I’ve a couple of book contributions in the bag. My latest output is my first solo effort in More Library Mashups, edited by Nicole C. Engard. The chapter, ‘OpenRefine(ing) and visualizing library data’, is a work up of one of the posts I released as part of the UKOER Visualisation Project on extracting and visualising repository data from Jorum.
This post takes you thorugh the process of extracting data (in this case a listserv JISCMail list) using OpenRefine and processing the data to make it useable in other applications. The focus of this tutorial is the OER-DISCUSS list.
Aggregation of content is at the heart of cMOOC design and the RSS resyndication tool FeedWordPress is at the heart of a number of courses including ds106. In this most I explore how data collected by FeedWordPress can be refined and visualised in NodeXL to give an overview of content and using betweenness centrailty identify influencial posts
Notes on my first play with Carrot2 Workbench (a search term clustering/analysis/visualisation tool). In this example reformat tweets from #or2012 using Google Refine into a Carrot2 XML format. Still loads to learn about C2 so if you have any pointers I’d be very grateful
