Anne, Just a note to say welcome to WikiEducator. I've enjoyed reading about your experiences. Like you I am very interested in how OERs contribute to self-directed learning. Have you read the book "Disrupting Classrooms" by Clayton Christensen, et. al? I wonder if OERs might be the technology that radically changes the way education happens?
I've been very impressed with the pedagogical elements available in WikiEducator. Seems like WE can make some very powerful interactive content modules.
Welcome, and enjoy the workshop. Your WikiNeigbor, --Alison Snieckus 21:48, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
This is an area people can use (if they want) to post comments.
Please to meet you virtually in the workshop. I'm very interested in your experiences, successes and lessons learned from implementing a wiki at Utah Valley University. The OER Foundation (a new non profit) which oversees the funding and administration of WikiEducator will be helping universities get the most out of the wiki approach for OER development -- I want to make sure we don't replicate any mistakes.
There are three lead people on our Wiki here at UVU:
Jared Stein - http://www.uvu.edu/profpages/profiles/show/user_id/4297 Marc Hugentobler - http://www.uvu.edu/profpages/profiles/show/user_id/2151 and Paul Nuffer (firstname.lastname@example.org - he was the 'system admin' guy)
I am mostly a very active user of it. That said, one thing that is annoying to me is that I cannot upload images on our Wiki. I assume this is an intentional setting on our end, though. You can say a lot with images however, so not having that capability is limiting as an end user. Actually, writing that just inspired me to contact Marc on the issue, maybe I will be able to after all :-)
