You can see the main page for the course–and most of the content–here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Education/EduCourse/Outline.   It was organized by Philipp Schmidt, a South African academic who’s worked on collaboration in a variety of contexts.  (We met at WikiSym last year.)

Here’s Philipp’s deck of slides from the opening seminar; as you’ll see, the course will take up a fascinating array of topics.
