What Client Must Look for While Choosing a Virtual Repository

Adaptive Path

That is how, virtual repositories eliminated the requirement to finish the whole transaction merely throughout face-to-face negotiations. Audit reports generated on a regular basis help to follow the activity in the virtual repository. Various search and upload instruments also simplify and accelerate the project execution via the repository. Storage and exchange of the confidential data on the Internet are becoming an indispensable demand of the modern business realm.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

First , we created a repository on GitHub. We did this by 'cloning' the original Fastpages repository. Then we updated the repository by 'merging' an automatically-generated 'pull request'. Second , the repository automatically generated a website for us using GitHub pages.

How to Overcome Content Management Challenges at Scale

Xyleme

Their computers get wiped, and those files are gone because they were never put in a central repository. And the very first step in the process is to get everything in a single repository. Every organization runs into content management challenges when they reach a certain size.

Boxing gRSShopper

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It checked all my boxes: It was relatively recent When you started it, Apache and MySQL would start up on their own There was a Dockerfile and GitHub repository so I could clone it and work from source It had good documentation telling me how to run it You see, what I really needed was two things.

Blockchain and Public Health Solutions

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Instead of gathering raw data into a central location for processing, the algorithm or query, - a kind of smart contract, - should be sent to the repositories and be processed there. Raw data must always remain in its permanent repository under the control of the repository owners.

Be that person

Euen Semple

It occurred to me yet again recently how almost all successful attempts that I have seen to shift intranets from being passive content repositories to active places where work really gets done, and great conversations take place, have been down to one person.

Stop Creating Content Landfills – Reuse & Recycle Content to Improve Sustainability

Xyleme

Not having a single, centralized content repository across the organization makes it impossible to leverage or reuse existing content — if you can’t find it, how can you possibly reuse it?

What will universities monetize in the future?

George Siemens

If I was tasked with designing a course from scratch, I would start by searching repositories, rather than creating any new content. Universities do more than teach. Research is one of the most important activities of higher education. From the lens of students and society, however, the teaching and learning process and what it costs, is the primary focus.

supporting workplace performance

Harold Jarche

Allison Rossett states that “ … performance support is a repository for information, processes, and perspectives that inform and guide planning and action. Many workplace performance issues cannot be solved through training, such as: Poor communications.

Learning: an anthro-complexity perspective

That becomes a repository of learning and allows us to continue to evolve the system.

Photos you can use

Harold Jarche

A friend asked about online repositories of photos that can be used for academic presentations and I mentioned several sources. Online photo repositories (check usage rights for each): Free images for your inspiration, reference and use in your creative work, be it commercial or not! I realized after sending the list that many others may not know about the wealth of resources available, especially for teaching and learning.

Susan Hildreth on libraries in the digital age

David Weinberger

She is quite frank about the future of libraries as works gets digitized, suggesting that physical copies of books might be archived in regional offsite repositories. At the Library Innovation Lab blog, there’s a podcast interview I did a couple of weeks ago with Susan Hildreth , director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services , a federal agency that supports libraries and museums.

The Learning and Development industry, like any other, has been inundated with new technologies and tools for learning.

Advice for the UNESCO OER Mapping Project

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

If course, this discussion is centered around OER *repositories* and not only the resources themselves. Consequently, mappings will need to describe repository properties. I am thinking at this point that the OER initiative should be drawing from the experiences of OER repositories and repository indices that already exist. Email written as advice to the UNESCO OER mapping initiative.

What is a Component Content Management System?

Xyleme

With Xyleme, every piece of content is in one repository. A Component Content Management System (CCMS) is transformational for organizations with large-scale content creation and maintenance needs. But before we discuss why you need it, let’s explain what it is.

How It Could Work

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For this to work they would this need to be directly available within a student's learning environment, not lingering in some repository waiting for an instructor to discover and adapt them. I'm just going to offer a short post today as I develop some aspects of gRSShopper.

If we actually look at Severance's GitHub repository , we can see that it has been forked 1.2 The repository has 56 contributors. Looking at his other repositories, I see crossover from other projects, including Sakai.

A Few Words on ePortfolios

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

An e-portfolio is a collection of digital materials uploaded by a student to an e-portfolio repository; the repository owners can then make this material available publicly to prospective employers or clients, as requested by the student. This will become important as employers will over time rely less on tests and formal assessments, and will instead look for tangible evidence of personal achievement in web-based repositories.

Assessing online assessments

Clark Quinn

I recall hearing of, but haven’t yet seen, a seriously threatening repository of such. Yes, there are learning object repositories, but they’re not yet populated with a rich suite of contextualized practice. Good formal learning consists of an engaging introductions, rich presentation of concepts, annotated examples, and meaningful practice, all aligned on cognitive skills.

How Not to Adopt an LCMS

Xyleme

Store content in a single repository so that it is easy to search, find, and reuse. Modern learning organizations understand that, in order to provide learners with the resources they expect (such as content personalization, mobile learning, microlearning, and just-in-time support) new technology tools are no longer a “nice to have” — they’re a necessity.

beyond civil society, governments, and markets

Harold Jarche

Online repositories make studies available months ahead of journals. Binary thinking is an easy sell. It appeals to our emotions which we developed as children. Binary thinking blinds us. It’s not black and white, or right and wrong, or even Left and Right.

Open Education Resources bill in Brazil

David Weinberger

It also deals with repositories for such OERs. Carolina Rossini passes along the following: Today, the Sao Paulo State Legislature Representative, Mr. Simao Pedro, assisted by his team, specially Lucia F. Pinto, and the OER-Brazil Project, has introduced an OER bill to regulate the educational resources developed directly and indirectly (contracts for products or services or public purchases) by that state, and determine that an open license should be applied (CC-BY-NC-SA).

Content systems not content packages

For one, it was supporting different business products from the same content repository. In a conversation last week (ok, an engagement), the topic of content systems came up. Now this is something I’ve argued for before , in several ways.

Homo Narrans: archetypes

Dave Snowden

Imposing some universal set of categories on human meaning is a mistake, our approach allows for a pattern to emerge from the interaction of people with the rich narrative repository of their day to day existence.

What is a Learning Content Management System (LCMS)?

Xyleme

Learning Content Management Systems work great for large companies that manage multiple brands, locations, or departments, for big transportation and manufacturing corporations that need on-the-job references that their building teams can access, there content must always be accurate, up to date, and in a single repository, so they’re also a prime candidate. There’s a lot of confusion surrounding Learning Content Management Systems.

I’m very proud to announce that the Harvard Library Innovation Lab (which I co-direct) has launched what we think is a useful and appealing way to browse books at scale. This is timed to coincide with the launch today of the Digital Public Library of America. Congrats, DPLA!!!).

A Framework for the Safe Management of Digital Identities and Data

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Instead of gathering raw data into a central location for processing, the algorithms or queries should be sent to the repositories and be processed there. Raw data must always remain in its permanent repository under the control of the repository owners. Data repositories must obtain explicit consent from the subjects whose data they hold for the execution of an algorithm against their data; the vetted algorithms should be made available and understandable to subjects.

Personalization for Knowledge Workers

Xyleme

The objective is to help the employee cut through the corporate knowledge repository and match the content with the unique needs of each employee. It engenders a “living” repository where problems are fixed as soon as they are identified, and gaps filled as they become apparent. User generated content will increasingly become a key part of a living repository. This is the 2 nd in a 3 part series addressing the impact of personalization in the education and training markets.

The Power of Reflection in an Ever-Changing World

Charles Jennings

Initially started as a weekly email for new hires, the program is now firm-wide and provides a key repository of reflective stories and experiences. (I wrote the original piece this article is based on for Training Industry Quarterly in Winter, 2012. I feel it still speaks to a key issue for building high performance that has barely been touched by many L&D professionals).

eLearning Learning

Clark Quinn

As part of a Personal Learning Network for those in elearning, such a searchable repository is quite useful. Just to note that Learnlets is now part of the blogs recorded in Tony Karrer’s eLearning Learning. Tony’s made an architecture that allows blogs and articles on a particular topic to be aggregated and searched. I used it as a recommended resource for the upcoming Foundations Intensive elearning introduction event as part of the Learning Solutions conference.

Xyleme

This original content, or “instance,” is stored in a central repository, where users on any device can access it and create new versions and new material based off of the original. Bryan Chapman is renowned for teaching world-class organizations how to implement successful single-source learning development strategies. On September 12 th , Bryan practiced what he has been preaching all along during a webinar attended by nearly 1000.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

Charles Jennings

Yet even this ‘sacred cow’ of formal training is being challenged with some companies updating on-boarding processes and, instead of hours or days of classroom induction, are providing new recruits with tablets stuffed with helpful information and access to resources such links to expert locators on intranets and repositories of stories to help new employees navigate the networks and alcoves of their new organisation or new role within their existing organisation. Most people get it.

The Identity Challenge: On the Internet, Nobody Knows You're a Dog

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The basic premise underlying OPAL is that instead of gathering raw data into a central location for processing, raw data must always remain in its permanent repository under the control of the repository owners. Open, vetted algorithms or queries to validate identity credentials are sent to the data owners’ repositories and processed there.

Blockchain Can Reshape Financial Services… But it Will Take Significant Time and Investment
