A webinar with Martin Poulter from Open Education SIG of ALT.
As Jorum repository is set to retire in September 2016 (http://www.jorum.ac.uk/retirement/). Martin Poulter will be considering whether Wikimedia has a role in Open Education and can be used in ways not previously considered – part repository, part VLE, part academic publishing and collaboration. Is there an opportunity here to move more into Wikimedia? Can Wikimedia take up some of these roles? This webinar promises to be an interesting discussion.
Dr Martin Poulter is the ICT Manager for the Economics Network based at the University of Bristol. He has worked as the Wikimedia Ambassador for Jisc and as the Wikimedian In Residence at the Bodleian Libraries and this summer was named UK Wikimedian of the Year.
The session will run in Blackboard Collaborate 11, and can be accessed on the day with the following link:
