@MDGarasic (on birdsite) just started discussing #technology and #ethics in an open course. Feel free to join http://www.hoou.de/projects/1d373d1d-d060-499f-8cfc-aa40a01f530d
The learning project is part of the Hamburg Open Online University where you will find various #OER (Open Educational Resources) on many topics.
It's not too late for a post on #libremonday!
I would like to focus on [#Mattermost](http://mattermost.org/) today which we at our institute use for team collaboration and project management. It is an open source alternative to [Slack](http://slack.com/), but slim and non-distracting.
I would not say that it has become a substitute for email, but for targeted problem solving it works great.
For further reading on Slack and the like in research see e.g. https://www.nature.com/news/how-scientists-use-slack-1.21228
Alright, it's #LibreMonday today!
At Hamburg Universitiy of Technology we use #StaticSiteGenerators for the production of Open Educational Ressources (#OER). We chose #GitBook (https://www.npmjs.com/package/gitbook) first and try #Jekyll now.
Please find some examples here:
If you're worried about #NetNeutrality, you should be worried about web #DRM, too

I use #Zettelkasten http://zettelkasten.danielluedecke.de/ to write and organize my text. From there, I export to #Markdown https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown and convert with #pandoc http://pandoc.org/index.html, #pandoc-citeproc https://hackage.haskell.org/package/pandoc-citeproc using a #Makefile to convert to the final #LaTeX https://www.latex-project.org/ document. tbc...

Good read: "Open Source Friday" wants to remind employees to contribute: https://opensource.com/article/17/6/open-source-friday-give-back
A good initiative as I think. And it could be adopted for the educational context as well: Teachers could remind students every week to contribute to the net as they build their knowledge on the open web every day. They could file an issue on GitHub or add to Wikipedia or write a blogpost. Many opportunities exist.
Right now I'm joining the workshop '„Ich lese diese Bullet points jetzt einfach mal laut vor!“ oder: Powerpoint – Die unbesungene Erfolgsgeschichte eines OER-Tools und unsere Konsequenzen heute' http://www.oercamp.de/17/nord/workshops/#nordA2c at #OERcamp17.
Collaboratively we are working on a slide set about #OER slides on Google Slides.
Today and tomorrow the #OER community will meet in the north of Germany to join/give sessions and workshops on various topics.
The event will be in German, please find more information on the website http://www.oercamp.de/17/nord/workshops/
Topics I'm interested in:
- Blockchain in science and teaching/learning
- How to deal with Wiley's 5R consistently
- #Mastodon to connect teachers and learners
Me and a colleague will host a workshop on Markdown, GitBook, GitLab and Docker to collaboratively produce and remix #OER, see http://www.hoou.de/p/2017/06/01/ein-technisches-system-fuer-die-kollaborative-oer-entwicklung-im-experimentierfeld-der-tuhh/ (German)
Just released the script of a keynote from "Junges Forum für Medien und Hochschulentwicklung 2017" at Hamburg University.
I gave that speech called "Die Architektur von Offenheit - Überlegungen zur Gestaltung der digitalen Transformation" (German) on June, 15th.
