Using Open Data in Education

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

The initial purpose of this group centers around the following aims:

  • Identifying sources of open data that are relevant to education
  • Documenting strategies and approaches for incorporating various data sources into a single site/instance
  • Documenting the means by which schools and local communities can gain a more complete understanding of the factors affecting how people learn

More data is being released in more usable formats by local, state, and federal agencies. Data points (information like median income, crime rates, political demographics, percentage of renters to owners, etc) all help provide a backdrop against which educational outcomes can be more fully understood. However, the flood of data creates real issues around signal to noise.

This group will help develop toolkits that will allow decision makers and other motivated stakeholders get access to relevant information in usable formats.

Help with building a forum

Hello there,

I am building a website where I need a Forum for a community and I wanted to extend the Drupal Core Forum's functionality but as I am new to drupal i am getting very confused and so Could anyone help me??? please...

Well I don't know if it is necessary as I have never used Core Forum before so I don't really now what it looks like, but I suppose it comes with the installation.

The forum would need to let people who wants to post content or reply to a thread to have a registered account ie they'd need to log in. However the content will have to be visible to the public.

Benchmarking Higher Ed Sites ...

I recently revisited an old pet project of mine looking at benchmarking and comparing higher education sites. It is obviously a work in progress, but it is shaping up fairly well at this stage and I'm getting to a point where I'd like to secure some feedback. If 'ya get a chance, please take a look and let me know what you think. It's based on D7, represents around 3,200 US higher ed sites, and has a range of data to sift through.

Open Data session at DrupalCamp Chicago

Hi folks,

For those who may be attending DrupalCon Chicago, I wanted to let you know that I've submitted a session proposal you may be interested in. I was surprised to see no sessions discussing Open Data or how Drupal would leverage Open Data sources, so as a heavy user of political "open data" in particular, I submitted a session to address this topic.

I've outlined the proposed session here: http://chicago2011.drupal.org/sessions/nomnomnom-consuming-3rd-party-dat...
