WE ALSO NEED SOMEONE FROM EUROPE, IDEALLY FROM FRANCE.


  • Do we want judges to stick every year?
    • We should roll them.
    • Someone from the conference (sponsoring institution).
    • Ping the conference chair.
  • No expectation that they will attend the conference.
  • Follow up on people who submitted
  • IBM has commited for next years.

3. Debriefing from ELI (Matt)

I met with Stacy Morrone and John Gosney from IUPUI.

  1. Repository: They are building OnCourse Minutes (YouTube style overviews of practices/tools)
    • If we use tags, confluence could become a place to define and negociate them, in order to develop a common vocabulary.
  2. Templates:
    • John suggested to have an outside tool that would prompt the professor in order to help them build a syllabus. The professor would then copy and paste the HTML page in Resources. Could become a unique external and internal resource (instead of having multiple instances of the same syllabus in different systems).
    • The Calendar tool could be the first screen. Would need to show the month instead of the week as a default.
  3. #* We all agreed that we would need a WYSIWYG HTML editing tool that could easily link to other tools in Sakai (Resources, Assignments, Learning modules in Melete, Announcements, etc.)
  4. My blog entry about Twitter and job aids.
    • Tiny bits must be indexed to be searchable.

4. Other topics 

  • Finding a time to meet Michael: everybody agrees
  • Paris: Robin can work on the Paris agenda

5. Repository

  • Nate: status - interested in joining with OSP community.
    • Systematic revamp of OSP libraby has made it broader. Already in place to capture practices
    • AACU has already joined forces
    • Carnegie Foundation - already had a repository. Carnegie Commons. Showcase-like.
    • Merlot - referatory: reference to examples. Add a "Add to Merlot" button to our database. 
    • Everybody should have a new look at it.
    • Must rebrand the repository to make it more general, beyond Sakai.
    • Contact with Alison Bloodworth from Fluid. Cross project repositories at JA-SIG.
    • Try to migrate what is in Confluence in the OSP repository.
    • Building a task force to rebrand (OSP/AACU/TLgroup)
    • Resource at Marist could be the project manager.
    • Use the repository as a posting process.
  • No labels
