wireframe

A website wireframe, also known as a page schematic or screen blueprint, is a visual guide that represents the skeletal framework of a website. The wireframe depicts the page layout or arrangement of the website's content, including interface elements and navigational systems, and how they work together. The wireframe usually lacks typographic style, color, or graphics, since the main focus lies in functionality, behavior, and priority of content. In other words, it focuses on 'what a screen does, not what it looks like'. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Wireframe)

wireless

In telecommunications, wireless communication may be used to transfer information over short distances (a few meters as in television remote control) or long distances (thousands or millions of kilometers for radio communications). The term is often shortened to "wireless". It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. Other examples of wireless technology include GPS units, garage door openers and or garage doors, wireless computer mice, keyboards and headsets, satellite television and cordless telephones.

wireless application profile

Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is a technical standard for accessing information over a mobile wireless network. A WAP browser is a web browser for mobile devices such as mobile phones (called "cellular phones" in some countries) that uses the protocol. Before the introduction of WAP, mobile service providers had limited opportunities to offer interactive data services, but needed interactivity to support Internet and Web applications such as: email by mobile phone; tracking of stock-market prices; sports results; news headlines; music downloads. The Japanese i-mode system offers another major competing wireless data protocol. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Wireless application profile (WAP))

wms

Windows Media Services (WMS) is a streaming media server from Microsoft that allows an administrator to generate streaming media (audio/video). Only Windows Media, JPEG, and MP3 formats are supported. WMS is the successor of NetShow Services. In addition to streaming, WMS also has the ability to cache and record streams, enforce authentication, impose various connection limits, restrict access, use multiple protocols, generate usage statistics, and apply forward error correction (FEC). It can also handle a high number of concurrent connections making it ideal[weasel words] for content providers. Streams can also be distributed between servers as part of a distribution network where each server ultimately feeds a different network/audience. Both unicast and multicast streams are supported (multicast streams also utilize a proprietary and partially encrypted Windows Media Station (*.nsc) file for use by a player.) Typically, Windows Media Player is used to decode and watch/listen to the streams, but other players are also capable of playing unencrypted Windows Media content (Microsoft Silverlight, VLC, MPlayer, etc.).

wmv

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a video compression format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. The original video format, known as WMV, was originally designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. The other formats, such as WMV Screen and WMV Image, cater for specialized content. Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), WMV 9 has gained adoption for physical-delivery formats such as HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

wordnet

WordNet is a lexical database for the English language. It groups English words into sets of synonyms called synsets, provides short, general definitions, and records the various semantic relations between these synonym sets. The purpose is twofold: to produce a combination of dictionary and thesaurus that is more intuitively usable, and to support automatic text analysis and artificial intelligence applications. The database and software tools have been released under a BSD style license and can be downloaded and used freely. The database can also be browsed online. WordNet was created and is being maintained at the Cognitive Science Laboratory of Princeton University under the direction of psychology professor George A. Miller.

worldcat

WorldCat is a union catalog which itemizes the collections of 71,000 libraries in 112 countries which participate in the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) global cooperative. It is built and maintained collectively by the participating libraries. Created in 1971, it contains more than 150 million different records pointing to over 1.4 billion physical and digital assets in more than 470 languages. It is the world's largest bibliographic database. OCLC makes WorldCat itself available free to libraries, but the catalog is the foundation for other fee-based OCLC services (such as resource sharing and collection management). WorldCat was founded by Fred Kilgour in 1967. In 2003, OCLC began the "Open WorldCat" pilot program, making abbreviated records from a subset of WorldCat available to partner Web sites and booksellers, to increase the accessibility of its member libraries' collections. In 2006, it became possible to search WorldCat directly at its website. In 2007, WorldCat Identities began providing pages for 20 million "identities", predominantly authors and persons who are the subjects of published titles. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: WorldCat)

wrn

The aim of this Welsh Repository Network (WRN) start-up project bid, run by the University of Wales Aberystwyth (UWA) on behalf of WHELF (Wales Higher Education Libraries Forum), is to put in place an essential building block for the development of an integrated network of institutional digital repositories in Wales. Currently, just two of the 12 HEIs in Wales have open access digital repositories (Aberystwyth and Cardiff), both of which are pilot rather than production models, lightly populated and resident on shared equipment. The project aims to run a centrally managed hardware procurement programme designed to provide every HEI in Wales with dedicated and configured repository hardware by the end of 2007 as a major step towards realisation of the WRN. In close collaboration with the technical, organisational and operational support specifically provided for Welsh HEIs within the JISC funded Repository Support Project (RSP), also to be delivered from UWA, this initiative will provide a cost-effective, collaborative and decisive boost to the repository agenda in Wales and help JISC achieve the critical mass of populated repositories and digital content that is a stated objective of the Repositories and Preservation Programme. Project start date: 2007-04-01. Project end date: 2009-03-31. (Excerpt from this source)

wsrp

Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) is an OASIS-approved network protocol standard designed for communications with remote portlets. The WSRP specification defines a web service interface for interacting with presentation-oriented web services. Initial work was produced through the joint efforts of the Web Services for Interactive Applications (WSIA) and Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) OASIS Technical Committees. With the approval of WSRP v1 as an OASIS standard in September, 2003, these two technical committees merged and continued the work as the Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) OASIS Technical Committee.

x.500

X.500 is a series of computer networking standards covering electronic directory services. The X.500 series was developed by ITU-T, formerly known as CCITT, and first approved in 1988. The directory services were developed in order to support the requirements of X.400 electronic mail exchange and name lookup. ISO was a partner in developing the standards, incorporating them into the Open Systems Interconnection suite of protocols. ISO/IEC 9594 is the corresponding ISO identification. The protocols defined by X.500 includeL DAP (Directory Access Protocol); DSP (Directory System Protocol); DISP (Directory Information Shadowing Protocol); DOP (Directory Operational Bindings Management Protocol). Because these X.500 protocols used the OSI networking stack, a number of alternatives to DAP were developed to allow Internet clients to access to the X.500 Directory using the TCP/IP networking stack. The most well-known alternative to DAP is Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). While DAP and the other X.500 protocols can now use the TCP/IP networking stack, LDAP remains a popular directory access protocol. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: X.500)

x4l sdit

This project will draw together a small team of academics, teachers and data archivists/disseminators in order to create and pilot new data-driven resources. The small-scale set of online learning objects teaching materials to be developed will be based upon British Election Study data which provide a unique source of information for students wishing to explore a range of contemporary political issues in Britain. The proposal is aimed at first year undergraduate and 'A' level or equivalent FE courses in political science, but could be extended more generically to all introductory social studies courses. The resources will be piloted and evaluated in an HE University course and an FE 'A' level course. By using the British Election Survey as its data base, the Britain and Politics module will also "deliver" a unique learning experience to the student. Project start date: 2003-03-01. Project end date: 2004-04-30. (Excerpt from this source)

xcri

The over-arching goals for the Distributed e-Learning (DeL) programme are to facilitate lifelong learning, enhance learner experience and support the widening participation agenda. These goals are predicated on the availability of accurate and relevant information about opportunities for learners. However, the sheer volume of programmes available and the range of disparate individuals who might usefully require or impart information about them means that HE and FE institutions face significant logistical, cultural and structural challenges in ensuring that programmes as they are advertised match programmes as they are approved and delivered. It is imperative to provide definitive specifications that describe accurately the learning opportunities that will be offered in particular locations at particular times. XCRI will be working with institutions and key partners, such as UCAS, to produce a definitive, standards-based XML description that can be transformed as necessary to satisfy the needs of different audiences. Project start date: 2005-04-01. Project end date: 2006-03-31. (Excerpt from this source)

xcri-cap

XCRI-CAP (XCRI Course Advertising Profile) is a very simple web-based technical architecture. Universities, colleges and training providers each offer an XML document describing their courses. Aggregators (such as discovery and guidance services) periodically poll each provider to obtain the latest version of their course catalog using a standard request. The aggregator combines the results to create a catalog to use for searching and for adding features. (Excerpt from this source)

xgrain

The focus of Xgrain is the 'discovery' of journal articles and the like; having the intention of making best use of the JISC-funded Abstract & Indexing (A&I) database services that form part of the DNER and having particular regard to cross-searching and the ways in which A&I databases can be presented for use in learning and teaching. The DNER currently offers a range of high quality, specialised A&I database and electronic tables of contents (ETOC) services providing key discovery facilities for references to journal articles and other information objects that can be accessed from the desktop. However, there is evidence that they are under used, especially in learning and teaching. Xgrain aims to address underlying problems by developing a broker that will offer 'shallow' cross-searching of A&I databases across the DNER (using the Z39.50 protocol among others), with the facility to be transferred into native user interfaces for indepth searching.
