I’m starting up a federated wiki on the “Hidden History of Online Learning” to attempt to demonstrate to what the experience is like.
If any readers of his blog would like to participate, I’m willing to set up a federated wiki for you on my S3 instance. I’ve already set sites up for Audrey Watters and Jim Groom.
The site URL will look like audrey.hapgood.net:3000 where “audrey” is your name. Leave a comment below if you would like to participate, indicating your preferred URL.
You will be obligated to write a 1 to 2 paragraph article on the wiki, or to substantially revise another 1 to 2 paragraph article on the wiki. That’s it. Ten minutes work.

Oops, walked away from this yesterday before submitting my info.
khomotso.hapgood.net would be dandy.
Please set up a site for me. Thanks.
Absolutely. Coming up!
I’ll give it a go
Raised hand. I’m being the curve in your fed wiki work. Jim’s class had be pulling back to the edtech scene when I started at Maricopa; there’s a State of Ed tech report that came out when I started– http://mcli.cogdogblog.com/river that references an mid 1980s report on instructional tech. From what I was told, they started putting their admin systems into computer system in the 1970s. Some of those folks are still around, might be fun to interview them-
cogdog is the name
I’ll bite. I fear I’m new enough to the backroom of elearning that my contributions will be limited, but I’ll give it a shot.
Jason, here you go http://jason.hhol.hapgood.net:3000/view/welcome-visitors/view/the-hidden-history-of-online-learning
I’ll join in, I’m kind of an amateur at the history of computing but also a big fan too. Like the whole group at Illinois that worked on PLATO and what follow-on effects that had. Sign me up.
Awesome, here you go: http://eric.hhol.hapgood.net:3000/view/welcome-visitors/view/the-hidden-history-of-online-learning Let me know if you want additional info!
Thanks Mike, it’s working already as I type this I just got some text entered into the placeholder for PLATO. This is going to be fun and it’s going to be GOOD.
Awesome. The picture drop is a bit wonky in this version. If you link to pictures elsewhere I’ll come by and use the slightly touchy process to get them properly uploaded to the site. Looking forward to this!
Sounds good, I was able to find the tutorial on the mark-up, knowing each web app has slightly different syntax. Looks like good ol’ HTML works as well as the square brackets. I did it both ways and I’ll start using  square brackets for links.
Great website! I am loving it!! Will be back later to read some more. I am taking your feeds also fbdbdkcbedfa
Mike, really like you posts about SFW. I share your excitement and anticipation! Have you got or come across an “idiots guide” to install SFW on an Amazon S3 account… To give you an indication of my “idiocy” until I read this post, I had not heard of Amazon S3… 😉
