Open Source e-Learning Scripts A learning management system (LMS) is software for delivering, tracking and managing training. LMSs range from simple systems for managing training records to software for distributing courses over the Internet and offering features for online collaboration. In many instances, corporate training departments purchase LMSs to automate record-keeping as well as the registration of employees for classroom and online courses. Student self-service (e.g. self-registration on instructor-led training), training workflow (e.g. user notification, manager approval, waitlist management), the provision of on-line learning (e.g. Computer-Based Training, read & understand), on-line assessment, management of continuous professional education (CPE), collaborative learning (e.g. application sharing, discussion threads), and training resource management (e.g. instructors, facilities, equipment), are some of the additional dimensions to leading Learning Management Systems.

Now, hang-outs could predict who you could befriend on Facebook Big News Network (ANI) Friday 5th August, 2011 Social networks like Facebook and Twitter often suggest people you may know based on your existing 'friends'. Now, researchers at the University of Cambridge have found a new way of predicting which people may become friends on social network sites - based on the type of places they visit. Their surprise finding is that going to the same gym or school or working in the same office can be more likely to bring people together than having the same friends. To date, most social networking sites have relied upon the "friend-of-a-friend" approach to guess which people may have connections with one another.ut Salvatore Scellato, Anastasios Noulas and Cecilia Mascolo, of Cambridge's Computer Laboratory, have a new approach that not only looks at friends of friends, but also the places people visit - with weightings given to different places such as airports and gymnasiums.

Japanese inventor develops flying sphere drone A Japanese defence researcher has invented a spherical observation drone that can fly down narrow alleys, hover on the spot, take off vertically and bounce along the ground. About the size of a beachball and jet black, the remote-controlled Spherical Air Vehicle resembles a tiny Death Star from the Star Wars movies but has a more benign purpose -- to transmit live images from a video camera. It is powered by a propeller protected by a spherical shield with large openings for airflow, meaning a knock into a wall or a tumble to the ground will not damage it. Research to improve the device is continuing, but its designer says that in the future it could be used as a formidable pursuit vehicle that can travel above traffic or spy on a target through a window. Its inventor in pacifist Japan hopes it could also help with non-aggressive operations, such as search and rescue in disaster zones, where it could fly through buildings and even up and down stairways.
Streaming Guide - Listing Free Online TV Shows Legally Available for Streaming in Canada or the USA TimeSheet. Web Based and Open Source TimeSheet, by Ultrize, was apparently released today as my daily visit at Freshmeat has told me, and I am glad I spotted it. My last post was about MapleXp, which is a Windows Application, while TimeSheet is a Web Application. Personally, I’m always into Web Based as they can be always in reach if you put it online, or you can just have it on your own server, like what I do now. TimeSheet is an Open Source time card application built using PHP and MySQL. You are given the ability to set up multiple clients, projects, tasks, notes, and of course, multiple logs of time for each task. Note, this is not a website you can go to and simply signup and start. There is an online demo available on their website if you would like to give it a test run. View TimeSheet.
create your own font from your handwriting | Ask The Admin This is a cool little 10-15 minute activity that will keep on giving back to you for years to come. That’s right add that final customizing touch to your Windows, Linux or Mac machine – Your handwriting as a font! With some free time a visit to a website called YourFonts.com, a scanner and a printer you can create a font for use in any application on your computer. To me this sounded way too cool to pass up. The template looks like this: You print it out and add your letters to each corresponding box. So if you just wanted to have a font contain numbers, letters or characters just fill in those. I was pretty excited, I grabbed a sharpie and went to work on my page. Now I messed around with the scanning properties and decided to use the grey scale you see above at 200dpi. Most scanning programs can save as for you. They ask you for your file and to name your font and add a copyright line to the file as you can see below: You hit that download your font now button to do just that.
