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. There’s also an open-source serverless platform, Apache OpenWhisk , on which IBM’s offerings are based, as well as those from other vendors. Serverless applications are woven or composed from a collection of loosely coupled, lightweight modules or microservices.

Learning Electron - Part 2

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

According to Google search, Angular is "a TypeScript -based open-source front-end web application framework led by the Angular Team at Google and by a community of individuals and corporations." Angular is integrated using three Node modules (all loaded using npm install ): electron-angular , electron-reload , and elegular. It also has a lot of interactivity, doing things like opening tabs and launching modal windows. There are two npm modules to install.

Learning Electron - Part 1

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Electron is open source, and learning it would make a great holiday project. The Udemy Courses To begin I did a fair amount of searching on the web. It is open source and runs on multiple platforms. Making an Application The first module in the course took us step-by-step through a standard process for making an application. Over the holidays this year I indulged myself in some guilt-free play: learning Electron.

“In a world where everyone can search and has apps, is a web portal relevant?,” Now people arrive through search. Also, it’s built to so its modules and content can be reused. Someone has a general idea, but not informed enough to search. The platform software is open source. Sarah Crane , Dir., Federal Citizen Information Center, GSA., is going to talk about USA.gov.

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

Charles Jennings

ON THE SURFACE THERE IS GENERAL SATISFACTION WITH EXISTING LEARNING INTERVENTIONS The vast majority of people attending learning events or learning interventions (classroom training, eLearning modules, virtual sessions) reported that they were satisfied with the event or intervention (in the survey 84% declared they were satisfied or very satisfied). That means an attitude of openness and collaboration - joining others on a journey of understanding.

progressive: communication based pedagogies, comment developed modules, drag and drop UIs, mobile platfors, innovative workflows, integration media, etc. The approach now is for Moodle HQ to focus on a platform, such that other people can build modules on top of it. The hub software is open source, install the plug, and it becomes a community hub.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

tools are a form of social networking, but for this module we’re going to focus on “ego-centric&# social networks, those that are focused on individuals, as opposed to networks that build up around objects, such as Delicious, Flickr, Slideshare, etc. Now open to anyone, you will still find that Facebook is the preferred network for Millenials who see the encroachment of Boomers and, to a lesser extent, Gen X into the network as cause for some alarm.

Education and Services Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

One of the more interesting projects sponsored my LINC is Blossoms - Blended Learning Open Source Science or Math Studies. 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.

But it was brilliantly engineered; I learned tons by digging through the source, learning how all the Javascript worked, and adapting it for my own purposes. I also took a massive open email course (MOEC?) MERLOT was started in 1997 and opened up in 2000.

What Universities Must Learn About Social Networks

Jay Cross

How do I search for information?”. Some schools are comfortable encouraging students, faculty, and adminstratoin to use consumer apps on the open web. It simplifies and streamlines the transactional aspects of administration, it encourages open communication and shared decision-making, and it provides a learning ecosystem that enables students to co-learn in order to supplement the formal aspects of their education.

A New Website, Part Two - Choosing Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

So I am looking at free and open source software. Though that said, even if I had a budget, I would be going down the free and open source route. But because the open source CMSs tend to be better. Opting to go the open source route still left me hundreds of choices. But while it's very similar to Drupal, without the development community there are not as many modules to choose from; I would have to write a lot more code myself.

Think anew, Act anew: Scenario Planning

Dave Snowden

Its also worth noting that the evidence for the success of scenario planning is largely anecdotal, and the anecdotes are from restricted sources in the main Shell. I have seen excellent cases where a scenario planning session can open people up to new possibilities, sensing that a different future is possible from the current imaginings of fear that can haunt people in difficult circumstances. Within SenseMaker™ three modules interpret the data.

Another table from a different source may list the same treatments, with outcomes and side effects. We merge data by specifying more than one URI (source). Bio2RDF supports a faceted text search. Instead of retrieving websites, it retrieves sources where it finds that pattern. Open Peller with.jar or.sh, check consistency of one consistent and one inconsistent ontology, classify an ontology, realize an ontology, compute a SPARL query on it.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. This enabled a more fine-grained presentation oflearning content than traditional sources such as textbooks and universitycourses. Second, it created the idea that these content modules orchunks were sharable.

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. emerged with the release of lightweight open source frameworks such as Ruby on Rails.

For example, one of the portal’s first offerings, the Joint Individual Augmentee Module, will replace a week-long resident course that was offered in Suffolk, Va. A particularly unique feature of the new portal is that it’s open not just to servicemembers, but also to others who will work alongside them in integrated operations.
