    1. Virtual and Mixed Reality (VMR)

      I like this term better. I always mention VR but I try to say Virtual Reality Technology so I can be inclusive of Augmented Reality as a well, but I find "Mixed Reality" more inclusive as non-VR users can understand from the word alone.


      Actualmente el humano se encuentra inmerso en el mundo de lo virtual, lo semiológico y todo lo que lo concierne. Con vista a esto, debe pensarse la educación digitalizada como otro tipo de ambiente enriquecedor que hoy en día se exige y debe estar presente en el aula.

    1. desk yoga (which we did during our recent CLT Symposium)

      I wonder how many teachers pause weekly meetings to do yoga or stretch. Could be a nice way to re-energize and then bring this practice to the classroom (virtual or in-person).

    1. partnerships, networking, and revenue generation such as donations, memberships, pay what you want, and crowdfunding

      I have thought long about the same issue and beyond. The triple (wiki, Hypothesis, donations) could be a working way to search for OER, form a social group processing them, and optionally support the creators.

      I imagine that as follows: a person wants to learn about X. They can head to the wiki site about X and look into its Hypothesis annotations, where relevant OER with their preferred donation method can be linked. Also, study groups interested in the respective resource or topic can list virtual or live meetups there. The date of the meetups could be listed in a format that Hypothesis could search and display on a calendar.

      Wiki is integral as it categorizes knowledge, is comprehensive, and strives to address biases. Hypothesis stitches websites together for the benefit of the site owners and the collective wisdom that emerges from the discussions. Donations support the creators so they can dedicate their time to creating high-quality resources.

      Main inspirations:

      Deschooling Society - Learning Webs

      Building the Global Knowledge Graph

      Schoolhouse calendar

    1. Vous connaissez maintenant la différence entre conteneur et machine virtuelle ; vous avez ainsi pu voir les différences entre la virtualisation lourde et la virtualisation légère.Un conteneur doit être léger, il ne faut pas ajouter de contenu superflu dans celui-ci afin de le démarrer rapidement, mais il apporte une isolation moindre. À contrario, les machines virtuelles offrent une très bonne isolation, mais elle sont globalement plus lentes et bien plus lourdes.

    1. Formats for Disk Images Another piece of the packaging puzzle is disk image formats. There are many. Each has its own benefits and detriments, but I’m not going to get into those here. Again, this is nowhere near a comprehensive list — just something to help with getting your bearings. I’d like to comment on a couple of the formats that I’ve recently encountered. VDI – VirtualBox’s internal default disk image format is VDI. Nevertheless, this is not what is used by Vagrant boxes. VMDK – One of the most common formats. VMWare’s products use various versions and variations of VMDK disk images. Several versions and variations exist, so it’s very important to understand which one you’re working with and where it can be used.
    2. Open Virtual Appliance (OVA) An OVA is an OVF file packaged together with all of its supporting files (disk images, etc.). You can read about the requirements for a valid OVA package in the OVF specification. Oftentimes people will say “an OVF” and really mean “an OVA.”
    3. File Formats for Virtual Machines Open Virtualization Format (OVF) The OVF Specification provides a means of describing the properties of a virtual system. It is XML based and has generous allowances for extensibility (with corresponding tradeoffs in actual portability). Most commonly, an OVF file is used to describe a single virtual machine or virtual appliance. It can contain information about the format of a virtual disk image file as well as a description of the virtual hardware that should be emulated to run the OS or application contained on such a disk image.
    1. Virtual machines (VMs) revolutionized the data center. With the ability to easily spin up a machine and even roll back to a working state, VMs bring a level of ease IT would never have enjoyed. Rolling back your VM is handled by way of snapshots.

      File Formats for Virtual Machines Open Virtualization Format (OVF)

      The OVF Specification provides a means of describing the properties of a virtual system. It is XML based and has generous allowances for extensibility (with corresponding tradeoffs in actual portability). Most commonly, an OVF file is used to describe a single virtual machine or virtual appliance. It can contain information about the format of a virtual disk image file as well as a description of the virtual hardware that should be emulated to run the OS or application contained on such a disk image.

      Oracle VM VirtualBox can import and export virtual machines in the following formats:

      Open Virtualization Format (OVF). This is the industry-standard format. See Section 1.14.1, “About the OVF Format”.
      Cloud service formats. Export to and import from cloud services such as Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is supported. See Section 1.15, “Integrating with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure”. 

      1.14.1. About the OVF Format

      OVF is a cross-platform standard supported by many virtualization products which enables the creation of ready-made virtual machines that can then be imported into a hypervisor such as Oracle VM VirtualBox. Oracle VM VirtualBox makes OVF import and export easy to do, using the VirtualBox Manager window or the command-line interface.


      Using OVF enables packaging of virtual appliances. These are disk images, together with configuration settings that can be distributed easily. This way one can offer complete ready-to-use software packages, including OSes with applications, that need no configuration or installation except for importing into Oracle VM VirtualBox.

    1. In 1996, technology historian Jennifer S. Light compared the talk of “cyberoptimists” about virtual communities to city planners’ earlier optimistic predictions about shopping malls. As the automobile colonized U.S. cities in the 1950s, planners promised that malls would be enclosed public spaces to replace Main Streets. But as Light pointed out, the transition to suburban malls brought new inequities of access and limited the space’s functions to those that served commercial interests.

      Nice historical comparison.

    1. Yeah, "virtual attribute" seems like dated terminology to me, so conceptually just a method.
    2. I see a 'virtual attribute' as something we're forced to implement when using frameworks, ORMs and the like. Something that lets us inject our code into the path of whatever metaprogramming has been put in place for us. In a simple PORO like this, I don't see how it has meaning; it's just a method. :)

      Hmm, good point. Maybe so. Though I think I'm fine with calling it a virtual property here too. :shrug:

    3. has_sauce is a "virtual attribute", a characteristic of the model that's dependent on the underlying toppings attribute.

    1. quando até agora o domínio do virtual aplicado às nossas vidas se resumia à área do lazer (jogos de computador), e que muitas vezes é apontado como nocivo para o desenvolvimento pessoal e social.

      Acho estranho esta afirmação quando existe tanta coisa que se faz no domínio virtual, só mostra um total desconhecimento do que é trabalhar com realidades virtuais. Na área da informática já trabalhamos com servidores e máquinas virtuais à mais de 10 anos que fazem todas as tarefas dos seus irmãos reais, talvez se surpreendam quando verificarem a quantidade de coisas que se fazem com entidades virtuais. Em relação aos jogos também não servem só para o lazer. Veja-se este vídeo de James Paul Gee acerca das competências que se podem desenvolver a partir dos jogos para coisas muito simples como a resiliência em resolver problemas: Big Thinkers: James Paul Gee on Grading with Games

      It dawns on me that these sort of virtual reality-type images that have been around for ages aren't too dissimilar to how I see the world with various mnemonic techniques. They're also the closes way of potentially helping modern first world Western cultures better understand how many indigenous societies have seen the world in the past.
