At the beginning of November Reclaim Hosting ran a focused two-day workshop for folks at very schools administering Domain of One’s Own at their schools. The idea was to do a deep-dive into the various systems we integrate that make-up Domain of One’s Own so that folks don’t feel like it’s a black box they can’t touch. This helps us support participating schools, while also helping the schools build capacity locally with the technology. What’s more, we hoped bringing people together from six different institutions might provide an opportunity for sharing and cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches for domains. It seems to have worked quite well given the feedback we got from the first particpants, so we are announcing another workshop for the Spring.Lauren put together a snazzy new site with all the details, but I am including a few quick facts below:
- It’s happening on March 15th and 16th, 2018
- It will take place at Reclaim’s Headquarters in Fredericksburg, VA
- It’s first come, first serve, and we only have 10 spots
- It’s $900 per participant
If you want more details about what to expect, Lauren’s post about the our first workshop provides an excellent overview. What’s more, if this is not possible given time, financial, or other restraints, we have made all of our documentation for administering Domains openly available, as well as sharing the videos from the various sessions we conducted earlier this month (here is one on DNS and another on Supporting Domain of One’s Own). If you’re interested in working directly with the entire Reclaim staff this Spring, register here, you may even get a sneak peak of ReclaimVideo before its grand opening.
