DIY Educators Gone Wild: Where are the Instructional Mash-Ups?
Brian Lamb, University of British Columbia
The Sakai-OCW-eduCommons Project
Joseph Hardin, University of Michigan
Bringing it all online: discussion tool, tests & quizzes tool, online class support, etc. But how to make it easy for the faculty?
Steps: choose materials, tags, check copyright, create course pages, OCW Review, Export.
Taking the Tools to the Content: Learner Support for OER
David Wiley, Shelley Henson, Justin Ball, COSL/Utah State University
Making Open Content Support Learning or MOCSL is a set of small tools designed specifically to advance the state of the art in supporting end users’ abilities to find educational resources, reuse educational resources, and close the feedback loop between end users and content authors.
OsmoseRSS: aggregator with social component, such as tags, resource sharing, etc. You can create groups to add content that is already generated: from del.icio.us, flickr, 43 things, etc. See also osmoserss.org
Send2Wiki: such a website content and send it to somewhere it can be manipulated
Pheromone: create trails through websites (different ones) so sort of online resource is created
Annorate: lets anotate and rate web pages
RelStore: compare tags and sites
OCW Finder: finds OCW OER.
The simplest the tools, the simplest the interface, the simplest its purpose… the most people will participate.
