“Small Pieces Loosely Joined”: Open-Source Possibilities for Course Redesign
Co-presented with John More of Virginia Tech and Martha Burtis of the University of Mary Washington on November 9th, 2007 at the Learning by Design conference held in Richmond, VA.

This session explored how open-source applications can help shape and sustain vital communities of learning. We will discuss collaborative research/learning management systems such as Sakai and Moodle; blogging platforms such as WordPress; social networking applications such as Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter; web-hosting options both on- and offsite; and other innovative practices that center on emerging technologies. We will also consider Creative Commons licenses and implications for intellectual property.
