Reclaim Learning: A Domain of One’s Own
This presentation will examine a decade worth of experimentation and development at the University of Mary Washington that has resulted in a series of innovative projects such as UMW Blogs (http://umwblogs.org), ds106 (http://ds106.us), and Domain of One’s Own (http://umwdomains.com)—not to mention its recent spin-off Reclaim Hosting (http://reclaimhosting.com). What all these projects have in common is they operate from a shared ethos of supporting an open environment for teaching and learning online by helping faculty and students alike exert control over the digital spaces they learn, teach, and ultimately live in.
