Great story about a colleague's project to create interactive, browser-based activities to go along with an in logic: bccampus.ca/2020/02/06/homewor I can't wait to see the results of this project by Dave Gilbert at !

Bryan van Norden has an amazing and growing list of suggested readings on what he calls the “less commonly taught philosophies” (at least in N America), including African, Asian, Continental, and more. Great places to get started to diversify readings in courses! bryanvannorden.com/suggestions

Very intriguing post by Martin Lenz on the important details of why asking students to learn how to ask philosophical questions (in addition to answering) is valuable. Via Daily Nous. handlingideas.blog/2020/01/31/

A local art shop has a daily art challenge each February—it’s time to start again! Anyone can join in. See here: opusartsupplies.com/odp-detail

Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!

Going to dig into this! An openly licensed, free book on understanding document accessibility, from Ryerson Uni in Canada. pressbooks.library.ryerson.ca/

Looking for relevant research:

Ride sharing/hailing services just got go-ahead to operate in Vancouver (BC, Canada). It's all over the news.

One thing I haven't heard much about: the potential environmental impact. Are there likely to be more cars on the roads/people choosing this over transit or biking? I expect research has been done on this sort of question...anyone know of any?

I'm editing an open book available publicly available on web & also downloadable in PDF & ebook. I have a question about the accessibility of how I'm doing premises and conclusions for philosophical arguments with ordered lists <ol>. Please see this post (replies here or there welcome!) rebus.community/t/logic-ed-ben

Ack...I mean, the resource is great for making complex visual images like charts & diagrams accessible. That word got left off my previous post. Not just how to make them, but how to make them accessible! pcc.edu/instructional-support/

Just learned about this handbook for making complex visual images such as charts, diagrams, mathematical graphs, and more. It's super helpful for anyone posting educational content online! Plus, it's licensed. pcc.edu/instructional-support/

The uni of British Columbia Vancouver (where I work) has a new grant fund for creation/adaptation/use of open educational resources, & I'm reading so many proposals for wonderful projects. It's great to see so much interest!

Testing a cross-posting service from Mastodon to Twitter. Will this image come across, with an alt text description on Twitter as well?

Trying out an If This Then That applet to make Mastodon posts automatically go to my Twitter account, like @clintlalonde post here: edtechfactotum.com/cross-posti

Let's see if this works...
