At the start of this semester, the OpenLab hit a new milestone, reaching 25,000 members (with hundreds more joining since then)! Not too shabby! We,the OpenLab Team, believe this is a moment worth celebrating, and are excited for the opportunity to highlight your accomplishments over the past seven years.
Since the OpenLab was launched in Fall 2011, OpenLab members have:
- Created (and taught!) approximately 2,067 courses;
- Built (no, curated!) approximately 6,020 e-Portfolios;
- Developed (and grown!) approximately 114 clubs, both for faculty/ staff and students;
- Started (and cultivated!) approximately 2,406 projects;
It’s been quite a ride. Congratulations all!
We would like to thank the City Tech community for your ongoing support of and participation in the OpenLab. It’s called a “lab,” because it’s designed to be a space where faculty, students, staff, and alumni can experiment, collaborate, share, and innovate. The OpenLab is a perpetual work in progress and you all have built the content that improves, challenges and grows City Tech’s unique, open-source digital platform. Thank you!
*Stay tuned for a forthcoming retrospective on the OpenLab: a series of posts this semester, exploring in detail how the OpenLab as grown and changed since its launch, as well as various milestones along the way.
