Self study courses on Special Needs Education

In the COMENIUS project SENNET, 2 Moodle courses on Special Needs Education for teachers were prepared which focus on the support computers and the Internet can provide.

The Open Video Project

The purpose of the Open Video Project is to collect and make available a repository of digitized video content for the digital video, multimedia retrieval, digital library, and other research communities. Researchers can use the video to study a wide range of problems, such as tests of algorithms for automatic segmentation, summarization, and creation of surrogates that describe video content; the development of face recognition algorithms; or creating and evaluating interfaces that display result sets from multimedia queries. Because researchers attempting to solve similar problems will have access to the same video content, the repository is also intended to be used as a test collection that will enable systems to be compared, similar to the way the TREC conferences are used for text retrieval.

This repository is hosted as one of the first channels of the Internet 2 Distributed Storage Infrastructure Initiative, a project that supports distributed repository hosting for research and education in the Internet 2 community.
The Open Video Project began in 1998 with the development of a basic framework and the digitization of the initial content, about 195 video segments. Additional video was also contributed by the CMU Informedia Project, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the Prelinger Archives. This first stage of this project also included entering metadata for each segment into a database, and creating this Web site to enable researchers to access the available video.
In the next stage of the project, the project continues to add video segments to the repository, expanding both the available formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and QuickTime) and genre characterics (student television, anthropological footage, technology demonstrations) of the video. As part of its work at UNC's Interaction Design Lab, it is also doing research on creating innovative interfaces to the video repository that enable users to more easily search, browse, preview, and evaluate the video in the collection.

Copyright Issues
The Open Video repository provides video clips from a variety of sources, especially various video programs obtained from U.S. government agencies such as the U.S. Records and Archives Administration and NASA. Although the government agency videos were produced with public funds and are freely available from the Archives, no copyright clearance has been obtained for audio or video elements in these productions. The project encourages researchers to use the data under fair use for research purposes. Those wishing to use these video clips in any commercial enterprise must bear the burden of obtaining copyright clearances.

Zotero - managing research sources

Zotero is an easy-to-use tool that helps to gather, organize, and analyse research sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects). It works as a reference manager software, allowing to store author, title, and publication fields and to export that information as formatted references, but also integrates some more social features like the ability to interact, tag and share the results of the performed researches in a variety of ways.
Zotero is an extension to Firefox, so it can sense when users are viewing a book, article, or other object through the browser, and —on many major research and library sites—find and automatically save the full reference information for the item in the correct fields. For the same reason, it can effortlessly transmit information to, and receive information from, other web services and applications. It can also communicate with software running on your computer (such as Microsoft Word) and be used offline (e.g., on a plane, in an archive without WiFi).
Zotero's Unicode support allows you to import, store, and cite items in any language. You can change the language of Zotero, and of the citations and bibliographies created by Zotero. Finally, there is an experimental multilingual version of Zotero, which supports storage of item metadata in more than one language (transliterations and translations).
Documentation is completely available in English and most of the pages are also translated in many other languages.

System requirements: 
Using Firefox: Zotero is a Firefox extension.

Différentiation sociale en situation de confinement physique et social

Cette ressource pédagogique a pour objectif l'étude de la différentiation des rôles au sein des groupes sociaux.

En montrant deux expérimentations filmées, l'une sur l'animal, l'autre sur l'homme, elle permet, à l'étudiant, de comprendre les différentes étapes du travail scientifique sur des exemples concrets.

Elle aborde et approfondit plusieurs thèmes : coopération/compétition, auto-organisation, analogie homme/animal.

La ressource pédagogique comporte 5 parties.

La première partie est un film de 14 minutes extrait d'un documentaire intitulé "Faits comme des rats" présentant une première expérience de différenciation sociale chez des animaux réalisée par le professeur Didier Desor. Cette expérience est à l’origine de la ressource réalisée ici, car elle amené les chercheurs et entre autre par le professeur Anne-Marie Toniolo à se poser la question de la transposition de l’expérience à l’homme.

La deuxième partie présente la transposition de cette expérience chez l’homme. Elle reconstitue grâce à des figurants une des nombreuses expériences réalisées sur l’homme. Cette-ci est réalisée sous forme de photomontage sonorisé d’environ 8 minutes et détaille les différentes étapes de l’expérience réalisée avec des étudiantes et analogue à celle des rats.

La troisième partie est l'interprétation des résultats des expériences et la présentation du concept d’auto organisation à travers un entretien avec Anne-Marie Toniolo la responsable du programme de recherche. Cet entretien, d’une durée de 23 minutes , est filmé et présenté sous forme de questions –réponses.

La quatrième partie est un vidéo cours sur l'étude de la transposition de l’expérience vers l’humain .Dans ce cours de 52 min l’auteur Annne-Marie Toniolo détaille les éléments intervenant dans les processus interactifs complexes intervenant dans des groupes restreints. Elle analyse des phénomènes collectifs dans des environnements collaboratifs à partir d’une expérience chez l’animal et d’un transfert de modèle théorique et expérimental chez l’humain. Les notions de groupe, d’interaction, d’auto-organisation, de comportement et d’analogie y sont entre autre présentées.

La cinquième partie comporte des exercices d'autoévaluation. Elle comporte quatorze exercices interactifs comportant des vidéos et portant sur l’ensemble des contenus de la ressource : film sur l’expérience des rats, photomontage sur l’expérience chez l’humain , interview du chercheur et vidéo cours. Elle permet ainsi à l’étudiant de vérifier qu’il a assimilé les concepts essentiels mais aussi de revoir certains contenus d’un façon différente car extraits de leur contexte.
La conclusion vous donnera les contacts des enseignants et des informations concernant les enseignements utilisant cette ressource
