Education & Open Source? Perfect Match!

Hello to everyone in the ocPortal World. I have been around these quarters for a couple of years now, but just getting around to the introduction.

In a previous life I was IT & Computer Science Educator. Today I am trying my hand at Web Design & the empowerment of Web Based Solutions. It is a bit of a learning curve I must say, but little by little I move ahead each day.

I'm presently building a site for myself using pretty much out of the box theming until I grow a bit. While I do have the theoretical & experience designing & implementing performance support systems, I do not have the necessary skills to deal with the back-end coding. At the moment anyway :)

I have been a huge proponent of open source in education for quite some time now. While no longer working (getting paid) as an educator, my unofficial office is located in a corner of the local school library. I will eventually be providing instruction for students and staff on all aspects of computing, including ethics & social responsibilities, including cyber bullying. Can't get the education thing out of my system!

I'm hoping to make ocPortal my primary platform for instruction, so I hope everyone will tolerate my sometimes short sightedness & inexperience in the Forum Posts.

Welcome fellow Canadian, Ernie!

Yes, I remember seeing your name a few times.
I'd like to think that I'm retired when I say I'm involved with a Worker Retraining Program after a long career as an IT consultant.;) So maybe we have something in common about our love to educate and transmit knowledge to others.  I invite you to visit the tutoring site I maintain as an extension to my CIT courses. I am convinced that ocPortal is the perfect tool to create a virtual classroom.

If I can be of help, don't hesitate to let me know.
:)

ROTFLMAO, and welcome aboard, Ernie!

I think you already know that 'peeps' here are a friendly bunch, so kick off your shoes and weigh in!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

And here I was thinking that I was the only person here that new what performance support systems were, let alone worked in that field.
