Toolkit Proposals

  • WikiWYSIWYG
    • An Open Learning mechanism for the Open Web
    • Interactive description of and toolkit for the Open Web
    • Arcane concepts made easy


Past Courses

  • Mashing Up the Open Web.
    • An introduction to open web standards. HTML, CSS, JavaScript (and more?) through project based learning. This course is not for complete novices, some web experience is required. Participants will work on a self defined project that leverages open datasets and web services to create a mashup that is useful to their target audience.
