Want to code this summer and help OERu learners?
Posted by Wayne Mackintosh on 26 February 2014
Google Summer of Code is a competiion for students to work with open source institutions on summer coding projects. This year, the OER Foundation has been selected as one of the mentoring organisations. You can help improve the technology used by WikiEducator and the OERu to widen access to more affordable higher education for all.
This is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain real-world experience of working on major open projects with experienced mentors. Students are also paid a stipend of $5,500 for their effort.
If you're a lecturer at a university, polytechnic or community college, now is the time to raise awareness with your students as proposals must be submitted from 10 - 21 March 2014. You can download the poster to help distribute the word.
We are looking for awesome and original ideas from creative students to help realise our vision.
