There are now several hands-on learning activities that demonstrate the usability of the Distributome resources in educational settings.
The 2011 Distributome Project Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) meeting took place on 10/28/2011.
We set up a new Distributome project Wiki infrastructure which will include learning activities, data and instructional resources.
Distributome Quick Response (QR) code may be used in all Distributome printed materials. For instance, posters, papers and brochures.
- Latest Distributome Navigator is now completely functioning and uses the new Distributome.xml XML DB/XSD — albeit it’s a bit buggy, but we’ll resolve these in the next 1-2 weeks.
- I drafted a Navigator (V.2) redesign mock-ups. See these images:
- Reconciling the Old XML DB and the New XML DB. This is a bit of a challenge. We have 2 grads working on this, but they are not quite up to par yet. Any help with grads that are well-trained in probabilistically and computationally (e.g., Web-discovery and XML syntax) would be greatly appreciated. Basically, we need to expand the New Distributome.xml using the old meta-data and includes the number of nodes/relations in the graph.
- Cleaned and updated the Distributome.xml syntax to pass the Distributome XML/DB Validator and allow more functionality.
- All code (HTML, XML, JS) is on SVN, includes log-change.
- There are 2 critical things to achieve in Fall’11.
- SAB progress/demo/vision
- Distributome utilization in classroom.
