OER Annotation Summit 2014 | OER Annotation
"Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for a 2-day summit focused on OER annotation, co-hosted by Hypothes.is, the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE), and Lumen Learning. The meeting is being supported in large part by an OER technology grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. This meeting is one of a series planned to explore opportunities and barriers to fostering greater collaboration in solving shared technology challenges for open education (OER) projects. This particular meeting will focus on annotation and metadata challenges and solutions for OER, especially with an eye toward integrating tools that allow for more distributed and participatory mark-up. Questions about metadata standards, protocols, and presumed benefits, as well as associated tools for facilitating search, discovery, and engagement, have been a significant part of the discourse around OER for years; however, we believe we may now have the necessary elements (and not just technologies) and distributed support to turn a corner on this front ..."
