Meaning of Digital Artifact[edit]

An earlier editor added a series of improperly cited pieces of information in defining "Digital Artifact". The section has been moved to this part of the talk page until sources can be found.

An alternative use of the term Digital Artefact arises from the Latin phrase arte factum, from ars skill + facere to make.

From the Oxford English dictionary, the definition of an artefact is an object made by a human being, typically one of cultural or historical interest. Another definition is that it is observed in scientific experiments or investigations, not naturally present but occurring as a result of preparative or investigative procedures.

A digital artefact is made by a human being with skill or art. Although digital content is produced using technology tools and applications, it is "made with skill" and may result from preparative or investigative procedures. Learners need to be taught both the knowledge and skills required to create high quality "artefacts" that can compete against the best in the world. Digital artefacts include information prepared or shared in digital forms e.g. photos, videos, digitally prepared text, multimedia, databases, websites, presentations, music, e-books, programs, coding, etc. (talk) 08:58, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Suggested things to add[edit]

Can we add in things like the science or algorithms behind what causes the artifacts in each case, as well as common types of resulting artifacts? Also add the ways that the various types are mitigated. --vgmddg (look | talk | do) 03:12, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
