Recently I’ve been working on trying to visualize my approach for a future-friendly open content system, including how my Grav projects support that system, and I thought I would share them here:
1st attempt to visually represent the future-friendly (i.e. content independent of platform) open content system I've assembled and used for the past several years. #OER is only one aspect - the other aspects are efficient workflows, flexible tool choice, and overall experience🚀 pic.twitter.com/OefBQq26OB— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) November 27, 2018
I recently tweeted some reasons for using the Grav Open Educational Resources (OER) Content Space, and I thought I would share them here:
With the recent addition of the GitSync and Add Page by Form plugins along with the arrival of the Gantry 5 Framework to the Grav universe, 2017 holds even greater promise for (open) educators to benefit from Grav. With these new elements, not only will the setup of the multi-device friendly and collaborative Grav Course Hub be easier and quicker, but a whole new range of applications with Grav opens up in relation to open blogging and online OER authoring/sharing. Let’s start with the Grav Course Hub!
Once you start using Grav you will also (more than likely) start using Markdown more than you used to. Wouldn’t it be great to apply your new Markdown skills to other aspects of your work? Well, recently I was introduced to the Markdown-based slides Web app swipe.to (thank you Bryan!) and I’ve really enjoyed using it so far.
