Dear list members,
With apologies for any cross-posting. I hope you are all having a nice
December and run up to Christmas. I'm writing to you to announce that the
Open Science MOOC is now live on the open source Eliademy platform
pilot module on Open Research Software and Open Source already has more
than 150 people enrolled and completing the tasks, and the feedback we are
getting is overwhelmingly positive
My small ask of you during this festive season is a little help with
getting out the word now, and helping us to break out of our little social
media bubble. Anything from emails, social media shares, or even mentioning
to a friend/colleague offline would be deeply appreciated. I think some of
you on this last have already provided signal boosts, which we are
exceptionally grateful for, especially as a volunteer-driven project.
Don't forget also that anyone can join our growing community on Slack (330
members; https://openmooc-ers-slackin.herokuapp.com/) or GitHub (84
members; https://open-science-mooc-invite.herokuapp.com/) if you haven't
Some key points to remeber are that our courses are completely free, they
are self-paced so can be completed in your own time, all content is freely
available and openly licensed for use either on or off the platform, and
offline in workshops etc. too. For researchers, a key message is that the
skills and knowledge learned in each module will be useful both inside and
outside of academia.
In the new year, we expect to be able to launch the second module on Open
Principles too, for which development is coming along nicely for here
<https://github.com/OpenScienceMOOC/Module-1-Open-Principles>. Please do
get in touch if you would like to learn anything more about any of this.
Thank you all too for your ongoing support. We are thankful to be part of
such a great network of people and organisations, and appreciate any
assistance you might be able to lend us as we take off.
A final reminder to please make sure to take some real holiday time this
Christmas season. I know you all work really hard, but taking some time for
yourselves will help you to re-energise your creativity and productivity to
take on 2019!
