Terrific international representation at the #OERu19 partners university, including from Brazil, Indonesia, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, the US, the UK, the West Indies, Ireland, and of course Canada
Balancing different needs, respecting different traditions, creative problem solving, sharing power, keeping current, and sustaining our work 😂 A snapshot from the #OERu19 meeting
The whole open bunch at #oeru19
I'm also looking forward to taking part in the #oeru19 partner meeting in Dublin, coming up soon!
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!
