I especially like the idea of the class room as a micro public space, publics (plural) in general and the "ungrading project".
Also, the discussion on the relationship of research and teaching made me think.
Good morning @Downes! I'm in the middle of planning my autumn course on "Architectures of the Web". Ball's Metaverse, the Fediverse and the Old Web are topics I want to deal with hands-on using Beaker browser, IPFS, Raspberry and static site generators.
I know that you also had courses on the distributed/decentralized web in the past. Do you have any key learnings from your work with students?
Excited to announce the next @firstname.lastname@example.org & blinry project: ✨ The Everything Exhibition ✨, a generator that creates virtual 3D exhibitions for any topic, based on open data. Supported by the @email@example.com!

Took some time and set up a space to aggregate and curate scientific communities and topics on #Matrix. It can be hard to find good, serious communities relevant to your interests, so this is my initiative to make it easier.
For anyone interested, you can find the space via this link: https://matrix.to/#/!lBZPyclsQiWAwbHjTk:matrix.org?via=matrix.org&via=nordgedanken.dev&via=t2bot.io
Boosts are welcome. Would be nice if this could be a thing, especially given the experimental support for LaTeX in Element's composer it could be of some interest to scientific communities.

Hi @VickyRampin! I'd like to ask you a question about #Taguette. Two of my BA students need to analyze transcripts of interviews they have conducted. I would like to introduce them to #Taguette. Although it would be possible and easy for them to set up two local installations, I'd prefer one web-based and Docker-based installation for them. The only thing that I worry about is how to secure this installation from data loss. Do you have any experiences with that?

Hi @VickyRampin! This Wednesday I'm going to introduce a couple of PhD students to Taguette as well as to Hypothesis, HedgeDoc, Zotero and zoterobib. The topic is collaboration in research and teaching.
Do you have any experience with Taguette written down on the web, such as didactic scenarios or research projects with students?
