Announcement: Open Source Day is back!! Please visit www.oscelot.org for details.

OSCELOT community,

As a volunteer-led organization, OSCELOT has been in existence for more than eight years. In "computer years" that makes our organization approximately 173 years old. In that time, even as standards, LMS environments, and technology has evolved; OSCELOT has stayed pretty constant. We're proud of our community and the work that you do to improve teaching & learning around the world. Now it's time for us to update the resources we're providing and see what we can do to keep moving forward.

We're going to be offering some new services (without charge), and turning off some things we haven't been able to devote enough time to. Here's the plan so far:

  • Repositories:
  • It's time to move on from our old Gforge instance.
  • The Gforge environment you have reached is available for reference only and to enable migration to https://github.com/oscelot/
  • This is not a production environment and should never be expected to be available.
  • We will maintain this archival copy until approximately July.
  • We've created a non-profit organization for OSCELOT on GitHub.
  • Please migrate your own projects from Gforge to the GitHub organization
  • Correspondence:
  • Through the growth of LTI and the expansion of more LMS over the years, our community has expanded and is no longer concentrated in a single platform. Because of this, we've created a new list via Google Groups for developers to collaborate. Google Groups allows us to provide a general list, along with specific categories for Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, or other categories we may want in the future. During the awkward transition period, I expect that there will be a lot of cross-posting.
  • The current bb-open_src@lists.vcu.edu is generously hosted by VCU and I would expect that it's not going anywhere if you want to keep using it.
  • Slack is a great tool, powered by a great organization, so we're pleased to start offering a Slack channel to augment the listserve
  • Of course, the general rule is to be supportive of & helpful to each other
  • Web presence
  • Our current website at http://www.oscelot.org is creaky old mess—we'll be cleaning & updating it soon. If you live and breathe beautiful sites and want to volunteer to help, we'd love to hear from you.
  • We have the obligatory social presences too:

We're excited for the refresh and for you to join us for the next 173 computer years!
