LibreTexts OpenEd Week


Delmar Larsen <dlarsen@...>
 

Dear LibreTexts Users, Developers, Constructors and Aficionados:

Sorry for any cross-forum announcements resulting in multiple emails. I am excited to share with you that the LibreTexts project will be sharing seven online presentations/workshops as part of the Open Ed week. The schedule can be found below. Feel free to jump in as you see fit and get a topical overview of the activities. The more numerous and more active the attendees are, the more useful the presentations will be. Feel free to come with questions, concerns and tokens of affection for the presenters.

We also intend to record the presentations for future review, so even if you cannot attend you can still watch the presentations at your leisure.

Regards,

Delmar
