Jump to navigation Jump to search

A Data Sink is a reservoir that accumulates and stores collected for an indefinite period. The process by which data sinks to the repository from other data resources is partially performed

  • by technical format conversion e.g. XML to JSON.
  • by editing and revising the database records itsself for better multiformat application in the joint repository.

Learning Task[edit | edit source]

  • Wikiversity stores learning resources and meta-data. How can a Wikiversity learning resource be used outside a digital environment in an educational context (exported PDF document, Wiki quiz performed on paper with evaluation)? Application of a data sink concept on Open Educational Resource requires an export from the sink into other export formats that fit to the application of the educational resources.
