  • 4. Open Source
    • In essence:
      • OS source codes are freely assessable and modifiable.
      • Anybody can use it
      • Full definition can be found at opensource .org
  • 5. Benefits of Open Source
    • You can modify the software to your specific needs – there’s a lot of control and eventually satisfaction
    • Can increase the quality of the software
    • You are not in the mercy of the vendor (no forced updates or license renewal purchase)
    • Global collaboration with skilled developers
    • Cost saving – the application is free!
  • 6. Disadvantages of Open Source
    • Although the software itself is free, with not having the right person to administer and support it, you might not see the cost benefit.
    • Can lack software support and/or resources (documentations, communities, etc.)
    • Lack of time to really learn the software
    • May lack the manpower to support the software
  • 7. What’s Out There?
    • OpenOffice – equivalent to Microsoft Office
    • GIMP - photo editing software
    • NVU - web editing application
    • Gallery2 - online photo gallery
    • Firefox - web browser
    • WordPress - blog application
    • Portable Apps - neat software to run many OS apps through a USB drive
    • Edubuntu - Linux geared towards education
  • 8. Web 2.0
    • Web 2.0
    • What is Web 2.0?
    • My definition: collaboration, incorporating multiple Internet technology, easy transfer from desktop to the web and vice versa.
    • RSS Explained
  • 9. O’Reilly’s Definition Web 2.0 is the network as platform, spanning all connected devices; Web 2.0 applications are those that make the most of the intrinsic advantages of that platform: delivering software as a continually-updated service that gets better the more people use it , consuming and remixing data from multiple sources , including individual users, while providing their own data and services in a form that allows remixing by others, creating network effects through an "architecture of participation," and going beyond the page metaphor of Web 1.0 to deliver rich user experiences.
  • 10. Web 2.0 Examples
    • Zoho and ThinkFree - office products
    • Del.icio.us and furl - social bookmarking
    • Meebo - chat application, can enhance your website/blog
    • Zamzar - file conversion
    • YouTube - video sharing
    • Pbwiki - wiki
  • 11. Open Courseware (OCW)
    • University material that is available for all to see and use.
    • OpenCourseWare began with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology OpenCourseWare, an initiative to put all of the educational materials from MIT's undergraduate- and graduate-level courses online, free and openly available to anyone, anywhere, by the year 2008.
