Information quality in Web 2 0

Youtube.com has an extensive partner program. They Partner Up with e.g. Warner Music, and all other major labels. The cooperation between the companies was under heavy debate during the writing of this report, yet it is still an observation of a known use. Nonetheless, Youtube.com still has this form of cooperation with the other major music labels. It is a flower blooming on the dung pile of the pirate industry. Instead of constant battling over abused content, Warner Music now delivers content. This is a win-win-situation. On the one hand, Youtube.com always gets the first, high quality content on their website, without violating any copyright. On the other hand, Warner Music has a platform for promoting their new music. The partners have found a balance in this, by letting Warner promote new music videos whenever another video of them is watched. This is observable by the fact that, if a user watches a video; the “more videos from this provider” is visible, if one views a video from Warner, whereas it is hidden when the same user watches a video from an unknown content provider.

A mobile Web 2 0 framework : reconceptualising teaching and learning

A mobile Web 2 0 framework : reconceptualising teaching and learning

The second assignment was built upon the processes and affordances of mobile Web 2.0 that students built up during the first PIC2 assignment. The assignment focused upon student-generated content, additionally using Web 2.0 tools to present to the rest of the class and the course lecturers. Students were required to create a chronological timeline (design-line) that identified and discussed key moments in design through products, craft objects, fashion, cars, architecture, exhibitions, literature, music, politics, war, graphics, manifestos, design schools, etc. Their design-line had to be visual as well as text-rich. A clear use of graphical communication was required. Student-sourced quotes from designers, industrialist, politicians were add to the design-line.

Semantic Web meets Web 2 0 (and vice versa): The Value of the Mundane for the Semantic Web

Semantic Web meets Web 2 0 (and vice versa): The Value of the Mundane for the Semantic Web

One of the modes du jour for seeing Web 2.0 applications in action is in the concept of the “mashup.” The term mashup started in the audio domain, referring to artists remixing two (or more) recordings into a new entity. The founding example is the Grey album – a mashup of The Beatles’ White Album and Jay-Z’s black album (37). Where the music industry has had mixed reactions to mashups (suit was predictably brought against the Grey album. Meanwhile artists like David Bowie encourage mashups to be made of their music) the main reaction within the Web community has been to welcome mashups, usually understood as a combination of Web services. A grid at (31) lists mashup names and what services they combine. One of the most sited examples are those using Google Maps combined with an additional data source. A list can be found at (19). Google provides an API to their map service so that data sources can use the framework to present their data sources visualized in a geographical context. A compelling example is “http://mapsexoffenders.com/” which maps sex offenders in the US with their home addresses. Questions like “where are schools relative to density of offenders” suddenly become answerable at a glance. Suddenly this mashup takes on the grandeur of the “life saving” potential X dismissed from Web 2.0 consideration, attributing that only to the Semantic Web.

Web 2 0, Language Learning and Intercultural Competence

Web 2 0, Language Learning and Intercultural Competence

The language planning issue can be discussed from different perspectives: sociological, linguistic, historical, legal, anthropological, political and economic. Linguists can assess language needs, suggest methods for the standardization and expansion of dictionaries, create didactic material and produce grammar books, writing sys- tems, text-books and dictionaries. Computer experts can provide the necessary support technologies. Educators can develop programmes which satisfy the identified needs of the target, while school systems play a very im- portant role in promoting or reducing language differences. Even the media’s role is not to be underestimated. Indeed films, TV, websites, music and editorial products can all convey language changes or conform to lan- guage standards both at the level of contents, publicity and merchandising. Finally, economics can contribute to the study of language issues through intuitions and conceptual instruments that other disciplines cannot supply.

Virtual Learner 2  0: A Technique to Evaluate the Importance of Web 2  0 based e Learning Application

Virtual Learner 2 0: A Technique to Evaluate the Importance of Web 2 0 based e Learning Application

Papanikolaou and Mavromoustakos [6] proposed architecture for developing Web 2.0 based e-learning applications. This architecture follows SpiderWeb software development process model. In this architecture, trainers have the authority of selecting Web 2.0 tools. The selection of tools depends upon targeted audience, nature of course and educational objectives. According to these researchers, the use of Web 2.0 tools in e- learning applications will be helpful for any student to keep his/her pace with the rest of the class. Previously, Web 2.0 tools were not developed for the purpose of gaining knowledge but these tools can become a part of collaborative learning system. Copley [7] conducted a survey from the undergraduate and graduate level students. He provided students with audio and video podcast material and allowed them to evaluate the effectiveness of podcasting and video-podcasting in terms of higher education. These students tried both audio and video podcast materials. Almost all students had cast their vote for video podcasting. Students reviewed video podcasting, Web 2.0 tool, as a brilliant source of lecture revision. They stated that they can have all the record of lectures. However, the design and development of a “Stand alone” podcast material requires technical skills.

E Learner’s Collective Intelligent System Framework: Web Mining for Personalization in E Learning 2 0 Ecosystem using Web 2 0 Technologies

E Learner’s Collective Intelligent System Framework: Web Mining for Personalization in E Learning 2 0 Ecosystem using Web 2 0 Technologies

For collaboration setup used WSCDL web service in which data formats and dead-end are itemized so the collaborating web services for CI exactly identify what it is retrieving. The web service can also be used to determine data constraints by requesting the schema or profile information into a refined way for the web mining layer that is used to extract or mine the e-learners patterns or behavior then used the predictive model layer which is based on some algorithms like as decision tree, neural networks (BPN), regression, Bayesian belief networks, and so on. The aim of the algorithm is to construct a mathematical model that can predict the output attribute value given a set of input attribute values. So it incorporated in back-propagation network (BPN) to classify the potential e-learners patterns into groups with similar interest to interpret the pattern and extract the knowledge in knowledge extraction layer which is used to derived intelligence. Discovered patterns from both layers are used to store back on the semantic web. The patterns can be stored in any shape or format which is most suitable in consideration due to advantages it can be easily shared between applications, such as the PMML [32]. These store patterns are used to enhance the recommendation layer. We also use the collaborative web service for CI to Route the traffic for recommendation for particular courseware in e-learning 2.0 ecosystem.

Towards library 2 0: the adoption of web 2 0 applications in academic library websites in Malaysia

Towards library 2 0: the adoption of web 2 0 applications in academic library websites in Malaysia

As a hub of information, traditionally, library plays a major role in educating users. However, with the development of the digital era, libraries’ roles become even more challenging. Breeding (2007), who emphasizes on the need of embedding Web 2.0 applications to enrich library services, mentioned that “Web 2.0 has become a trendy marketing concept”. Meanwhile Ram (2011) and others, explained that the boundaries of libraries have broadened to accept new sources and services into their daily operation. The sources of the libraries have grown from physical objects to virtual objects, from card catalogues to online public access catalogues (OPACs), and cooperative cataloguing to social cataloguing with an ability to comment, review and reuse with the application of Web 2.0 technologies.

Web 2 0: Nothing Changes…but Everything is Different

Web 2 0: Nothing Changes…but Everything is Different

Web 2.0 may be considered as a back-to-basics web, with its social and community features perfectly illustrated by the unprecedented development of wikipedia.com, which is generally agreed to be as - if not more - reliable than the best printed encyclopaedias. It is only a "partial" return to the internet's roots, though, because the commercial web is and will remain a linchpin of Web 2.0. Web 2.0 is admittedly a collaborative and social web, but it remains a commercial web, whether directly or indirectly. Lots of Web 2.0 services are directly (sale of services or payment of a fee) or indirectly (sale of advertising spaces and/or customer data) commercial activities.

Weaving the New Web: Designing a Web 2 0: Solution to 'Catch' Job candidates

Weaving the New Web: Designing a Web 2 0: Solution to 'Catch' Job candidates

An expanded applicant pool has effect on reducing adverse impact for protected groups. Some technology-based tools are able to make HR staff process more information than before (Chapman & Webster, 2003). The direct outcome would be an increasing overall number of applicants. According to the survey data from Chapman & Webster (2003), using internet related technologies on recruitment did not appear to be having a detrimental effect on the number of minority applicants applying for jobs. Actually, HR manager hire more minority applicants as a result of adopting an online application procedure. With an increasing overall number of applicants, a higher number of minority applicants who met companies’ cutoffs and are able to fill more positions. Therefore, there is higher numbers of minority applicants, such as women or minority races, who are recruited by company. However, Stone and his colleagues (2006) argued that situation is not as optimistic as we thought, because individual differences always have influence on acceptance and use of e-recruiting systems. For instance, women are less likely to use web-based recruiting systems than are men, so it is less likely that they will be hired than men. Moreover, e-recruiting is less likely to be used by older, less well-educated, or members of ethnic minority groups than those who are young, highly educated, white job candidates.

Building the PolarGrid Portal Using Web 2 0 and OpenSocial

Building the PolarGrid Portal Using Web 2 0 and OpenSocial

Gadgets are mini applications that can be developed and rendered by any standard-compliant gadget renderer. They are based on many existing technologies including HTML, JavaScript and CSS, which removes (we believe) many barriers to entry for application web developers; that is, developers can build gadgets using almost any Web language and framework. The gadget renderer is responsible for converting gadget source files to HTML code that can be displayed in most of modern browsers. With the popularity of Web 2.0 in newly developed portals, gadgets are also widely used in these sites. Gadgets are defined by XML files that include both metadata and HTML/JavaScript code. Basically there are two types of gadgets - legacy gadgets and OpenSocial gadgets. Gadgets cannot run in regular HTTP web servers because they need more runtime support including rendering and OpenSocial data service. They are typically served by gadget rendering engines such as Apache Shindig (see below).

HE practice and Web 2 0 What’s stopping us?

This session focuses on how web 2.0 tools are impacting on learning and teaching practices in Higher Education. The definition of web 2.0 is contested. The original developer of the web, Tim Berners Lee, considers it to be lacking any coherent meaning (2006). The term was coined by Tim O‟Reilly in 2004 to explain what makes some web sites more successful than others. Paul Anderson (2007) adapted O‟Reilly‟s principles into six that particularly apply to the adoption of web 2.0 in education. These are

Web 2 0: An Evaluation of Social Media Networking Sites

Web 2 0: An Evaluation of Social Media Networking Sites

illustrates that, Instragram and Snapchat are higher important social networking sites among the employed youth and these were perceived as fair performed social networking sites. So, further rmore these two social networking sites required enrichment in the performance to enhance the usage among high user group of employed youth in their day-to-day life. Slightly Important/Fair Performance: Pinterest, Linkedin and Twitter are mapped under the slightly important cum fair performance quadrant based on the perception on importance and performance among social media networking sites. It reveals that, these three social media networking sites are lesser important and less performed social networking sites among the high user group of employed youth in their daily usage. The MDS output for figure 2 shows that highest users group of social media networking sites satisfies in terms of good fit. The Stress value of 0.01408 and the RSQ value of 0.99931 were found to be acceptable thresholds value as recommended by Malhotra and Dash, 2011. This explicit that 99.93% of variance in the model was explained by the two dimensions. The Elucidean scaling map in Figure 2 was evaluated by examining the relative positions of the different social media networking sites in different quadrants and it was categorised namely, Excellent Performance/Extremely Important, Excellent Performance/Slightly Important, Extremely Important/Fair Performance and Slightly Important/Fair Performance. The perceived Importance-Performance of highest user group of social media networking sites was advocated in Figure 2.

Managing Social Security Data in the Web 2 0 Era

Managing Social Security Data in the Web 2 0 Era

Under i-SSIS is the raw data in the Web, which is crawled and processed by the modules in the Data Col- lection Layer. The crawlers in i-SSIS fetch the pages from the Web sites to gather data involving human re- source and social security information. The crawlers are embedded with some inner analyzers to filter the unnec- essary information during crawling, which means that only the documents involving social security information such as the person, the organization, the role and the in- surance are collected. Then the raw data would be proc- essed through three procedures to become the entities managed by the database system. Firstly, the information of i-SSIS entities, e.g., people and organizations, is ex- tracted with information preprocessing tools such as natural language processing tools. In this procedure, Web documents are initially summarized with a statistics tool to find its theme and then are processed by information

Integrating Mobile Web 2 0 within tertiary education

Integrating Mobile Web 2 0 within tertiary education

The Sustainable Habitat Challenge (ShaC09) is a national competition in the form of a collaborative project for teams around New Zealand to design, develop, and build sustainable housing in their local community (http://www.shac.org.nz). Unitec is well positioned to accept such a challenge due to the strength and capabilities residing in the Departments of Design, Landscape, Applied Trades and Communication (UATI) however due to the breadth of the Shac09 challenges it was identified early on that good project management, collaborative working and cross departmental communication would be vital to the success of the project. Overall responsibility and project management for the construction of the house lies with staff in the Unitec Applied Trades Institute and Unitec's Research Office. Subject specific academic briefs have been developed collaboratively by Department lecturers in the Departments of Design, Landscape and UATI. Web 2.0 tools including Vox, Ning and Flickr were used to develop the briefs and supplement in person meetings during the writing stage. As an example, a Shac09 building site introduction is available at: http://www.flixwagon.com/watch/1537511.

Web 2 0 for Grids and e Science

Web 2 0 for Grids and e Science

The above discussion has focused on accessing the various services via SOAP calls using standard Web Service techniques, which constituted the majority of our initial work. However, we have subsequently examined the use of Web 2.0 techniques for building services. Given that the services are effectively remote function calls, we can consider other ways to expose their functionality. One example is the use of RSS feeds and REST (specifically HTTP GET) invocations. Traditionally, news sites have used RSS feeds to syndicate news items. More generally, RSS feeds can be used to syndicate any type of "new" item or state change in an existing item. In our case we have made available a number of database searches in the form of RSS feeds. For example the user can specify a query for the PubDock database, asking for docking results for molecules that have a score above certain specified value. The query is executed and the return value is an RSS feed (in RSS 2.0) format that can be viewed with any RSS reader. Furthermore our RSS feeds are able to embed chemistry within them by the use of Chemical Markup Language. Thus, if a given RSS item has an associated 2D or 3D structure, the structure can be embedded as a CML [16] fragment within the item. Such combinations are termed CML-RSS [17] feeds and can be viewed in a variety of environments such as Jmol or Bioclipse. Example of such CML-RSS feeds can be found at
