During the spring, I worked with Janet Hopkins (an MEd student) on a directed study examining Wikiversity, a sister project of Wikipedia. Initially in this study, Janet took a free, open, online course offered through Wikiversity, “Composing Free and Open Online Educational Resources.”
While completing the 12-week course, Janet kept field notes on her blog. Janet and I made use of these notes in putting together a paper presenting an ethnographic study of the community and culture of Wikiversity. It appears in the October 2008 edition of First Monday.
