Video: Web 2.0 and the Study of History from Spring 2010 CNI meeting available

The last video from the Spring 2010 CNI meeting is now available; I’ve held off announcing it for a little while because it’s quite special, and I did not want it to be missed in the flood of other announcements.

This presentation describes a wonderful project at the University of Oregon which helps students to understand the uses of primary source materials, and also to think about their own roles as creators of such materials, and as prospective contributors to the collective social record. Technology comes into play, of course, but is very much in the background in some sense. It seems to me that the ideas here can be readily adapted and used by a wide range of institutions. If you are not familiar with this project, the video of this presentation is worth watching.

Here are the details:

Learning Commons video available from CNI

I’m pleased to announce a new video from CNI’s spring meeting, “Learning Commons: What’s Working.” The session includes three perspectives on assessment of learning or information commons. The speakers included John Culshaw, University of Colorado, Boulder; Anu Vedantham, University of Pennsylvania, and myself. I think you’ll find the content very informative if you are interested in these issues. Along with some other videos of meeting sessions, it is available on the CNI YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/cnivideo) and on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/channels/cni)

VIVO – National Conference and CNI conference video

If your institution is interested in increasing linkages among researchers, you might want to check out the VIVO project. The project organizers are offering a conference in August. We have had 2 sessions on the VIVO project at CNI meetings – one in 2007 when it was initially developed at Cornell, and one at our last meeting in April. Video from that session “VIVO: Enabling National Networking of Scientists” is available at:

New York Hall of Science
The first annual National VIVO Conference, Enabling National Networking of Scientists, will bring together scientists, developers, publishers, funding agencies, research officers, students and those supporting the development of team science. This two day conference will begin with workshops and tutorials for those new to VIVO, those implementing VIVO at their institutions, and those wishing to develop applications using VIVO. Invited speakers will present regarding the Semantic Web, Linked Open Data and the role of VIVO in support of team science. Panelists will discuss adoption and implementation findings. Feedback sessions will engage participants in requirements gathering and brainstorming regarding future network services. Presenters will discuss mapping, social networking, crowd sourcing, support for societies and other national network applications. Learn more at http://vivoweb.org/conference.
VIVO is an open source, open ontology, research discovery platform for hosting information about scientists, their interests, activities, and accomplishments. VIVO supports open development and integration of science through simple, standard semantic web technologies. Learn more at http://vivoweb.org. VIVO is funded by the National Institutes of Health, U24 RR029822.
