Here are my slides for today’s presentation at the ALT-C conference at The University of Warwick. Advertisements
An interesting post by Young Hahn on map hacking has given me some food for thought with respect to the redesign of the OER Evidence Hub. This article led me to another, Take Control of Your Maps by Paul Smith. If I was a better programmer I could probably put some of the ideas to work […]
Here are my notes from today’s OU seminar which offers a survey of major online humanities datasets and some of the tools available for visualising them. Speakers: Dr Elton Barker (Classical Studies Department, The Open University, and Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Freie Universität Berlin) Ms Mia Ridge (PhD student, The Open University, and Chair of […]

I think it would be really interesting to experiment with a few of these in the context of the redevelopment of the OLnet Evidence Hub in the OER Hub project. Modest Maps could be used instead of Google Maps to provide geolocation for organisations, […]
Here are the slides from my presentation at the Third Visual Learning Conference.

Now, obviously many artworks are themselves the expression of philosophical or religious sentiment, and I’m not so focused on there (valuable as they are). Rather, it’s the attempt to […]
I’ve been looking into different online visualization tools with a view to using the data collected by the OLnet project. (I’m also building up an inspiration gallery on Pinterest.) Here’s a provisional list with a few comments of my own. I’m not really going to look at word clouds (e.g. Wordle) as they’re a bit […]
