Recent newsflash on big higher education win for us with the good people of the State of Washington.
Just got back from a trip up to Vancouver for the LAK12 conference on using big data, analytics and visualization to improve learning (some cool links to check out: US DoE Report on LA, OAAI/Sakai, SolarRearch on LA, Katy Borner Macroscope, Gapminder, SciMaps). On the way back I dropped in to see Bruce at AWS to talk about partnership around the Oracle Education Cloud on what turned out to be on a very interesting day to be in downtown Seattle.
Here's an OK screenshot of from Elbie's terrific demo today of Pittsburgh County Schools data being fed into a Google Earth engine and rendering real-time analytics and visualization on actual student and school performance in the area all through a standard porlet in Webcenter.
