BBC Learning Open Lab
BBC Backstage is proud to announce the new project aimed at people creating open learning resources. Its called Open Lab and is now launched for anyone to engage and participate in.
Unlike BBC Backstage, its much more accessible to the education and learning communities (such as teachers, learners, developers and anyone with an interest in creating 'open source' learning resources).
Rather that try and cover two quite different communities in the same way, it became clear that Backstage's output is best served to a community of developers, designers, hackers and geeks (and thats not going to change). And although you do get a lot of cross over, the educational and learning community have some different needs and so open lab was born.
Both share the same backstage values of openness and edging the BBC closer to its audience. So expect us and the openlab team to be working in tune on new projects in the near future...
