Hi everyone The OER Foundation has set up a Mastodon instance <https://mastodon.oeru.org/> which is a federated and open source social networking alternative. (This short video <https://youtu.be/IPSbNdBmWKE> provides a good overview of what Mastodon is.)
At the OERu, we do not want any learner to be forced to use any proprietary hosted technologies in order to participate in our learning opportunities, and this is why we have set up an OERu instance <https://mastodon.oeru.org/> of the Mastodon software. It's primarily intended to support OERu learners rather than forcing learners to join, services like Twitter. Most conversations on our instance will be focused on OERu and OER related topics, however as open technology, WikiEducator users are free and most welcome to create accounts on our instance (thanks Steve Foerster for suggesting that I post this announcement on the WikiEd list). As a federated technology there are many different instances and communities you can join with the advantage of being able to interact with users on difference instances. If you need a little help in setting up an account and finding out how Mastodon works - you can consult the OERu support site <https://course.oeru.org/support/studying-courses/oeru-social-network/>. Happy tooting!
