SitRep: Verifying your progress
Agent, we require a SitRep (situation report). How is your mission going?
In this session we will share what we have learned so far about hosting a Mastodon server and also hear from you about your experiences.
Why are we doing this?
ALT and Reclaim EdTech are partnering to offer our communities the opportunity to explore Mastodon starting in January 2023. The server we set up will act as a platform for our communities to explore and get to know Mastodon. The server will be temporary, but depending on what we learn along the way, we will decide how to proceed. So, whether you are completely new to the fediverse, or looking for other edtech folk to connect with, join us to explore and learn together.
ALT and Reclaim EdTech are already active on Mastodon, and many in our communities are, too. We are looking to learn more about how we can support folk in this space, how community servers might function, how they could be moderated and what the costs involved might be, too.
This is an opportunity to learn more about being active on Mastodon as well as learning about setting up, hosting and moderating servers for communities like ours and complement what we can learn from already established communities and servers with hands-on experience.
