#EL30 Graph task

Task 2 in the Oct 30 newsletter said we should create a task for other participants of this course.

My task is related to week 3 about Graphs. While Frank Polster observed that for some graphs it might be a stretch to think of knowledge, the following example should make this easier: “think of knowledge as a graph”:

It involves some concepts from the synopsis texts, and you should connect and annotate them.

1. Click on a selected week from this list -1 Getting Ready, 0 E-Learning 1 and 2, 1 Data, 2 Cloud, 3 Graph, 4 Identity, 5 Resources, 6 Recognition, 7 Community, 8 Experience, 9 Agency, and you will find a list of terms.

2. Copy and paste them into a .txt file, and import them into a concept map application of your choice.

  • for Cmaptools by cmap.ihmc.us, I made a video instruction on Youtube some time ago;
  • or, for my own tool http://condensr.de/download-page/ you may just drag and drop the text into the map window that opens when you start the application.
    • or, you may just copy the text and paste it (Edit menu > Paste),
    • or, you may drop the icon of the .txt file from your file explorer into the map window;

    If you want help, don’t hesitate to call me directly!

  • For limited functionality, you may also use the demo version which should open when you click on “Preview” above the terms list.

3. Connect and annotate the terms.

The terms have been extracted from Stephen’s synopsis texts by a corpus linguistics tool called AntConc, and were loaded on my gRSShopper instance. If you want to view a sample of a map that I quickly completed for week -1, click this link: http://x28hd.de/demo/?el30sample.xml

I did some annotation by inserting extra (red) items. In the full version of my tool, you can put annotations into the right pane (which is the biggest benefit of this tool).
