Recently I tweeted the addition of document versioning for the Learn2 with Git Sync skeleton package (which leverages Grav’s Multi-language feature), and I thought I would share it here:
Inspired by an inquiry by @dgibbons and made possible by the amazing work of @rhuk, the latest @getgrav Learn2 with Git Sync skeleton package beta (which requires Grav 1.6) now supports document versioning🎉 pic.twitter.com/HgnmawjKGa— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) March 4, 2019
With Grav 1.6 getting closer and closer to release, it seems like the good time to release a set of Beta skeleton packages for Open Course Hub and Open Publishing Space with enhanced support of the new Presentation Plugin to explore and test, so let’s get to it!

Recently I tweeted some details about the new Presentation Plugin by Ole Vik for the Grav CMS, and I thought I would share them here:Continue Reading
Recently I tweeted some recent improvements to Sections-type pages, designed to support a large amount of Markdown-based content within a Grav site, and I thought I would share them here:
One of the most popular aspects of the @getgrav Open Publishing Space and Open Course Hub is the 'Sections' type page, where a large amount of content is accessible via sidebar links and next/prev section buttons pic.twitter.com/eCOXuoPxom— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) February 4, 2019
Recently I tweeted some of my thoughts about Markdown, open content, and the release of the new Grav Presentation Plug, and I thought I would share them here:
While not a 'silver bullet' for all open content/#OER scenarios, in my experience Markdown supports truly open (think of the 5Rs) and collaborative materials (when used with Git-based Web services like GitLab/GitHub/etc.) while also enabling a more streamlined workflow.

Throwing caution to the wind I’ve decided to submit two proposals for the Cascadia Open Education Summit in Vancouver, B.C. on April 17 and 18, with both involving the use of Markdown, Git and the file-based Grav CMS for creating and delivering open educational resources (OER).
UPDATE: While these proposals were not accepted this year I would be more than happy to meet with any interested educators about the above topics while they are in Vancouver April 17th and 18th.Continue Reading
It’s been a pretty busy year for my Grav-based open education projects - here are the highlights:
Based on discussions with two educators (thanks Colin and Brian), the ability for multiple courses to be included within a single Grav Open Course Hub is now supported!

Recently I’ve been working on trying to visualize my approach for a future-friendly open content system, including how my Grav projects support that system, and I thought I would share them here:
1st attempt to visually represent the future-friendly (i.e. content independent of platform) open content system I've assembled and used for the past several years. #OER is only one aspect - the other aspects are efficient workflows, flexible tool choice, and overall experience🚀 pic.twitter.com/OefBQq26OB— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) November 27, 2018
