    Ancestry Research found in Modern Education Tools

    New Year's Day updates <>
    Family Genealogy & History Internet Education Directory

    Examples: Top Search Engines and Directories
    brings out the best, under Instructions for General
    Internet Use. We have added, The Open University's
    OpenLearn website: Information on the Web (T180_5)
    Foundation skills to use search engines confidently
    to locate both information and images on the Web
    and learn how to critically assess and reference the
    information you have found for study purposes.
    Beginning on page 13, is #3.3 Focused search sites
    "An alternative to using general purpose search engines
    is to make use of focused search engines that only
    index known genealogical sites. . . ."
    Beginning on page 28, is an Appendix: Genealogical Resources

    Schools - Colleges - Universities:
    Alumni and Genealogy Education
    now has a worldwide comprehensive resource
    for current open online distance education,
    under Online Education and Resources.

    Besides having a "Massive List of Free Education
    Online For Autodidacts", which includes tons of
    educational resources, such as learning languages
    on iTunes, there is Open Education Resources
    (OER) Index. This site includes: "teaching and
    learning materials that are freely available online
    for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor,
    student, or self-learner. Examples of OER include:
    full courses, course modules, syllabi, lectures,
    homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom
    activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations,
    and many more resources contained in digital media
    collections from around the world."

    REPOSITORIES of interest include Fathom Archive,
    provided by Columbia University, which has:
    Jewish Studies, . . . " Hebrew manuscripts reflect
    regional variations in materials, culture and religious
    sensibility, and they consider how scribal practices
    and literary tastes evolved over the centuries . . ."
    .. . .
    University of California eScholarship Repository has:
    Objectivity in History, . . . The purpose of this
    paper is to define a concept of objectivity based
    on criteria of comparison, . . .
    .. . .
    Wikipedia, with its related WikiEducator,
    developing free and open educational content for
    the world. . . . " a partnership that will make it possible
    to obtain high quality print and word processor copies
    of articles from Wikipedia and other wiki educational
    resources. . . ."

    Additionally, on another side (just the tip of the ice burg),
    is: Computer - Internet - Software: Genealogy Programs
    Support for Photography & Digital Preservation has:
    Picturing the family
    " These photographs provide another type of record
    that can offer insights into our family history. But
    what can they tell us? How can we elicit the information
    they hold? And how do we analyse or evaluate that
    information? The purpose of this unit is to suggest
    how to approach the interpretation of the photographic
    record. . . ."
