University 2.0: Open source as a cornerstone

I will be presenting at a pre-conference workshop at the MoodleMoot 09 Conference, which is being jointly offered with the Sloan-C Symposium in San Francisco on June 17-19. My presentation is from 1pm-4pm on Wednesday June 18th. Here are some details about the workshop.

University 2.0: Open source as a cornerstone

Bob Rubinyi, Director, Distributed Education, University of Minnesota
Terence Armentano, Assistant Director, Center for Online and Blended Learning, Bowling Green State University
Marc Oehlman, Interim Director, Center for Academic Technology, CSU Monterey Bay
Andrew Roderick, Technology Development Manager, Academic Technology, San Francisco State University

As budgets decrease, the use of open source software for enterprise-level applications has increased within higher education. This session will examine current open-source development and integration projects at four different campuses and strategies each campus has implemented related to teaching and learning, technology management, and organizational administration.

It's an honor to be on the panel, and I am excited to share what we have done at BGSU as well as learn what others are doing at their respective universities. This topic hits the tip of the iceberg with regard to what can be done with open source at the university. This will be an exciting conference!
