Reviews and Testimonials
Contributors from information and computer sciences, of course, but also education and a few other fields examine the hierarchy of open source resources and information available, and the process of how such digital collections are collected and often curated for quality. The topics include geo-information technology as a case study of an open-source approach to contemporary research, creating a digital learning community for undergraduate minority science majors, building open-source resources for online learning in a higher education environment, measuring language learners' speaking proficiency in a second language using economic digital tools, creating open-source interactive articles for the wider publics, and opening up options for school leaders.
