I've now created a public #freelearning #Element room at freelearningfoss:matrix.org -- My intention is to use this room to bring together anyone interested in contributing to #elearning made with #FOSS. I may soon start a range of courses on #Linux subjects. Join the room and share your thoughts!
I was recently recommended https://tryhackme.com and I can confirm it's a brilliant site. I've been going down the #Kali rabbit hole recently and it's great to have a site like this with lots of interactive #elearning, a lot of which is free. I may even submit my own learning content someday.
Anyone else using Mailfence for private and secure #email? I used to use them as my primary before discovering @protonmail. I've recently paid for Mailfence account so I can set up SMTP on my #freelearning site (https://lms.samhowell.uk). Haven't managed to get #SMTP working yet, however...
1. Go to the URL provided below and log in as a guest. This is the easiest method, but will lack features like the ability to submit feedback and track your progress through the course.

Been stuck to my desk this past week but it's been worth it, and I'm edging closer to releasing my Digital Privacy Essentials #elearning course.
I now have a fresh install of #Moodle LMS running on my server, and will be spending the next few days customising the theme and tweaking other settings.
I'll then wrap up the final unit of the course, test and upload, adding various activities and resources in the LMS, before announcing the full release.
Imagine a site dedicated to educating people about ethical tech, privacy, digital rights and more: free interactive #elearning courses on freedom, built with free software...
1. What courses should be there?
2. Will you help me build them?
First time testing web #accessibility for #Adapt #elearning courses today. Now I can really appreciate the importance and added value of well-written alt text for images, having #ARIA labels etc. I tested with the #FOSS screen reader software #NVDA.
Do you have any thoughts, tips or resources related to accessibility?
Who wants to feature in the 'Why Privacy Matters' unit I'm working on for my course #DigitalPrivacyEssentials? Just reply to this toot with your 'privacy pitch' - how you would explain to someone that #privacy matters. Any responses used will be anonymised and I will let you know if you're featured. Thanks! #elearning #foss #Moodle #Adapt
Hello all! I never did get round to doing a proper intro on my previous instance when joining Mastodon, so here goes:
I'm an #elearning #designer based in the UK, passionate about #privacy, #security, #decentralisation and #opentech in general. Writing and editing is my speciality, but I also have a keen eye for design. I'm currently working on an elearning course called Digital Privacy Essentials, which will soon be free for everyone under CC licence (watch this space).
