Open EdTech has revised its mission and redefined its website. Rather than develop open ed tech products, it will now focus on defining open ed tech, supporting a membership around the concept, and certifying openm ed tech products. Two products are (not surprisingly currently certified): Moodle, and Big Blue Button. Certification is based on five major criteria: open source development, sustainable stable core team, listening to educators, support for community developers, and support for open ed tech standards. It also has merch. I admit I'm disappointed it has stepped back from the idea of developing something like a personal learning environment. I know it's a hard thing to do. I'd be disappointed if Apple or Microsoft were the only ones willing to do it.
