For quite some times over the past year, I have taken advantage of small projects at work, to update my blog about them. Each time I set out to do something, even if I have done it a thousand times in the past, I always search a bit online to get up to date with… Read More Metadata Mappings & Crosswalks
I am still poking around the Data Mining theory, continuing my read of Principles of Data Mining. Seems like the math keep getting more and more complicated as we go, but luckily there are some terrific appendices that help a lot. So, there goes another “half-baked” post containing less facts and more fiction. First thing… Read More Metadata & Classification Algorithms
I have been working with metadata with the biggest part of my professional life so far and I really plan to continue working with them (old habits die hard I guess). My experience so far revolved mainly around application profile design, application profile implementation and metadata assessment. In my PhD I did use some simplified statistics… Read More Data Mining 101
Some time ago, I decided to go over some key technologies that exist in the digital learning field. Being a part of the wider ecosystem, working mainly with the information management part, I felt that it would be nice to structure some background knowledge on the tools and software used within the digital learning domain.… Read More A Coherent Story on Web Services & Related Abbreviations
I am working with the ISO/IEC 19788-1:2011 these days, reading and taking notes to see if and how it can be adopted for specific projects. The other day I downloaded the freely available version mentioned above, printed it, took my highlighters and started reading through. The document starts with some introductory information and also by providing “Terms… Read More Making Sense of ISO/IEC 19788 (part I)
I have been working in the education field for quite some time now. I am mainly working with metadata but I have also been quite involved in managing technical work related to learning repositories and related apps or services for multiple audiences (K-12, adult education, etc.). For that matter, I know very well that keeping… Read More Standards & Technologies for Digital Learning (part I)
The other day, I was researching a bit on available standards that can be used to describe e-books. I found myself looking at the MLR (Metadata for Learning Resources) and the LRMI (Learning Resource Metadata Initiative). I found some interesting resources online but only a handful of blogposts that could help someone that faces the… Read More e-Learning Standards: MLR or LRMI?
