I did see that on the website. The uni's financial situation might not be in a place to do much of anything at the moment but I'll keep an eye on it.
@drb our annual membership fees are incredibly modest - probably less than a single seat of some of the Uni's more expensive proprietary software tools... or a rounding error on a departmental budget ;)
@drb departments can join independently, too :) - in any case, as an open charitable foundation, happy to chat and nothing to hide.
@drb if your university identified just one #FOSS service from our many proven services (https://tech.oeru.org/oeru-web-services-february-2021 ) and deployed it for the benefit of your university, they're likely to save many times the membership cost. And with your CC-By Basic Principles of Work and Energy videos, you're already most of the way towards providing two OER-based courses for learners across the globe!.😉 Just sayin'
Some kind of action program would be nice, where student bodies 'unionize' on using proper tech. Having their own platform, they take everything from the walled garden tech, process and collaborate on their own terms, and only send final results back on a minimal-as-possible interaction basis.
@wyatwerp @humanetech Yes - all our courses are designed for others to replicate at their whim. Universities can offer formal academic credit for them without the investment in building their own courses. Each course is already accredited by one or more of our partner institutions.... so lots of options. Happy to discuss it further!
