Old news/WC OSS series
March 12 Marks Series Launch by International Group on the Impact of Open Source Software on Education
Beginning March 12, 2007, a collection of international authors will post brief online articles featuring their perspectives on the impact of Open Source Software (OSS) on education. The posts will appear biweekly on Terra Incognita, the official blog of Penn State’s World Campus. The authors will also spend time responding to questions and engaging in dialog after their postings have been made. After a few days, the postings, discussion, and a brief summary will be reformatted and made available on WikiEducator as Open Educational Resources.
The inaugural posting on March 12 will be an interview with Ruth Sabean, assistant vice provost for educational technology in UCLA's College of Letters and Science. Dr. Sabean managed the evaluation process at UCLA that resulted in the selection of the open source application Moodle.
