 Backlog – Evolutionary Project Management Tool
http://backlogtool.com/

Does your Project Management Tool help your team to cooperate? Do you feel you are boxed in a corner because you were told to use this application for task management and use that application for file sharing. Communication and sharing information among team members are key for smoother team projects. Backlog includes all Project Management features that support your team , such as task management, charts, file sharing and Subversion. Your team members can concentrate on what they are supposed to do by using Backlog. One of the distinctions of Backlog is that its user interface is clear and very easy to grasp. Its features were carefully selected to avoid confusion for the first time user. All team members, including programmers, designers, sales people and administrators, can work smoothly on Backlog. They believe that the best results will be produced when team members work together. As simple as clicking “Like” on Facebook, praising other team members or being praised is a good way to communicate and interact. Backlog helps to bring up motivation and and bring enjoyment to your work. They always listen to user’s feedback and never stop looking from the user’s view to improve their service. In fact, some of the current features come from user’s requests. They will keep Backlog evolving further for all project teams.

SNAPP – Social Networks Adapting Pedagogical Practice

February 25, 2012

 

SNAPP – Social Networks Adapting Pedagogical Practice
http://research.uow.edu.au/learningnetworks/seeing/snapp/index.html

SNAPP is a software tool that allows users to visualize the network of interactions resulting from discussion forum posts and replies. The network visualisations of forum interactions provide an opportunity for teachers to rapidly identify patterns of user behaviour – at any stage of course progression. SNAPP has been developed to extract all user interactions from various commercial and open source learning management systems (LMS) such as BlackBoard (including the former WebCT), and Moodle. SNAPP is compatible for both Mac and PC users and operates in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. Most of the student data generated from Learning Management Systems (LMS) include reports on the number of sessions (log-ins), dwell time (how long the log-in lasted) and number of downloads. This tells us a lot about content retrieval in a transmission model of learning and teaching, but not about how students are interacting with each other in more socio-constructivist practice. Discussion forum activity is a good indicator of student interactions and is systemically captured by most LMS. SNAPP uses information on who posted and replied to whom, and what major discussions were about, and how expansive they were, to analyse the interactions of a forum and display it in a Social Network Diagram. The following figures illustrate how SNAPP re-interprets discussion forum postings into a network diagram.

TimeSearch – Search the Web Through Timelines

February 24, 2012

 

TimeSearch – Search the Web Through Timelines
http://www.timesearch.info/

TimeSearch is a search engine devised by Bamber Gascoigne and designed by Ian Henghes, who are fellow directors of the educational website HistoryWorld. It is an early example of the post-Google generation of online search tools, capable of being more finely tuned to the individual needs of the user. In the case of TimeSearch the user will be anyone interested in history. This may sound restricting. But yesterday is history. After lunch, this morning is history. The raw material of TimeSearch is events of any kind, whenever they may have happened. By delivering them in the form of timelines, the programme introduces the valuable element of chance discovery. In a conventional search engine you need to know roughly what you are looking for before you can type it into the Search panel. With TimeSearch you only need to say what areas or themes interest you, and at what period, before you discover what surprises history may deliver. A previously unknown event may turn out to be just what you were looking for. And it not only arrives with its own built-in search mechanism. It even lets you decide which site or sites you wish to search – for related information or images. TimeSearch already has nearly 10,000 events in its timelines, and it is growing fast. This material is a spin-off from HistoryWorld, and the TimeSearch project – launched in 2007 – therefore derives ultimately from the origins of HistoryWorld a dozen years before. It is managed by the same team of five who have run HistoryWorld since its launch. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
