Description

How are educational institutions working together to build technologies tailored to their needs and combine resources using open practices? Explore the nuances of “community source”, where open source meets communities of practice to focus efforts and leverage common resources. We will explore how a wide range of international educational institutions are developing and using open practices to take control of their technology destinies and reshape the intersection between teaching, learning, research, and technology. Learn from examples in courseware (eg, Sakai), multimedia (eg, Opencast Matterhorn), and administrative systems (eg, Kuali).
