Prompt 2: Use your camera or audio recording device to show the experience of travel to Vancouver

What is your mode of travel to the Open Education conference next week? What does it mean to do this? What do you travel? What are your essentials

This is our second daily prompt for attendees to share things that represent their Open Education 2012 experience. This will be available on a special little device we call the OpenEd Treasure Box – a local sharing environment that will be on premises next week in Vancouver.

The things you ask to share- any file you can upload from your computer- are the stuff that you do NOT put out into public social media. Why? because this is an experiment in local shared media that will have no context, yet is unique, like from a time capsule.

The goal is to explore a new way of capturing the conference experience in media.

If you missed yesterday’s prompt,  no worries- you can do these in whatever order works for you- it was

Each day’s prompt includes a creative challenge for you to capture in photo, graphic. video, audio form, heck even text is ok. How you interpret it is wide open.

How to Share:

At the conference you will be able to upload directly to the Treasure Box through its local wireless network. We’ll provide those instructions starting Tuesday. But for now, we have set up a way for you to send media to our dropbox. The key thing is to give your files a descriptive (or mysterious) name before you upload them- that is the only information you can share about the contents.

Upload as many things as you like to – use the password storybox. Or you can email attachments to the dropbox via

 storybox (UNDERSCORE) tu8r (AT) sendtodropbox DOT com

Learn more about this PirateBox technology (open source) or plan to visit the Unconference sessions in C215 on Tuesday at  11-11:45am or Thursday at 1:30-2:15pm Or track down Alan Levine (@cogdog) at the conference.

Not So Small Print

Because of the nature of this anonymous technology, there is no way to provide credit for media shared, we are asking for the most free of licenses- that you release media into the public domain under CC0


To the extent possible under law, Open Education 2012 Conference has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to Open Education 2012 Treasure Box. This work is published from: Canada.

If you don’t like these ridiculous conditions, then please disconnect and have a nice day. We admit by asking you to share in anonymity, we won’t be able to give you credit… but how more open can you get?
