Domain of One's Own LMS

  • Time
  • Short description of the session:
    • The coronavirus pandemic has rapidly forced educators to flee online where there is a wealth of predatory, amoral, and questionable platforms for managing online pedagogy. Starting closer to first principles, how might we design and build an LMS (Learning Management System) based on IndieWeb Principles or using the related ideas behind A Domain of One's Own where the teacher and students own their own content, learning content, and personal learning network. Can we dovetails ideas and principles from the Open Educational Resources (OER) space with this at the same time?

Dates

Chris Aldrich given that the Saturday 10am slot did so well for other the first time, perhaps we keep that and do a date in August or September? Add your preference and we'll try to pick a slot on/around July 13th to give people time to plan.

Saturday at 10am sounds like a good idea. I noted the three dates I prefer most, but my schedule's very flexible – hibs

Prior Hold Overs

The sessions below are proposals from IndieWebCamp West 2020 which either didn't have facilitators present (generally due to timezone issues) or didn't fit into that schedule. They are archived here for potential future camps or pop-up sessions. We've left the original facilitators, but please feel free to add your name as a pop-up organizer or make notes below each about your specific interest and potential scheduling dates.


Offline sites

  • Peter Molnar (facilitator)
  • discusion about what offline is, how websites could utilize it, and how we could benefit from it
   ** most static sites could be built to be filesystem/offline available - relative urls, including filenames - is it a good idea? 
   ** Ties in a littlebit with archiving and longevity topic (see Here Today, Gone Tomorrow above)
   ** should we all have simple service workers to make our site available offline? If yes, should it preload the whole site? 
  • #offlineweb
  • +1 Tantek Çelik - I have some experience here (with offline sites) and would like to understand what to do next


JSON-LD to mf2

  • Peter Molnar (facilitator)
  • as monsterous as it sounds, many modern tools are heavily JSON-LD oriented. Would a drop-in JS solution, that turns certain JSON-LD structures into mf/mf2 be useful?
    • Greg McVerry JSON-LD gigantic in the edtech world, moving back and forth woruld open up possibilities
  • #jsonldisamonster
  • +1 Ryan Barrett
  • 0 David Shanske - neutral as I turn JSON-LD into MF2 (why did you do that to yourself? :) ) To read sites that don't have MF2

Motivation: why have a homepage?

  1. emotionalcore

(this could be combined with Scott Gruber session...Why have your own web page through lens of quickly building webpage on why having a homepage is important

    • this is ~100% the design choice of almost 82% of the people I onboard
      • what decision choice you mean here?
  • +1 Tantek Çelik

My Uncomplicated IndieWeb WordPress Setup

  • Joseph Dickson (facilitator)
  • How I configured my WordPress site with IndieWeb Plugins at www.LinuxBookPro.com
  • IndieWeb Plugins https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/indieweb/
  • (Note to Organizer: Lowest Possible Priority - I expect this would last no more than 15 minutes, I haven't prepared.)
  • {gwg} wants to see this, as curious. Will struggle to keep comments to minimum.

Alternate presentations for Webmentions in comments sections

+1 fluffy +1 David Shanske - Want to support this in WP +1 David Bryant -- I can recap my partial implementation on top of Eleventy and point to additional Eleventy + Webmention resources +1 gRegor Morrill +1 Tantek Çelik -- I like the Arthur C. Clarke definition, and yes Webmention is sufficiently advanced :)

Storage & Presentation for Reply Contexts & Link Previews

  • Facilitator Welcome...
  • +1 David Shanske Looking to discuss again how you store and display previews to other URLs for reply-contexts and more.
  • +1 Tantek Çelik personally still exploring storage for reply-contexts and would like to build on related discussions from IWS 2019

Build a web page with HTML and CSS

  • Scott Gruber (facilitator)
  • +1 Greg McVerry
  • A hands on workshop or demo for beginners to feel HTML Energy. We will introduce HTML5 header, nav, main, aside and footer elements to build and style a page with CSS Grid, Flexbox and MultiColumn layout
  • Tantek Çelik - maybe a good "Create Day" session for Sunday?

Badges and Gamification

Rainbow Bridge to The Future

  • Ki Xia (facilitator)
  • How do we use our skills as people who "took the red pill" to connect existing mainstream communities online, and provide support to those exiting the major platforms?

^Totally open to other wording, as it's 4 hours past my bedtime. :'( [I suggest "indieweb adoptees" / "participants" / "practicioners" instead of "people who took the red pill" - Maxwell Joslyn]

  • Topics could include:
    • AWS and Amazon's announcement of nocode
    • Spotify's landgrab
    • user-friendly middle ground apps, like Micro.blog (does Ghost qualify?)
    • building micro-communities for non-coders
    • extra support for POC, LGB..., neurodiverse, and differently-abled

[this sounds very similar to the Cooking for Others stuff above; maybe merge the two sessions? -- Ana Ulin ]

Ethics

  • (too late to think of catchy title, maybe tomorrow!)
  • Ki Xia (facilitator)
  • Tracking. Url shorteners. Hit counters. Affiliate income. Accepting fiat money. Perpetuating myths v. surviving with kids.

^Totally open to other wording, as it's 4 hours past my bedtime. :'(

  • Topics could include:
    • Aaron Parecki's mention tonight of how he gives things for free (where will that lead? how does that work for him?)
    • tbc

Maxwell Joslyn I don't know what you mean by "perpetuating myths vs surviving with kids", but I would like to know. Also would like to know how fiat money plays into your ideas here. Speaking of money, here are ideas for this session - website to website economy (indie payments anyone?); adding monetization to one's website (and the ethics thereof).


State of the Music Industry

  • Ki Xia (facilitator)
  • Wtf is happening.

^Totally open to other wording, as it's 4 hours past my bedtime. :'(

  • Topics could include:
    • Derek Sivers' new book on music (he just released yesterday IN HTML!!!)
    • can we help birth a new music industry outside of ASCAP/BMI?
    • building micro-communities
    • See Also

https://indieweb.org/musician Maxwell Joslyn +1 i am mildly interested, as a total outsider to music industry +1 to this Own Your Music Greg McVerry

    • Quit Spotify and buy an album a month...Feed artists

+1 fluffy (also bandcamp is the best way to support artists) +1 Beto Dealmeida (+1 on bandcamp) +1 gRegor Morrill (outsider but also interested)

Creating a Fund for Next Gen

  • Ki Xia (facilitator)
  • My 15 year old, who can't drive or do anything at the moment, learned nocode in 1 day because I offered him $15 to make me a job posting board. To solve my problem of posting multiple POC/women in tech gigs, in 1 place across different communities. The next day, he published what he called a "text game" on Itchio, put it up for sale, and then we discovered he had created a MUD. All with no direct adult assistance. What would it take to foster this for more kids, when their whole world is burning?
  • Kai your son is welcome to join us https://tech-4-teens.club starts next week. Here is registration: https://www.cfalct.org/tech4teens
    • My 9 year old 7 year old want to come to this session

^Totally open to other wording, as it's 4 hours past my bedtime. :'(

  • Topics could include:
    • Raspberry Pi and that whole world (that is beyond me)
    • Homebrew Server Club, with solar power
    • computer and server building as environmental activism
    • teaching of digital minimalism and responsibility of digital waste/bloat

Maxwell Joslyn +1. "Ways to foster self-directed learning". Though, it might be that one good way is to leave the kid alone (within reason) and let them noodle around until they figure it out, as your son did with making a MUD. Another direction could be a tie-in to homeschooling. hey Greg McVerry if you're reading this - you are officially pinged in your capacity as a professor of education :^) +1 Peter Molnar I've veen self-hosting for a long while (including email)
