SEAS Homepage SEAS is a software tool developed for intelligence analysts That records analytic reasoning and methods That supports collaborative analysis Across contemporary and historical situations and analysts and has broad applicability beyond intelligence analysis Approach The survival of an enterprise often rests upon its ability to make correct and timely decisions, despite the complexity and uncertainty of the environment. Applications Good candidate applications for SEAS are assessment tasks characterized by the following: SEAS argument templates have been developed for a wide range of applications including the following: Benefits KMi Concept Video | Knowledge Media Institute | The Open University 1994 KMi Virtual Summer School and Future Concept Videos While working towards the creation of the Knowledge Media Institute in late 1994, Marc Eisenstadt, Tom Vincent and Kitty Chisholm, with support from then-Vice-Chancellor Sir John Daniel, commissioned a team working under the direction of Clive Holloway at the BBC to create a 'concept video'. Their brief was to explain in around 7 minutes what the future of the Open University might be in the rapidly-emerging landscape of new knowledge media technologies. The concept video was itself inspired by a bold (and ultimately amusing) 'near-miss' attempt to give Open University students a taster of these new experiences during a 1994 "Virtual Summer School". This relied on a series of "best of breed" technologies, including the Mosaic web browser, CU-SeeMe video, and 14.4Kbps dial-up modems! The video sequence includes excerpts from Virtual Summer School, including a segment where it goes horribly wrong, and the full Concept Video.

Knowledge Cartography Knowledge Cartography: Software Tools and Mapping Techniques. (Eds.) Okada, A., Buckingham Shum, S. and Sherborne, T. Springer: Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing Series. ISBN: 978-1-84800-148-0 Published: Oct. 2008Springer Catalogue / Available online as a Springer eBook Knowledge Cartography is the discipline of mapping intellectual landscapes.The focus of this book is on the process by which manually crafting interactive, hypertextual maps clarifies one’s own understanding, as well as communicating it.The authors see mapping software as a set of visual tools for reading and writing in a networked age. With 17 chapters from the leading researchers and practitioners, the reader will find the current state–of-the-art in the field. Knowledge Cartography will be of interest to learners, educators, and researchers in all disciplines, as well as policy analysts, scenario planners, knowledge managers and team facilitators.

OER Commons BrowsEarth BrowsEarth is proposed framework for social engagement and currency around common-interest "success stories" and emerging action plans in the ongoing global transition to thrivable multi-cultures. It consists of a modular set of formats and protocol for contextualized social metadata aggregation and navigation in the space of online media content around demonstrable public-benefit effort and accomplishment. The primary ingredients are: interoperable ideographic taxonomic tagging structures (PESO) multidimensional rating system for qualitative parameters and evaluation of content adaptive visualization and mapping system to reveal patterns, lenses, and opportunities distributed storage and flexible service of domain/phyle-based metadata Above this basic substrate are "game layers" for compelling systematic interaction, of which crowdsourcing/funding is viewed with primary interest.

Prospective EcoSocial Ontology Basic concept: create adaptable shared reference structures and symbology for cross-platform semantic linking and pattern reinforcement in non-fiction story-form media The Prospective Eco-Social Ontology (PESO) is an approach toward interoperable taxonomic systems for navigation and aggregation of diverse content libraries and topical threads in the realm of "common good" environmental and cultural regeneration work. The idea sprouted from designs for the BrowsEarth semantic story-scape platform. The present objective is to evolve a composable lexicon of visual tags (icons) which represent near-universal qualities of human value expression, as applicable to the What, How, and Why cognitive dimensions of an ontology of experiential narrative. Each of these dimensions will be mapped as taxonomic structures which attempt to intuitively, conveniently, discreetly, and completely arrange the relevant icons to several levels of nested specificity.
