Links, thoughts and research into using drones, UAVs or remotely piloted vehicles for journalism at the Drone Journalism Lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications. The College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln established the Drone Journalism Lab in November 2011 as part of a broad digital journalism and innovation strategy. Journalism is evolving rapidly, and journalism education must evolve with it, teaching new tools and storytelling strategies while remaining true to the core principles and ethics of journalism. The lab was started by Professor Matt Waite as a way to explore how drones could be used for reporting. In the lab, students and faculty will build drone platforms, use them in the field and research the ethical, legal and regulatory issues involved in using pilotless aircraft to do journalism.

Open Learning Initiative: Probability & Statistics
http://oli.cmu.edu/courses/free-open/statistics-course-details

A strong grounding in probability and statistics can help with the interpretation of research studies in a variety of fields. Carnegie Mellon’s Open Learning Initiative offers a free, online, four-unit course on Probability & Statistics for anyone looking to learn more about the discipline. This course, intended to be the equivalent of a college semester, is designed to be taken independently or incorporated into a classroom. The course utilizes the university’s own StatTutor program to provide interactive feedback and hints to learners as they solve problems. Learners have the choice of selecting two versions of this online course: Probability & Statistics, which includes a more “classical” approach to probability, or Statistical Reasoning, which features an abridged version of the Probability unit with an emphasis on the skills and knowledge needed to understand inference. This course is intended as a beginner course in Statistics and requires prior knowledge in basic algebra. This will be added to Statistics Resources and Big Data Subject Tracer™.

When2meet

When2meet
http://www.when2meet.com

For visual learners, When2meet is a free tool designed to alleviate the stress of planning a large meeting or event. First event planners select days and times that may work (e.g., Thursday between 10:00AM- 4:00PM). Participants may then be emailed or provided with a distinct URL to offer input about the schedule in question. Participants can mark half hour blocks when they are available and unavailable to meet. As participants respond, a group schedule is shaded in (the more people available to meet, the darker the shade for that time period). This allows visitors to quickly visualize the best time to meet. This will be added to Entreprenurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.
