{{#titlehere:}} Please note that the present pages on the ICTP workshop were obtained from a mediawiki used during the workshop. There may be a number of links that go to missing pages, and other inconsistencies. Much of it is also very informal, and should be seen as workshop notes! Participants were split into groups, and asked to take 10 minutes to look at the following media related projects:

  1. http://ocw.mit.edu
  2. http://webcast.berkeley.edu/
  3. http://www.ocwconsortium.org/
  4. http://openlearn.open.ac.uk/
  5. http://creativecommons.org/
  6. http://moodle.org/
  7. http://www.bwmo.net/
  8. http://www.aptivate.org/webguidelines, http://www.aptivate.org/Projects.PDFDownloadingGuidelines.html
  9. http://nrich.maths.org/public/
  10. http://wikipedia.org/
  11. http://www.youtube.com/

Through the mediawiki comments plugin, a prepesentative from each group then left a comment. To illustrate this, the comments are here:
