Cross-Campus Community-Building & Resource-Sharing: Creating the CUNY Academic Technology Commons (Presentation at the Sloan-C International Symposium on Emerging Technology Applications in Online Learning)

George Otte, The City University of New York
Abstract: Once a matter of static repositories and incremental communication, resource-sharing can now be about social networks, working groups, collaborative authoring -- all in a unified open-source system that is itself a mash-up of applications and utilities. CUNY seized this possibility in creating its cross-campus resource site for academic technology.
