Research and teaching at WeST is mainly publicly funded and it is important to us to use the tax payers’ money responsibly. Therefore, we aim for a free and public access to our material, e.g. in the form of our online course „Introduction to Web Science“, hosted at Wikiversity.
In order to have a more sustainable way to host these open courses, we applied for the fOERder award by the Medienanstalt Berlin-Brandenburg. Our goal: expand the didactical capabilities of the Wikiversity platform and by this make it better for any publicly accessible online courses.
