This is the story of a web-based information system rebuild. The system in question is www.teachengineering.org, a digital library of K-12 engineering curriculum that was built from the ground up with established technology and which for 13 years enjoyed lasting support from its growing user community and its sponsors. These 13 years, however, cover the period during which smart phones and tablets became commonplace, during which the Internet of Things started replacing the Semantic Web, during which NoSQL databases made their way out of the research labs and into everyday development shops, during which we collectively started moving IT functions and services into ‘the cloud,’ and during which computing performance doubled a few times, yet again. During this same period, TeachEngineering’s user base grew from a few hundred to more than 3 million users annually, its collection size quadrupled, it went through several user interface renewals, and significant functionality was added while having an exemplary service record, and it enjoyed continued financial support from its sponsors.

Yet, although the system architecture could probably have survived a while longer, it started to become clear that with the newer technologies, better and newer services could be developed faster and at lower cost, that moving most of its functionality into the cloud would both boost performance and lower maintenance cost, and that the system’s resource and code footprint could be significantly reduced by rebuilding it on a different architecture, with different and more modern technology.

In this monograph we provide a side-by-side of this rebuild. We lay out the choices made in the old architecture —we refer to it as TE 1.0— and compare and contrast them with the choices made for TE 2.0. We explain why both the 1.0 and 2.0 choices were made and discuss the advantages and disadvantages associated with them.

During the past few years, we’ve witnessed how interconnected our world is. These instances of global interconnection—both positive and negative—have differing impacts on people based on gender while also creating and reinforcing the ways people experience gender. We see that experiences of gender are always shaped by nationality, race/ethnicity, sexual identity, social class, ability, age, and religion. This social construction of gender, its shaping of the world, and its effects on individuals and groups of people are at the core of this textbook.<br /><br /><a href="https://datastudio.google.com/reporting/f4dce762-3758-4e86-b9f3-bcea948067a5">Data dashboard</a>

<em>Defend Dissent</em> is an introduction to cryptography paired with the social impacts of surveillance and the protective potential of encryption, with a focus on US social movements. Each chapter ends with a story that brings social context to the material—from surveillance used against contemporary US protests to the African National Congress’s use of partially manual encryption in fighting apartheid in South Africa in the 80s.<br /><br />This book can be read linearly, or you can pick and choose what you would like to learn about. Each chapter is prefaced with what you should read first (for background) and concludes with what you might want to read next.<br /><br />También disponible en <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/defensadeldisenso/">Español</a><br /><br /><a href="https://datastudio.google.com/reporting/b3615914-c568-48ff-a43b-32a2e65effd2"><em>Data dashboard</em></a>

The purpose of this guide is to provide foundational education for farm and ranch families on how to create a basic business succession and estate plan. In working with farm families, we have identified four fundamental goals for the farm succession planning process: (1) preserving family relationships, (2) strengthening the farm business, (3) protecting the owners and operators from business disruptions, and (4) minimizing the complexity and expense of succession and estate plans. With some basic knowledge, you will be educated consumers of legal and financial services, which may save you time and money as you consult with the attorneys, accountants, and other professionals who are key to creating a successful plan. This guide also gives you a starting point as you consider your alternatives and begin family discussions about the roles that each family member or nonfamily member may play in the future of the farm as a business.<br /><br /><a href="https://datastudio.google.com/reporting/24789e6b-bc8c-47d6-ab6e-74d52e8098ab"><em>Data dashboard</em></a><br /><br />Introduction summary <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/farm-succession-planning/part/video-introductions/#introvid">video</a><br /><br />Chapter 1 summary <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/farm-succession-planning/part/video-introductions/#ch1vid">video</a><br /><br />Chapter 2 summary <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/farm-succession-planning/part/video-introductions/#ch2vid">video</a><br /><br />Chapter 3 summary <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/farm-succession-planning/part/video-introductions/#ch3vid">video</a><br /><br />Chapter 4 summary <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/farm-succession-planning/part/video-introductions/#ch4vid">video</a><br /><br />Chapter 5 summary <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/farm-succession-planning/part/video-introductions/#ch5vid">video</a><br /><br />Chapter 6 summary <a href="https://open.oregonstate.education/farm-succession-planning/back-matter/video-introductions/#ch6vid">video</a>
