Welcome to Wikipedia and Communicate OER![edit]

Thank you for signing up on the Communicate OER team page! There's a great group forming -- so far, we have more than 25 people, with a broad range of backgrounds and interests; we have professors, librarians, instructional designers, and more. Members also span a variety of countries and language proficiencies. As we set out to improve articles about openness in education, it looks like we will have a great team to work with. If you haven't looked through the list, I encouraged you to read through it: WP:Communicate OER Team.

Whether or not you're at the Open Education conference this week, we encourage you to engage with us -- we're expecting a flurry of activity as we launch! If you're here, come visit us in room C010 any time; or come to one of our daily 45 minute intro sessions in the Remixathon track in room C215.

Another great way to stay engaged is through the project's "talk page" (aka "discussion page"): WT:COMMOER. Please always feel free to add ideas, questions, etc. at the bottom of that page -- even if you just want to say hi, and go into a little more detail about what you're hoping to work on -- we'd love to hear from you. (I just posted a note at the bottom, exploring the open education article, and seeking input into how we can go about improving it -- take a look!)

If you're just looking to get started, we have a page for that -- WP:Communicate OER Do -- intended to collect ideas of projects we can work on. There's currently a "getting started" recipe for how to post a review of a Wikipedia article; check back for further ideas in the coming days. (And if you're game, feel free to add your own!)

Looking forward to working together, -Pete (talk) 18:19, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Come back to us, TJ! Some interesting movement towards an OER policy article or subsection at Wikipedia_talk:Communicate_OER - lots of great how-to vids, etc. in our School of Open class pages. Drop me a line if you'd like to get involved - Sara FB (talk) 00:39, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

OER policy article is up![edit]

Hi TJ, work on an OER policy article is finally underway (!) - please have a look at Open_educational_resources_policy. This article is new as of last week and could use a lot of work. Unless you've worked on this kind of article before you might want to start with a review on the TALK page at Talk:Open_educational_resources_policy:

  1. Hit the New Section tab at the top
  2. Fill in a title
  3. Review the article in the text section, mentioning what changes you think should be made, and especially any citations we could add!
  4. Sign your name with a dash and four tildes - this will be replaced by your actual user info and a timestamp.
  5. Hit Show Preview to see what your post will look like
  6. Hit Save Page!

Or if you are a more experienced user already, please have at it. :) We could really use a N American view of the topic.

Let me know if you have any questions by posting on my talk page. Glad to help anytime! - Sara FB (talk) 22:32, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
