The Value of Open Data in your Community
Started on Mar 23, 2012 by Emily Cole
The Akron Digital Media Center and the Akronist located in the Akron-Summit Public Library provides free citizen journalism training and free classes. They offer a series of classes, and have now chosen to make their course curriculum open data and accesible to the public. Wikipedia defines open data as: "the idea that certain data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. The goals of the open data movement are similar to those of other "Open" movements such as open source, open content, and open access."
