I don't think this will really save you any money, but having the knowledge to set up and secure your own cloud file sync may serve you well in the future. The setup is basic, using an Ubuntu server and NextCloud, but it includes authentication and SSH enmcryption, and of course you can run it in the cloud in a service like Digital Ocean. Where the real power comes in is when you can (in future projects) take stuff like this and integrate it with your own applications. But that's a separate post.
Presentation from OERE20 (video). "How do we care for the Web and nurture and protect it while at the same time explore it from within higher ed, and free it from the myths that still hold it back? I came to believe that some analysis instruments like the ideas from platform nihilism (Lovink 2019) or hacker pedagogy may be particularly useful in practice."
Feel like playing this weekend? Don't just want to play canned video games? Then this page is for you - "tiny/weirdo game engines... indie/open source bigger game engines... fantasy consoles... " and much much more. Have fun.
We're beginning to see what online learning looks like if we're actually serious about doing online learning. "Starting on 20 April, videos, quizzes, podcasts and articles will appear on BBC Bitesize Daily via the BBC iPlayer, red button, BBC Four and BBC Sounds. Children's lessons will feature presenters including Oti Mabuse, Katie Thistleton and Karim Zeroual.... The initiative will include 14 weeks of core subject learning to offer 'rhythm and routine' for pupils 'whatever your child's age'."
This is the sort of application you could lose a couple hours with, playing around and trying to figure out what it does and how it works. The idea is that it automates the process of creating accessible, adaptive color systems using contrast-ratio based generated colors (much more on this here). As anyone with limited vision will tell you, your colour schemes are important, as they make the difference between an application or website that is easy to read and one that is a meaningless blur. The tool is open source, and you can modify it yourself, but even better, it allows you to share schemas you've developed as a simple standardized URL.
