Join the Conversation—Educonnection.org and OSUM
By rebeccalui on Oct 29, 2008
The buzz at EDUCAUSE today was around Sun’s launch of two new social networks: Educonnection.org and OSUM (Open Source University Meetup). Both are designed to build strong communities that empower participants from the global education sector.
Educonnection.org offers an online platform for academia around the globe to exchange information and share best practices. Here is an interview with Joe Hartley, vice president of global government, education and healthcare, on Educonnection.org.
Sun's OSUM is an open social network created for students interested in sharing, using and learning about open source developer tools and platforms. In the three weeks since its introduction, OSUM has already attracted over 10,000 student members from 50 countries, with more than 500 university clubs created! Here is an interview with Gary Serda on OSUM.
