This session will be a walk-through on what is OpenScholar and how it is used. I will also show how the University of California, Merced is using it to provision Graduate Students either OpenScholar sites or a space where they can host their own sites.
From the OpenScholar project page:
OpenScholar represents a paradigm shift in how the personal academic and research web sites are created and maintained. Built on the open-source framework Drupal, OpenScholar makes it possible to create academic web sites in a matter of seconds. Each web site comes with a suite of powerful tools from which users can facilitate the creation, distribution, and preservation of knowledge faster and more efficiently than ever before.
OpenScholar allows users to create genuine, feature-rich web sites on the fly in seconds and is designed to host an unlimited number of web sites on a single installation.
