Distributed Educational Alliance Networks (DEAN)
Re-Training & Education Methods & Technology

"Everyone who has a brain understands the benefits of decentralized computing. Billions of neurons in the human brain constantly interact with ganglia (neuron message centers), providing us with the greatest example of self-healing distributed networks."

This was a quote from the book where you can find more details on distributed knowledge technologies.
When we try to make sense of disparate scientific data, evaluate security risks, or work in educational environment, requirements for knowledge sharing and integration might go far beyond capacities offered by mainstream centralized computing. Distributed Knowledge Technologies described in the book help us overcome these limitations. Book readers will be able to download the DEAN product after its release later this year and use it as their educational labs and the entrance into distributed knowledge marketplace.

Knowledge and complexity in education grow exponentially. The current centralized computing model does not scale well in this case.

In the world of distributed networks, when you need a service that is outside of your local resources, your machine can get help and borrow specialized data and services from multiple peers, not just from a single Web server that has to collect all services. This type of collaboration allows multiple schools and departments directly share their resources in the way that is complementary to existing Web-based educational services.

The access to DEAN is strictly governed by user's privileges.
Students can use DEAN to work with personal labs, participate in business simulation applications, contribute their individual and teamwork, and collaborate with their teams and instructors.
Researchers, instructors, and schools can use DEAN to share or trade curriculum, important scientific data, and resources.

DEAN is a cost efficient software package that includes knowledgebase and a set of software commodities that represent personal labs facilities. Students can practice up-to-date skills in business simulations, create real-life distributed applications in their team projects, and continue using DEAN beyond school boundaries to capture and share their knowledge.
Extracts of DEAN's features:
- building working profiles
- serving wired and wireless clients
- providing content-based subscriptions
- creating business simulation environments
- conducting usage-based evaluation of data and services
- granting promotions (higher ranks) to best student and instructor's work
- creating Topic Maps and Ontology Graphs to capture interrelationships between multiple subjects
- arranging facilities in-school and beyond to grow and distribute subject matter knowledge
