At Boundless, we’re creating the next generation of educational content by directly incorporating contributions from our users — a passionate community of educators and subject-matter experts. To continue growing this vibrant community, I’m pleased to share that we’re bringing on one of community education’s biggest advocates as a new Boundless advisor: SJ Klein, a veteran Wikipedian.
SJ has been a contributor to Wikipedia since 2004, where he was elected as a Trustee of the Wikimedia Foundation in 2009. He’s also served as a Director of the Outreach for One Laptop per Child Foundation and an affiliate at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society. Needless to say, SJ is an expert in the community-sourced education — and we’re thrilled to have him on board!
SJ will help us grow and hone our Cloud Powered Community — so Boundless can do to textbooks what Wikipedia did for encyclopedias. In this community, subject matter experts from around the world contribute to Boundless by adding their domain expertise, improving the pedagogy, and starting meaningful academic discussions with their peers.
“Tapping the minds of the teaching community brings great power to educational content. I look forward to working with Boundless as its community grows, not just to create more freely-licensed material, but to provide greater access to it, and make it personalizable.”
– SJ Klein
Together, we can continue collaborating with this community to expand and improve our academic content library that reaches more than three million students and educators.
