I work in the [[Your Lab]] at XYZ University.  I learned about [[OpenWetWare]] from web search while looking for Tm methods to add to some DNA utilities I'm writing (pre-alpha at http://www.dnascript.freeiz.com/ ), and I've joined because I've supported the idea of online sharing since the 1990s, when I maintained an online resource with some of the protocols I used in Angela Tyner's lab.  I'm not entirely sure why OWW wasn't more successful, but it occupies a useful position between Wikipedia and MOOC content that is worth a closer look.  I am a former postdoc with experience in mammalian and insect systems, also very familiar with MediaWiki (including Lua/Scribunto if you are planning to update), and I'd welcome your suggestions for where you could use some help.  Otherwise, I see some areas in which your site could use work right away: for example, practically any entry under Materials.  More broadly, my feeling is that your site needs a way to bring its massive resources of archived coursework "to life", after the fashion of Udacity - in other words, to provide self-contained instruction units that can be taken at any time, permit students to check their progress via quizzes handled by a server, and ultimately finish the course feeling that they had measurably demonstrated a certain level of understanding..

Welcome

I'm interested in getting involved in OpenWetWare's community for online instruction and technique sharing.

Some ideas for getting involved with OWW:

  • I'd be up for some fun with Scribunto, an extension permitting a subset of Lua language scripting within the Wiki markup.
  • Work with one or more of the old archived courses to bring them "to life", after the fashion of Udacity, so that it is more feasible for students to go through the course, self-test their knowledge, and finish with the sense that they have measurably demonstrated a certain level of understanding.
