OSF Academy Inaugurates with Eleven Screencasts

Open Semantic Framework

Another Expansion in Documentation for the Open Semantic Framework

The Open Semantic Framework is a complete foundation to bring semantic technology capabilities to the enterprise. OSF has applications from enterprise information integration to collaboration networks and open government. It has been under development since 2009, leveraging a set of robust open source engines and connecting Web services and architecture, and is now in its third major version. OSF is fully integrated as a semantic technology extension to the Drupal content management system.

Structured Dynamics, the developer of OSF, with the generous support of SD clients, has been committed to provide excellent documentation and tech transfer support to OSF since its inception. For examples, OSF now has a nearly 500 document technical support library, plus many automated means for installing and testing the OSF stack.

Yet, as all of us know, written documentation is not always discovered nor read. The paradigm for technology transfer is shifting to online tutorials and screencasts.

In keeping with that trend, SD has committed itself to develop a (hopefully) complete suite of online screencasts and tutorials geared to the nuts-and-bolts of how to install, configure, test, manage and use an OSF installation. Our intent is to aid users to bring semantics into the enterprise without the need for external support or cost.

We call this curriculum of tech transfer screencasts and video tutorials the OSF Academy.

Over the past week we have been releasing the first dozen screencasts in this series. With this foundation, it is now time to make a broader announcement of the OSF Academy.

So, On With it Now

Welcome!

We are on pace to release many dozens of specific screencasts on all use and management aspects of OSF. Please stay tuned over the coming weeks.

You can always see the complete contents of the YouTube channel at the Open Semantic Framework Academy.

Also, as basic grounding, also know that the OSF Wiki section on screencasts is another central access point to this content.

The Series Begins

Most of the screencasts are quite specific in certain use aspects of the Open Semantic Framework. However, tutorial #1 is a useful overview of OSF and the series:

The Next Ten Screencasts

SD’s CTO, Fred Giasson, is the key demo jockey for most of the OSF Academy screencasts. Many of these screencasts are technical, and all are specific and focused. Access each screencast by number below. There is also a (blog post) associated with each screencast that provides useful background information and links.

Where Next?

We have nearly four dozen additional screencasts in our plan to round out introductory material to OSF. Please monitor our OSF channel on YouTube to stay on top of these releases.
