@jonathan @haacksnetworking could be better. Maybe it's just the word "free" I dislike. "Liberty" would be better, but English has no adjective form of "liberty". Liberated is close but its past tense form is problematic. I guess ultimately it would be ideal if all software was libertatious (not a word) and that way we could just say "software" without qualification.

Today, our community college math department met ... and I was asked to share out some thoughts on digital learning. Overall, I break down the approaches into synchronous and asynchronous learning approaches ... read my full set of musings here: @lightweight @mackiwg

This is the first in a series of posts about free schooling. In short, free schooling refers to an informal association of educational leaders and students that agree to the free schooling credo. Read on for more information:

Happy to report that the Haacking Club will be competing in the Cyber Patriot National Defense competition again this year, but unlike previous years, the club is now competing directly under Haack's Networking as the sponsoring academic organization. This is the first milestone in what we hope will be many more for this academic organization, including a potential partnership with the OERu to offer these youngsters micro-credentialing @lightweight @mackiwg

@lightweight @mackiwg I mentioned this before but I just re-realized this answers my earlier question - THIS IS the explicit Free Software and OERu publication here. Again, great work ... more on this later ...

@mackiwg @lightweight okay, i have developed a new and more important question ... can you point me to the precise location (or best location) where the importance of having both back end Free Software and front-end Open Education is explicitly argued for, or given a rational for, in your body of resources ... I have found in bits in pieces, but I'm gathering you have a standard location that you send folks to in order to address this connection that causes "radical" openness ???

@mackiwg @lightweight This past year I was homeschooling my kids and taking care of my wife - the Haacking Club I run took time off, but we started meeting again this past Spring ... Now that my wife is stable, I have kicked off a new website and level of energy here, and will definitely use OERu toolchain to develop courses ... here is the new website, including mission, safe space, and more - feedback welcome ... haackingclub.haacksnetworking.

@mackiwg @lightweight must have parsed the syntax incorrectly, none of my menu links work

@mackiwg @lightweight - it is a small beginning ... basically, time to build (borrow) mediawiki syntax and get a course that fits my needs built up ... need to look into buttons for interaction, completion, grades (formative feedback that is), and so on ... appreciated

@mackiwg @lightweight what are some of the major open educational resource conferences ... ones that are radically Free, that is ... ? can you point me in the right direction ... ?

@mackiwg @lightweight It just occurred to me that I can leverage wikieducator to turn all of my student's haacking club tutorials here: into open classes on my OERu WP here: and essentially open my own, independent, libre/gratis course offerings in a much more formal manner ... ty again

@mackiwg @lightweight one thing that stood out was your use of the term "tertiary education" instead of "higher" - i rather like this and will adopt it henceforward
