School of Open
http://schoolofopen.p2pu.org

The School of Open offers free online courses, face-to-face workshops, and training programs on topics that loosely gather around the subject of openness – in education, research, and science. Typical topics include Creative Commons licenses (what they are and how to use them), open educational resources, and how to utilize and share creative works. Interested readers can register for Facilitated courses (Creative Commons for K-12 Educators) or Stand-alone courses (Get CC Savvy) that allow students to work through the material at their own pace. Training Programs are offered in Spanish, English, Chinese, and other languages. Readers may also volunteer to design and run their own courses through the site.

JournalTOCs
http://www.journaltocs.hw.ac.uk/

Current Awareness Services have been published by libraries for a long time. They usually include new books, table of contents alerts, blogs, citation alerts, and other information. JournalTOCs builds on the idea by offering tables of contents (TOCs) for the newest issues of thousands of academic journals via this free website. Readers may type in the name of any journal in the search function on the homepage to access that journal’s latest table of contents. They may also browse by publishers and subjects. For librarians, students, and scholars who want to keep up to date on the breaking research in their field, this is a valuable resource. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Current Awareness Discovery Tools white paper.

The Invisible Internet Project (I2P)
https://geti2p.net/en/

The I2P network provides strong privacy protections for communication over the Internet. Many activities that would risk your privacy on the public Internet can be conducted anonymously inside I2P. I2P is an anonymous overlay network – a network within a network. It is intended to protect communication from dragnet surveillance and monitoring by third parties such as ISPs. I2P is used by many people who care about their privacy: activists, oppressed people, journalists and whistleblowers, as well as the average person.No network can be “perfectly anonymous”. The continued goal of I2P is to make attacks more and more difficult to mount. Its anonymity will get stronger as the size of the network increases and with ongoing academic review. I2P is available on desktops, embedded systems (like the Raspberry Pi) and Android phones. Help spread the word! Features include: 1) Email: Integrated web mail interface, plugin for serverless email; 2) Web browsing: Anonymous websites, gateways to and from the public Internet; 3) Blogging and forums: Blogging and Syndie plugins; 4) Website hosting: Integrated anonymous web server; 5) Real-time chat: Instant messaging and IRC clients; 6) File sharing: ED2K and Gnutella clients, integrated BitTorrent client; and 7) Decentralized file storage: Tahoe-LAFS distributed filesystem plugin.
