    • Page | 35 http://chemwiki.ucdavis.edu/ launched in 2008 on a shoestring budget, now nets over 2 million visitors a month, making it the most visited domain among the university's websites. ChemWiki recently received its first major funding — a grant of $250,000 from the National Science Foundation Delmar Larsen now offers extra credit to students who submit entries, occasionally holding pizza parties to bring in volunteers to write or review pages. He assigns a rating system to new articles based on the author's expertise and experience, with articles moving up as they are edited and vetted.

    • Page | 36 Beyond Free Benefit #4 Collegial collaboration
    • Page | 37 “We are a group of two dozen mathematicians who wrote a 600 page book in less than half a year. This is quite amazing, since mathematicians do not normally work together in large groups. “ “..the spirit of collaboration that pervaded our group at the Institute for Advanced Study was truly amazing. We did not fragment. We talked, shared ideas, explained things to each other, and completely forgot who did what. If we can get mathematicians to share half-baked ideas, not to worry who contributed what to a paper, or even who the authors are, then we will reach a new and unimagined level of productivity. Progress is made by those who dear (sic) the break rules.” Andrej Bauer, University of Ljubljana Source: The HoTT book, Mathematics and Computation http://math.andrej.com/2013/06/20/the-hott-book/ The HoTT book
    • Page | 38 Source: Open Textbook Publishing, Joe Moxley, World.edu http://world.edu/open-textbook-publishing/ “Rather than working as employees on by-the-piece rates for global companies like Pearson, faculty members can assume the role of publishers. Using free content-management systems like Joomla, Drupal, or WordPress in conjunction with inexpensive web hosting packages, we can build communities around our educational materials.” “We need to realize our power as authors and publishers. Working collaboratively, we can create dynamic teaching and learning environments.” Joe Moxley, University of South Florida, http://writingcommons.org/
