WikiEducator remix experiments

Icon objectives.jpg
The untapped potential of OER lies in the remix. The purpose of this page is to:
  • Demonstrate a proof-of-concept of simple but effective remix scenarios where WikiEducator content is reused in different delivery technologies.
  • Identify potential use case scenarios.
  • Collect feedback from educators to help develop the requirements for a user-friendly interface on WikiEducator to generate the required HTML text for embedding OER sourced from WikiEducator in different delivery technologies.

How this works

This proof of concept utilises the HTML <iframe> tag to embed OER content from WikiEducator into any website, learning management system or blog which supports the <iframe> tag. The WikiEducator server uses customised Javascript to remove the redundant Mediawiki navigation elements which are not required on the target website. (In this proof of concept, users may experience a momentary flash of the WikiEducator navigation elements before they are removed for display on the target website.


Copy and paste the following HTML syntax to embed a WikiEducator page on your target website by replacing the full url for the WikiEducator source page you want to reuse:

<iframe frameborder="1" height="300" src="http://wikieducator.org/Learning4Content/Workshops/eL4C41/Day_1" width="100%"><p> Your browser does not support iframes.</p> </iframe>
