If you're interested or just want to share some ideas/thoughts, let me know. Maybe we could all put our minds together in a chatroom or similar.
@syntax tell me more!
Well, my course is nearing completion, so I'll have a good example of the sort of content I have in mind. I intend to post screenshots, demos etc. soon. Then who knows what next... That's what I'd like to discuss with people. I'd love to work on a course with others who could offer their own skills, whether that be content, design or development.
@syntax for a while I made a living by delivering courses on copyright law, libre licensing, privacy, FLOSS, digital human rights, and broadly speaking philosophy around that.
Would need to refresh my knowledge esp. about copyright, but yeah, sounds interesting.
@rysiek Cool. My dream is to basically do what I do now (elearning writer/developer), but to be able to focus solely on courses on FLOSS, privacy, digital rights etc. If you'd like to consider working on a future course (e.g. FLOSS, maybe an intro to GNU/Linux or something similar), we could maybe get together in a chatroom and scope the project. I can also discuss further the software I use (Adapt), the LMS (Moodle) etc.
@syntax @rysiek Cool Idea! I can imagine that a training catalog around Ethical Tech/Digital Rights etc. would be interesting for young political movements - we were just looking for an information security course for our union, for example. I am curious to see what you are currently working on. Count me in
@alt3 Great, I'll send links once the course is ready and hosted on my LMS (with free guest access).
@syntax @moodlenet @privacyint @privacytools @eff @humanetech @fsfe @moznews @alt3 @dajbelshaw Sam, we'd LOVE to help your effort by providing a platform (all #FOSS, as I said) for the sort of materials you describe (you may find that we're already providing some of it, but would definitely appreciate your contributions!!
@lightweight Brilliant! I will make a note to send you links once my course is finished and hosted on my LMS. My plan is to share the source files with anyone who wants them, as well as host it on Moodle with guest access.
I'd say the goal would be closer to educating people on tech-relatwd topics rather than how to learn online. The LMS and the interactive learning units aren't the whole picture. There will be plenty of additional resources like links, activities etc, and I try to write about such topics in blog form on my own website when I get the time.
