A while ago, I posted Drawing without Drawing in my Idealog.I was looking at a simple way to diagram mind maps without a lot of dragging and dropping of shapes.
Today I came across a cool tool called diagrammr.
You just type a few simple sentences. The tool parses the sentences and builds a simple diagram. Hopefully we will see more of these kinds of tools soon.
This is such an information rich podcast. I need to go back and listen to it again and enhance my notes. There are several parallel threads of thought that run through my mind as I listen. Here are a few.
1. How to approach an area for gradual, incremental improvement using Semantic technologies. Thanassis takes us step by step into how they started with research and went about understanding how to apply semantic technologies to Higher Ed.
2. A note about special semantic tools for higher ed and how they can come from existing tools like wikis, search, repositories, collaboration tools and infrastructure.
3. What are the challenges facing Higher Educatioin? Thanassis points out to a few. This report may contain more.
