CUNY IT Conference, 2007

“Open Source, Open Learning, Open Communities: Exploring Alternatives to Blackboard”

Presentation for the CUNY IT Conference at John Jay College in New York City on November 30th, 2007

This panel examined three uses of open-source tools for teaching and learning, beginning with Mikhail Gershovich’s discussion of Baruch’s cac.cophany, a blog that has allowed the Bernard Schwartz Institute to share its work with local and global audiences. Followed by Matt Gold sharing his experience teaching an online new-media studies course with a number of open-source applications for collaborative writing and research projects. Finally, I presented the blogging initiative at UMW which has brought an entire institution into conversation with itself and the world.
