BASE – Bielefeld Academic Search Engine

January 20, 2014

BASE – Bielefeld Academic Search Engine
http://www.base-search.net/

BASE is one of the world’s most voluminous search engines especially for academic open access web resources. BASE is operated by Bielefeld University Library. As the open access movement grows and prospers, more and more repository servers come into being which use the “Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting” (OAI-PMH) for providing their contents. BASE collects, normalises, and indexes these data. BASE provides more than 50 million documents from more than 2,700 sources. You can access the full texts of about 75% of the indexed documents. The Index is continuously enhanced by integrating further OAI sources as well as local sources. Our OAI-PMH Blog communicates information related to harvesting and aggregating activities performed for BASE. BASE is a registered OAI service provider and contributed to the European project “Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research” (DRIVER). Database managers can integrate the BASE index into your own local infrastructure (e.g. meta search engines, library catalogues) via an interface. In comparison to commercial search engines, BASE is charcterized by the following features: a) Intellectually selected resources; b) Only document servers that comply with the specific requirements of academic quality and relevance are included; c) A data resources inventory provides transparency in the searches; d) Discloses web resources of the “Deep Web”, which are ignored by commercial search engines or get lost in the vast quantity of hits.; e) The display of search results includes precise bibliographic data; f) Several options for sorting the result list; g) “Refine your search result” options (by author, subject, DDC, year of publication, collection, language and document type); and h) Browsing by DDC (Dewey Decimal Classification) and document type. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Education and Academic Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Deep Web Research and Discovery Resources 2014. This will be added to Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources White Paper.

Saylor Foundation – Free Education

January 17, 2014

Saylor Foundation – Free Education
http://www.saylor.org/

Free and open courses on your schedule offered by The Saylor Foundation (under its legal name, The Constitution Foundation)and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The Foundation was established in 1999 by Michael J. Saylor, the Chairman and CEO of the business intelligence company MicroStrategy, Inc. and the Foundation’s sole trustee. Mr. Saylor created the Foundation because he had a very simple, very earnest, and very bold idea: Education should be free. As changes in technology have made the distribution of information easier, high-quality educational materials have become increasingly digital and readily accessible to anyone with an Internet connection. Since 2008, the Foundation’s free education initiative (www.saylor.org) has focused on exploring the promise of the Internet to drive the cost of education to zero and expand access to quality open educational resources (OER). Toward this end, they have built over 300 free, self-paced, online courses, with many more on the way. They hire credentialed educators to create course blueprints and to locate, vet, and organize OER materials into a structured and intuitive format. Their consulting professors also create original OER content and link to freely posted materials to fill in any gaps. Each course culminates with a final exam, and students receiving a passing grade can download a certificate of completion. Their current focus is on the undergraduate college level with the goal of producing high course and program completion rates. While we do not confer degrees, we do offer the knowledge equivalent of college majors in many popular disciplines, provide a number of professional development options, have a suite of math and ELA courses for grades 6-12, and are making strides in our student credit pathways.
