    Documento de Talis Aspire en el que se explica la configuración de un grafo educativo en las universidades británicas a partir de los principios de los datos enlazados (Linked Data):

    "This paper introduces the notion of the education graph, a conceptual representation of the resources and interconnections at the heart of the learning process. We present our latest work on the Talis Aspire family of products that, through the use of Linked Data principles and technologies, enables the assembly and application of a rich education graph based on learning resources used in tens of UK universities. Techniques for entity extraction and reconciliation across data sources are presented, in addition to descriptions of recommendation generation from portions of this education graph".

    Building a Linked Data Graph for Education

    En esta charla Tom Heath, Senior Research Scientist de Talis Education, presentará Talis Aspire application, que permite a los investigadores crear listas de recursos de aprendizaje para un curso, según los requisitos de la nube LOD. A partir de esta aplicación, se generan patrones y recomendaciones. La charla tendrá lugar en Semantic Technology and Business Conference (19-20 septiembre de 2012, Londres):

     "Just as a social and professional graph have emerged through Facebook and LinkedIn, so too is an education graph emerging describing connections between students, teachers and the learning resources they use. The Talis Aspire application allows university lecturers to create lists of learning resources for a particular course, which are then expressed according to the Linked Data paradigm. With the application now in use at one quarter of UK universities, the resulting data provides a rich insight into patterns of resource usage across the education sector. This talk will detail the mechanisms used to unify the various institutional graphs, exploiting the flexibility of the RDF data model and the Linked Data principles, before describing how this unified education graph is being used to provide value back to customers, in the form of analytics and recommendations.

    Key points:

    • Talis Aspire is based on Semantic Web technologies and Linked Data principles.
    • It is widely deployed across the UK Higher Education sector and used daily by large numbers of staff and students.
    • The aggregate view of the resulting data provides unique, cross-sector insights.
    • The techniques used to assemble this graph mirror those used to interlink the Web of Data as a whole.

    Museo Smithsonian. Web and New Media Strategy Process

    Fundado en 1846, el Smithsonian es el mayor museo y complejo de investigación del mundo, con 19 museos y galerías, el Parque Zoológico Nacional y nuevo instalaciones de investigación.

    El enlace lleva a la wiki pública que describe el proceso estratégico de web y nuevos medios del Smithsonian.

    Founded in 1846, the Smithsonian is the world's largest museum and research complex, consisting of 19 museums and galleries, the National Zoological Park and nine research facilities.

    This is the public wiki for the Smithsonian's Web and New Media strategy process:

    A few key guidelines

    From senior management, a few key guidelines for the process

    1. A clear focus on education
    2. Web strategy process has to be sensitive to the challenges of doing more with less.
    3. We need to show what’s over the horizon AND how to get there: demonstrate evidence of progress and show how to light the fuse of SI 2.0
    4. The Web, moving forward, needs to evolve new and efficient revenue streams (and cost-mitigation scenarios)
    5. Use the workshops as an opportunity to REALLY listen

    Goals: Aspirational and Achievable Smithsonian

    Aspirational Smithsonian: Define the optimum role for SI in next 100 years

    • Embrace new models of knowledge creation and dissemination
    • Provide better access to knowledge for geographically and demographically diverse audiences
    • Provide richer, more engaging means (storytelling) for different types of audiences to engage with our knowledge assets
    • Create opportunities for inter-disciplinary collaboration and learning
    • Identify new revenue sources to support the ever-growing programs

    Achievable Smithsonian: Define and prioritize tactical opportunities for rapid, high impact implementation

    • Leverage from among many initiatives currently incubating within SI
    • Identify initiatives that test / prove a new concept, to advance an idea, to attract funding, or to promote a culture of rapid innovation
    • Define the core competencies and optimum shared services model we need to be successful in the future.
