WikiEducators

For some time now, I have been engaged in experimenting with the use of WikiEducator, a platform and a community of educators engaged in creation of Open Educational Resources. The platform is powered by MediaWiki, and supported by the Commonwealth of Learning, Vancouver, Canada. The platform is growing fast, and recently, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has given a grant to train 2500 individuals in 52 Commonwealth countries to develop wiki skills and create a lesson each. In the process of promoting this goal, we are in the process of creating many resources, and recently experimented with a low cost approach to video lesson development using Kaltura Collaborative Video. The first lesson on how to create an account on Wikieducator is shown in the video below:
