7 August 2013. The FLOSS Manuals Foundation and Adam Hyde are collaborating on a one year project funded by the European Comission. The project is titled: Book Sprints for ICT Research – Testing the practice of Book Sprints as a new paradigm of collaborative writing for ICT researchers and innovators. A Book Sprint is a collaborative process where a group of six to twelve people get together to produce a book in five days or less. Participants work intensively under the guidance of a facilitator to create high quality materials.
Saturday 3 August 2013. The FLOSS Manuals Foundation board members live in different parts of the world. The Observe Hack Make Festival was a good opportunity for those of us in town to meet up. Pictured are three board members in Alkmaar, The Netherlands. From left to right: Janet Swisher (treasurer), Eric Kluitenberg (secretary) and Sacha van Geffen (president).
This is a call for proposals for the 2013 GSoC Doc Camp. Individuals and projects are invited to submit proposals for the GSoC Doc Camp to be held at Google's Mountain View headquarters in California from October 14 - October 18.
What is it?
We are happy to announce new manuals in FLOSS Manuals that have also been translated into Farsi for the Internews Europe, Human Rights Connect project.
The first is a summary of Firefox with a focus on security and offline use. The second a short guide to the collaborative writing tool Etherpad.
I wanted to write a quick post outlining the process of a ‘course sprint’ to share with some of the communities that I’m involved with including the P2PU, School of Open and the FLOSS Manuals community. I think this methodology can be of use to emerging groups of on-line educators creating open education resources (OERs) about Free Culture and Free Software.
