There’s excitement in the air in Leicester this morning as our EduWiki Conference gets under way. Academics from three continents are meeting with Wikipedians and opinion-formers to discuss the use of Wikimedia projects, such as Wikipedia, in higher education.

As well as universities, organisations represented include JISC and the Mozilla Foundation. Delegates will be examining the impact of open educational resources and looking at the lessons from previous case studies.

Follow the event on Twitter across the two days by using the hashtag #eduwiki and keep an eye on this blog for more updates.
