What is trinket?
trinket is open teaching designed with you in mind. Create, prepare, teach and share your course on a powerful platform that generates simple, open class websites for you and your students.
Who is the Team?
We’re (currently) a team of six people dedicated to bringing open teaching to the world. If you’ve been following our progress you’ll know that we started out as Coursefork. Our vision of teacher-focused tools and open sharing of ideas and content for teaching remains the same. The new trinket brand and product are designed to reflect the values of our community: simplicity, power, and dedication to an educational mission.
What is Open Teaching?
Open teaching means teaching using open materials and providing open access to those materials on the internet. For instance, a professor might chose to use a Creative Commons licensed textbook and create a course website that their students can access. This allows other students to browse these materials and, perhaps more importantly, other instructors to browse and be inspired by those courses.
Why Open Teaching?
When teachers share their materials and approaches with each other, they’re able to improve faster and find others who teach the same things. This is already happening across all levels and disiplines as educators blog, tweet, and make videos about their teaching. trinket aims to bring the benefits of open teaching to everyone who teaches.
