Dir., Federal Citizen Information Center, GSA., is going to talk about USA.gov.

Serverless Computing - An Innovative Approach to Software Development

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Serverless is an approach to software development for quickly building and deploying applications as a collection of loosely coupled modules and microservices. Serverless applications are woven or composed from a collection of loosely coupled, lightweight modules or microservices.

Education and Services Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

He is one the best role models I know of the kind of systems oriented, market-facing engineers that we increasingly need to help us tackle the highly complex, multi-disciplinary problems we are facing in the 21st century. Blossoms aims to develop a large free repository of video modules created by gifted volunteers from around the world to assist school teachers with math and science courses. Each module builds on prerequisite material that the class has already learned.

A sense of direction (3)

Dave Snowden

Complex. I’m going to assume past knowledge here by the way and I don’t have time to make all the linkages to prior posts so you may need to do a search or two if the material is familiar. How much of the recent past can we account for/model by the modulators we are aware of?

EPortfolios and Badges Workshop - #OEB14

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The idea was to provide a framework to describe the maturity of eportfolio initiatives, trying to describe the complex nature of learning, to go beyond the basic ''how to implement an eportfolio system'', to the point where an eportfolio will have a transformative effect.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

All-in-all the implication for L&D professionals has been to make their traditional offerings of carefully designed, time-consuming and often slowly developed structured modules, courses and programmes relevant to fewer and fewer stakeholder needs.

Learning Electron - Part 1

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Udemy Courses To begin I did a fair amount of searching on the web. It looked intriguing (and it's something to do this spring) but I wasn't quite ready for the extra complexity. Over the holidays this year I indulged myself in some guilt-free play: learning Electron.

A New Website, Part Eleven - Content Construction

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

First of all, how do define events: I needed to decide between the ' Calendar ' module and the 'CCK' module. How about the Calendar module? First I had to find it - once again, Drupal's awful search made what should have been a one-minute job a ten minute exercise in frustration. I don't understand the thinking behind the module pages in Drupal. And why doesn't the 'support forum' link to a module-specific support forum?

performance.learning.productivity: Getting to the Core of Learning Content in the Internet Age

Charles Jennings

Traditional Model – Content-centric learning The standard approach has been to expect people to learn all the content in a structured learning event – whether it’s an ILT or eLearning module, course or programme. There is an argument that we all need to learn less if we want to know more.

Current work includes weighted semantic tree similarity engines, semantic searching, weighted graph similarity engines, multi-core and cluster implementations, and matchmaking portals. Interface Between Modular Ontology and Applications Faezeh Ensan, UNB OWL-DL has challenges for representing complex ontologies. So ontology modules can be efficiently interchanged. You can get different perspectives to a module. Diagram of 'requirements' module).

A New Website, Part Seven - Converting The Data

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My website is a pretty complex website and it doesn't really map easily to what Drupal (or any other CMS) does. What will help is that in addition to the standard modules, which I covered in the previous installment, Drupal has hundreds of additional modules. Creating new node modules allows developers to define and store additional fields in the database that are specific to your site's needs. Installation for modules in Drupal seems straightforward.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I had designed OLe so that it used free-standing 'modules', and the IMS-LOM was perfect for this. They are now standard parts of LMSs, widely used in educational institutions (as a quick Google search will show), and invaluable to students for job applications, especially in creative fields.

Think anew, Act anew: Scenario Planning

Dave Snowden

Some time ago I outlined the basic principles of managing a complex system and promised to use them to explore a range of management issues. Given the time since I first introduced this topic (I planned a couple of weeks, but its panned out as the best part of half a year) I'd suggest a quick read of the original post, which concluded with three necessary, although not necessarily sufficient conditions for any strategy based on complexity theory.

A New Website, Part Two - Choosing Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

But I run a large and complex site, one which would be impossible to maintain merely by creating and uploading HTML files (even simple blogging websites are too complicated to maintain this way - sure, you could learn how to do it pretty easily, but then you'd be doing a lot of extra work every time you created a new post). A slow language means a slow CMS; a complex language means a complex CMS. The Drupal modules.

My Moodle Test

Xyleme

I didn’t believe it myself, so I did the following Google search: “Moodle and standards.” Its 18 months old, so I did a quick search of the Moodle forums to see what the status of the SCORM export feature is today. SCORM is only one of 12 standard learning modules in Moodle. Through our clients I can directly see the importance of SCORM and other standards for learning, especially as the scope and complexity of projects increase. Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc.

SADI Workshop

For some reason, we started with the SADI server, which is much more complex than the client would have been. Bio2RDF supports a faceted text search. a drug is not a disease’ - there is no way to express complex descriptions, eg. “f These allow us to form complex class expressions.

Serious games will move through various phases, from simple memorization games (such as versions of Jeopardy ) to simply branching storyline games to more complex gaming environments intended to stimulate deep knowledge and causal reasoning. We've been through this with learning objects, with learning design, and more: the problem of learning is not a search problem.

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Simple devices – from the One Laptop Per Child computer to the Asus Eee to the Nokia internet tablet to Apple’s iPhone now allow people to run complex software with very simple devices. Often user interaction is provided – the user might type a term into a search widget, for example – and often some form of processing is requested at the remote website. A test-only system is a coarse system of measurement for a complex achievement.

A New Website, Part Five - Basic Drupal Configuration

It took me a lot longer because my installation is quite a bit more complex - I am installing Drupal to manage several websites at once. My topics (which you can view , for now, on my current website) are based on predefined searches using regular expressions. Modules I'll cover this in Part Six.
