Library 2.0 - the future of libraries in the digital age Ubick, une solution de cartographie en 3D 100 % française Cette vue du quartier de la tour Montparnasse à Paris (XIVe arrondissement) illustre la qualité et le niveau de détail que peut offrir la base de données cartographiques Ubick. Elle couvre déjà 30 villes françaises. © Ubick Ubick, une solution de cartographie en 3D 100 % française - 2 Photos Lorsqu’on parle de cartographie numérique en 3D, on pense généralement à des services comme Google Earth, Apple Plans ou Nokia Here. Ubick dispose d’un mode 3D stéréoscopique dont on peut profiter en se servant de lunettes anaglyphes. Cinq caméras embarquées pour Ubick Créée en 2001, cette société dont le siège se trouve à Limoges (Limousin) est spécialisée dans la cartographie aérienne par photo numérique et lidar. Pour réaliser les prises de vue aériennes destinées à Ubick, Imao a aménagé l’un de ses avions avec un système comportant cinq caméras et une centrale inertielle. Ces images aériennes sont ensuite traitées par InterAtlas, une entreprise créée par Pierre Farout. A voir aussi sur Internet

Who is taking MOOCs? Teachers, says MIT-Harvard study A new MIT-Harvard study released on Wednesday finds that nearly 40 percent of learners who take open online courses are teachers. That finding has researchers wondering whether they can better design online courses once predicted to upend students’ experience to meet teachers’ needs. The study describes two years of open online courses launched on MIT and Harvard’s non-profit online initiative, edX. “We know who these people are,” said Harvard Associate Professor Andrew Ho, co-author of the study. “We imagine a college classroom with a bunch of young, uncertified, invested — at least financially — undergraduate students. But if you imagine online learners sitting in a classroom, Ho points out that they don’t look like your traditional college student. “If you’re standing in this classroom with 100 MOOC participants, you immediately notice that they’re older and more experienced,” Ho explained.

MOOC Completion and Retention in the Context of Student Intent Key Takeaways MOOC critics are concerned about low overall completion rates, but these rates are typically evaluated without accounting for student intentions. This study, based on survey and log data from nine HarvardX courses, investigates how completion and attrition rates differ based on students' self-reported intentions about course participation. The study found that, on average among survey respondents, 22 percent of students who intended to complete a course earned a certificate, compared with 6 percent of students who intended to browse a course. Efforts to personalize MOOCs based on self-reported intentions should be conducted with care: many students who do not intend to complete a MOOC do so, and most who do intend to complete a MOOC are not successful. Justin Reich is Richard L. HarvardX research into MOOC intention and completion Toward a Measure of Intention The HarvardX Survey Intention: how much of the course they intended to complete.

Making Virtual Reality Less Virtual A decade ago, the dream of a separate, virtual world didn’t seem so far-fetched. Second Life, a digital world where people could create and interact with human-like avatars, seemed poised to blow up. A magazine wrote a cover story about a Second Life millionaire. Politicians made policy announcements in the virtual world. Second Life never took off as predicted. But that might be changing. Rosedale is also back on the virtual reality scene with the new venture. Even if Rosedale is right, that’s probably a while away. At this early stage in the gestation process, though, it’s fascinating to take a closer look at Rosedale’s mission, because it exposes a lot of basic, mind-bending questions. But the question of whether lots of people can learn to love virtual reality is also a wonderful thought experiment, because it forces us to answer this: If reality can be completely recreated with technology, what makes reality so special? Current communication technologies aren’t that fast.
