A Repository for Learning Objects: Supporting the Reuse and Repurposing of Redesigned Courses and Their Content

A Repository for Learning Objects: Supporting the Reuse and Repurposing of Redesigned Courses and Their Content

Date: 2008
Creator: Barnes, Svetlana; Li, Fei; Polyakov, Serhiy & Moen, William E.
Description: This paper describes the design and development of a learning object repository for a new statewide higher education initiative. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is funding the redesign of large undergraduate courses; the redesigned courses are intended to improve student learning, retention and outcomes. The learning object repository stores and provides access to content from these courses. Content has been decomposed into discrete learning object varying in levels of granularity. The paper provides details on the proof-of-concept implementation developed in Phase I of a two-phase project. Special attention is given to key aspects such as the levels of granularity, metadata, technology, and user testing. ssues that emerged in Phase I are informing all facets of the next iteration of the repository.

Scaffolding for Digital Curation Education: A One Week Unix Fundamentals Course

Scaffolding for Digital Curation Education: A One Week Unix Fundamentals Course

Date: January 2013
Creator: Helsing, Joseph; Lewis, Paulette; Moen, William E. & Salter, Jacqueline
Description: This poster discusses scaffolding for digital curation eductaion. The authors will teach students how to perform commands such as changing directories, moving and copying files, compressing folders, and altering permissions in the Unix environment. This will give students some basic preparation for digital curation work and for the (4) intermediate and advanced courses in digital curation and data management offered by the iCamp Project at the University of North Texas.

A DSpace Foundation for a Teaching and Research Commons: The Metadata Education and Research Information Commons

Date: January 2007
Creator: Hsieh-Yee, Ingrid; Moen, William E.; Vellucci, Sherry L. & Benton, Bryce
Description: Poster presented at the 2007 International Conference on Open Repositories. This poster discusses the Metadata Education and Research Information Commons (MERIC). MERIC originated from an action plan of the Library of Congress and addresses the need to prepare future information professionals to organize and provide access to digital resources.

Data Normalization Procedures on Decomposed MARC 21 Records

Data Normalization Procedures on Decomposed MARC 21 Records

Date: October 25, 2001
Creator: Kim, Ed & Moen, William E.
Description: In this document, the authors present some aspects of data normalization of the decomposed records to improve the results of analysis. The data normalization processes use pattern-matching techniques to eliminate and/or generalize anomalous characters and terms. Since the unit of analysis in preparing the test dataset of 400,000 MARC 21 records is a "word," there was a need for data normalization to provide reliability in the subsequent analysis.

An Issue of Granularity: Decomposing Redesigned Courses on Different Levels of Details

Date: 2008
Creator: Li, Fei; Polyakov, Serhiy; Barnes, Svetlana; Moen, William E. & Xu, Hong
Description: This paper discusses a project to redesign courses on different levels of details. The Texas Course Redesign Project initiated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) aims to develop and distribute instructional resources to improve student learning outcomes and lower the costs of higher education.

Assessing Interoperability in the Networked Environment: Standards, Evaluation, and Testbeds in the Context of Z39.50

Assessing Interoperability in the Networked Environment: Standards, Evaluation, and Testbeds in the Context of Z39.50

Date: 2001
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This book chapter discusses interoperability in the networked environment. An underlying assumption of any network is that various components and processes will work together to produce desired results (e.g., data transmission, data interchange, reliability of services, etc.). The term interoperability has been used to characterize this working together, especially, the workings of lower level data communication components. Usage of the term has evolved to refer more generally to the extent to which different types of computers, networks, operating systems, and applications work together effectively to exchange information in a useful and meaningful manner. Miller (2000) suggests a perspective That is even more encompassing: he says that to be interoperable means "one should actively be engaged in the ongoing process of ensuring that the systems, procedures and culture of an organisation are managed in such a way as to maximize opportunities for exchange and re-use of information, whether internally or externally."

Creating Radioactive MARC Records and Z Queries Using the MARCdocs Database

Creating Radioactive MARC Records and Z Queries Using the MARCdocs Database

Date: December 2, 2004
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document describes how the authors can extend a relational database of MARC documentation to store the appropriate information that will support the automatic generation of the special, diagnostic MARC records the authors will call radioactive MARC (RadMARC) records. The information contained in the database will also support the generation of the Z queries used in the interoperability testing.

Decomposing MARC 21 Records for Analysis

Decomposing MARC 21 Records for Analysis

Date: October 1, 2002
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document discusses decomposing MARC 21 records for analysis. To prepare the test dataset of the 1% sample of MARC 21 records from the WorldCat database for use in the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed, the authors need to be able to efficiently analyze the records to determine relevant records to be returned for a set of test searches. The first step in that analysis is to determine the occurrence of test search terms in specific records. This document describes the general approach for this analysis and identifies specifications for the analysis.
