The Jetpack for Learning Design Challenge enters phase II. We were excited to receive 36 amazing submissions from teams around the world and accepted 26 into the next stage. Ideas that we liked ranged from annotating the Web with other students, building assessment into the browsing experience, or linking the browser to a backend learning management system.
The selected teams are eligible to participate in a set of online seminars covering Jetpack development and user interface design. They will also get support and mentorship from the Mozilla community to help them turn their ideas into Jetpack prototypes. At the end of phase II up to 10 participants will be invited to a hands-on Design Camp at SXSW Interactive 2010.
Have a look at the phase 2 projects:
The Jetpack for Learning Design Challenge invites software developers, designers, and educators to help turn the open Web into a rich learning environment. It is sponsored by the Mozilla Foundation with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
