Hello all. I work for the OER Foundation as the Open Source Technologist (& also the only technologist). It's my job to build and maintain the open source infrastructure supporting the #oeru's efforts to give *everyone* an opportunity to reach their educational potential. #introduction #oeru19 That infrastructure includes this Mastodon site - welcome to the Fediverse! If you're not sure what that means: https://newatlas.com/what-is-the-fediverse/56385/ For other examples: https://fediverse.party

@oemb1905 interesting looking at Schaefer IT Consulting... I ran my own FOSS bespoke dev and IT integration shop (99.9% #FOSS, of course!) for many years... looks like a solid outfit! Out of interest, if you haven't come across it, BitWarden might be of interest to you and your customers - here's how we use it: https://tech.oeru.org/setting-your-own-bitwarden-password-keeper-and-sync-server
I get frustrated when people in industries who could benefit hugely from better use of tech bemoan the inequity in tech (I agree!) but justify their own inaction & non-participation (or defend persisting with crappy corporate proprietary software that tramples their interests) by saying adapting & learning is "too hard"... It especially bugs me to hear educators say this... sure, learning *is* hard. If it was easy... we wouldn't need educators. Get involved now to make it easier for others!
