What is the UVic Fieldschool project?
The UVic Fieldschools Project is an online collaborative workspace that allows teachers and students to share ideas, discussions, documents and blog posts from anywhere on the Internet. This project is based on the popular Open Atrium framework and has been customized for the University of Victoria's Fieldschool requirements. Included in these customizations is the development of public-facing blog pages that allows students to post blog posts to the public side of the website.
