Associate VP for Community Source Initiatives & Dean of IT
Community Source has been described as “institutional investments for institutional outcomes” based on open source principles. This session examines how the Community Source model used by Sakai, OSPI, Kuali, and others is similar to and different from other collaborative models. The session will examine models of shared investment, rapid distributed development, governance, leveraged support, and structures for post-grant sustainability. Audience interaction will address the challenges of the Community Source model for the longer term and its applicability to new projects.
