Our goal is to test this system in a real educational environment and evaluate how the system can support participants to collaborate and create open educational resources. The use case relates to an ongoing event that happens in a period of time, such as a lecture given by a professor or a video presentation. A number of participants can express their thoughts as the time-based session goes on. The collaboration repository is kept in a wiki page and the Expression Widgets JetPack application is a mediator that supports the user to take content from the Web and adapt as content that is shared in the repository. If you have suggestions or if you are willing to test this at your location please keep in contact - mgalli at mgalli dot com.
