[publication] @twitter Try out #Grabeeter to Export, Archive and Search Your Tweets

Our publication on “@twitter Try out #Grabeeter to Export, Archive and Search Your Tweets” for this year Research 2.0 Workshop at ECTEL Conference is now online available. The slides you will find here.

The microblogging platform Twitter is beside Facebook the fastest growing social networking application of the last years. It is used in different ways, e.g. to enhance events (conferences) by sending updates, hyperlinks or other data as a news-stream to a broader public. Until now the stream ends with the end of the event. In this publication a new application is introduced that allows information retrieval and knowledge discovery by searching through local stored tweets related to a corresponding event. The architecture of the prototype is described as well as how the data is being accessed by a web application and a local client. It can be stated that making tweets available after the end of an event, enhances the way we deal with information in future.

[iPhone App] SciFinder wird “App der Woche”

Wir freuen uns über eine kleine Auszeichnung unsere Bemühungen im Forschungsgebiet “Research 2.0“. Die von Alexander im Rahmen seiner Masterarbeit entwickelte App – SciFinder – erhielt von der Redaktion telefon.de, den “App der Woche” Award.
Stolz sind wir vorallem, dass auch Apps die nicht dem Spielegenre oder ähnlichem zugehörig sind, gewählt werden. Wie immer freuen wir uns auf Rückmeldung 🙂 für die nächste Version.

[CfP] Research 2.0 at ECTEL 2010

Ich möchte auf einen Call for Papers hinweisen: Workshop Research 2.0 bei der diesjährigen ECTEL Konferenz:

As a follow-up to a successful workshop on the same theme at ECTEL09, we are organizing a workshop on Research2.0 approaches to TEL research at ECEL10.
Research2.0 is in essence a Web2.0 approach to how we do research. Research2.0 creates conversations between researchers, enables them to discuss their findings and connects them with others. Thus, Research2.0 can accelerate the diffusion of knowledge.

Topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Evaluation of existing Research2.0 tools and infrastructures from a TEL perspective
  • Development of TEL-related use case scenarios for Research2.0 tools and infrastructures
  • Influence of Research2.0 tools and technologies on scientific practices in TEL
  • Formats and protocols for Research2.0 data exchange (linked data, RSS, BuRST, …)
  • Ownership and privacy of research information
  • Practices of the diverse Technology Enhanced Learning disciplines, and how Research2.0 can influence them
