Hacking Education

A session at MountainWest RubyConf 2012

Friday 16th March, 2012

1:00pm to 1:30pm (MST)

Free online educational resources like Kahn Academy, the Stanford online CS classes, and the MITx program have gotten a lot of attention lately, even outside the education technology nerd circles. These programs are changing how educational content is created and consumed online. It's a great time to catch this wave and create your own educational tools, games, and content; regardless of the scale or whether it's free for everyone, meant for specific K-12/Higher Ed curriculum, or for corporate training.

This talk will show you how to use current standards and protocols in your Ruby applications that make them available as educational resources. You'll see how your apps would be used in the context of a traditional K-12 or college course, and I will demo some cool implementations like interacting with Khan Academy.
