Today I'm working on refining the assessment for Planning a Project . The 3rd micro-course for the 's Introduction to Project Management.

The OLDaily and OLWeekly mailing lists have been rebooted. If you want to receive either email newsletter you'll need to resubscribe here: downes.ca/subscribe.htm (or you could simply follow @OLDaily on Twitter and get posts as I write them (I'm not sure it's in the spirit of Mastodon to autosend my posts here)).

State of the Commons report just published in time for stateof.creativecommons.org/ Timely resource for our course.

Hi Dan, welcome to the OERu family on Mastodon. We're grateful for your generous gift of time to support the learning community.

Hello students of ,
I am here as a volunteer facilitator in case you need non-technical help. I'm also here as a researcher to observe how this course works. You can find more info about my background and research here: bit.ly/2IsGk6o Enjoy the course!

#FreeCulture and #FreeSoftware advocacy often focuses on remixability and hackability. I think another aspect is important to talk about, due to its universal appeal: permanence.

The tools we develop, the websites we build, the music we share under free&open licenses -- _they will be with us_ as long as we care to maintain and share them.

Free culture, in that sense, is an incredible cooperative enterprise across all humanity. It is unlike nearly any other endeavor. It is a joyful thing! :)

Just a heads up for everyone - I'll be doing an upgrade of this Mastodon instance (at mastodon.oeru.org) in the next day or so, so the site will be down for a few minutes (and perhaps a bit longer).

Hey Greek folks, Mastodon isn't currently translated into Greek at all, but it could be! We have a Weblate, which is a website where you can submit translations: weblate.joinmastodon.org/proje

In the spirit of sharing, here's the link to the video & slides from my presentation at #OEGlobal18 in Delft wp.me/p4Ng5z-14K

If you're into working with humans, free software & cryptography, and you love the idea of helping news organizations break their biggest stories based on submissions by whistleblowers, you may want to come work with me! New opening at Freedom of the Press Foundation just went up - boosts appreciated:

Love that my favorite Android Masto app, #Tusky, is open source. Love the fact that #Pinafore and #Halcyon exist as alternative web UIs. Love that #Pleroma is coming along well as an alternative #ActivityPub server. Love that the sex worker community on #Switter is actively working on building open source tech that works for their use case. Love to see instances like #OpenSocialAfrica and vis.social.

Y'all inspire me that this open source/free software thing may actually work out in the end. :)

@Dan_Blick Thanks for the follow. Of interest - is @SNHU doing much on the front these days? Keen to catch up.

I love that all urls take 23 characters of your 500 limit, regardless of actual url length. This means there's absolutely no need to use url shorteners on masto. I bet this isn't widely known, so let this be a #tootorial for you.

Great interview with Eugen Rochko @Gargron - founder and lead developer of the Mastodon social network software we use at . I encourage learners to listen and consider how these themes relate to digital citizenship: softwaredaily.com/post/5acf3c9

Hi @GrazynaN Welcome to the OERu's social media corner of the Internet. Glad you could join us!
