Grasple is a social enterprise. Our mission is to make knowledge openly accessible to everyone. So we help educators create, edit, and share open Math and Statistics exercises with everyone around the world through our user-friendly practice and testing platform.
All exercises are creative-commons licensed and curated by our team and community of educators. For this we were awarded the 2019 Award for Excellence.
During OEG 2020 we are hosting two activities:
- Action Lab on open format for interactive exercises
- Presentation: Stories from the Field: How educators from different institutions collaboratively create open resources
Open means sharing across platforms and institutions
Lowering the barriers for exchanging and using open educational resources created in different applications is essential for Open Education.
During OEG 2020 we are hosting an Action Lab which redraws attention to this interoperability challenge. We seek to collaborate, explore, and draft a new or extended open format for interoperability of digital, interactive exercises.
Join our Action Lab if you are well-versed in the technical implementation of OER and want to contribute your expertise to make sure that all the energy that is put into OER will have a lasting impact. The overall goal is that in thirty years, we can still build on the work of the wonderful educators that are investing their time, sweat and love into creating open resources that will help students learn!
Participants will leave this session with:
- an updated and enriched understanding of current initiatives related to open standards and interoperability.
- a solid overview of the benefits and challenges/pain points related to open formats in general and QTI in particular.
- satisfaction, for having contributed to a collaborative design of a new/updated open standard for interactive math exercises.
- a way to stay engaged and/or contribute on further developments for open standard for interactive math exercises
