Difference between Omeka Classic and Omeka S - Forum Feedback - Omeka Forum
One very basic answer is that Omeka Classic is designed for a single site around a general theme, argument, or research question. Omeka S was created for institutions managing a sharable resource pool across multiple sites. In addition, Omeka Classic uses Dublin Core while Omeka S implements multiple vocabularies and facilitates linked open data.

If you want to take a look at the differences yourself, you can sign up for a trial account at 7 and experiment in the Omeka S sandbox 1

Four reasons Slack will change how you teach (opinion)
Like most digital tools, Slack has privacy and user limitations. Importantly, although Slack has plenty of great academic uses, it was designed for business communications, not FERPA compliance. As always, communication about sensitive student information, including grades and personal information, should take place on a FERPA-friendly platform.

You should also consider how well students will adapt to managing Slack in addition to the other communication platforms used at your institution. At this point, Slack is not available as an integrated widget in most learning management systems. Your students will need to monitor their Slack space in addition to email, LMS messages and any other means your institution uses to communicate with students. We recommend clarifying Slack expectations with students; Slack may be ideal for quick questions, in-class activities or collaborative projects, but coach your students about times when an email or face-to-face meeting is more appropriate.

Finally, in all likelihood, your campus IT specialists will not be able to support Slack if a student runs into technical difficulties. Be aware that you, as the instructor, will have to be the help desk in these situations. Instructors should be prepared to help students navigate the platform from time to time and may want to curate a collection of explanatory videos to familiarize students with the platform.

So if you’re craving better-quality communication with students and diverse in-class participation, or you are just looking to incorporate something new in your fall syllabi, Slack might be the way to go. In a sea of digital tools, it's one we’ve grown to love.

Text San Francisco’s Modern Art Museum and It Will Respond With Art - Motherboard
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) has a delightful texting service that lets you get a glimpse of its massive collection. Send a word or emoji to 572-51, and the museum's API will reply with a corresponding artwork. You can also ask for a piece with a specific hue, by saying a phrase like "send me something yellow."

Sometimes the results are literal: When I sent a horse emoji, I got a black and white photograph of an equestrian atop a steed. But when I asked for a wave, I got a Charles Howard painting from 1942 that I guess is a little wavy, but wasn't the ocean I was expecting.

Curating Research Data, Volume Two: A Handbook of Current Practice
Curating Research Data, Volume Two: A Handbook of Current Practice
aims to
guide you through the practical strategies and techniques for curating research
data in a digital repository setting. The data curation steps for receiving, apprais
ing, selecting, ingesting, transforming, describing, contextualizing, disseminat
ing, and preserving digital research data are explored. Yet, what does it mean to
actually apply these concepts to actual data? In this handbook, theory is sup
plemented with detailed case studies written by forty international practitioners
from national, disciplinary, and institutional data repositories based in the Unit
ed States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Together we present ac
tionable techniques that can be immediately applied at your home institution,
such as appraising incoming digital data files, detecting personally identifiable
information, and transforming proprietary software files into archival formats for
long-term preservation. These timely examples may focus specifically on digital
research data sets, yet they draw from existing theory and practice in the digital
curation and archives communities and aim not to recreate the wheel, but to
provide a solid base from which to build. By sharing our current strategies, we
hope that this dissemination will lead to wider adoption of data curation best
practices and encourage experimentation and dialogue in order to develop new
and improved processes for curating research data.

Curating Research Data Volume One: Practical Strategies for Your Digital Repository
Volume One of
Curating Research Data
explores the variety of reasons, motivations, and drivers for why data curation services are needed in the context of
academic and disciplinary data repository efforts.
The following twelve chapters,
divided into three parts, take an in-depth look at the complex practice of data cu
ration as it emerges around us. Part I sets the stage for data curation
by describing
current policies, data sharing cultures, and collaborative efforts underway that
impact potential services. Part II brings several key issues, such as cost recovery
and marketing strategy, into focus for practitioners when considering how to put
data curation services into action. Finally, Part III describes the full life cycle of
data by examining the ethical and practical reuse issues that data curation practitioners must consider as we strive to prepare data for the future.

Museums, the New Social Media Darlings
Perhaps the most ephemeral of social media channels, Snapchat, is being used to pair pop lyrics with images of centuries-old paintings or artifacts. The images last on a device for up to 10 seconds.

If it seems incongruous to juxtapose an ancient objet d’art with an image that disappears in a blink of an eye, that’s exactly what the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has been doing — to much fanfare. Last spring, its Snapchat account won a Webby Award....

Ms. Redoglia also weaves together “snap stories” that can stay up for 24 hours and that illustrate lines of songs, like Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with pictures of artworks.

POWRR’ing Forward! A Resource Guide
This page is intended to capture resources that are germane to topics/sessions covered in the POWRR Institutes, and is meant to be a work in progress for the duration of the grant. Think of this as a friendly place to turn for more assistance on topics we cannot cover exhaustively in the instruction/modules. The guide contains links to timely and relevant projects, literature, standards, how-tos - anything that could be helpful for folks trying to learn various technical concepts we will be covered or mentioned at the Institute.
