Adjusted number of cases[edit]

I would like to share an idea to have a more precise understanding of the number of cases of COVID-19. Please, see it at COVID-19/Julian_Mendez. --Julian (discusscontribs) 14:51, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for sharing this. Joint effort to maintain the learning resource is highly appreciated. I guess you want to support the mathematical forcast of the development. Please see COVID-19/Mathematical Modelling if you want add you support there. Thank you for the support to update the learning resource! Would you like to take responsibility for the specific subtopic or could you explain how you would like to join a collaborative effort! Thank you. --Bert Niehaus (discusscontribs) 12:58, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Import Coronavirus Tech Handbook?[edit]

Is it possible to take some CC-BY-SA 4.0 content from the Coronavirus Tech Coronavirus Tech Handboook and incorporate into here? --Charles Jeffrey Danoff (discusscontribs) 03:46, 2 April 2020 (UTC)

@Charles Jeffrey Danoff: You can use Tech Handbook due to CC-BY-SA 4.0 to transform that into a learning resource. Keep in mind that Wikiversity is learning resource (capacity building) and learners should be enabled to understand the technical requirements and constraints during the Corona virus pandemics. These technical requirements and constraints come up e.g. because people cannot meet physically face-to-face and must use videoconferencing, share files, share screens, exchange data peer-to-peer, then learning objective is to understand these technical requirements and even setting up an own video conferencing server (Open Source Jitsi or Big Blue Button) to understand principle in Local Area Network, bandwidth requirements for DSL upstream, security aspects, ... Open Source and Open Content are crucial for the approach so that learners can perform the learning task without the requirement to buy a product or service. --Bert Niehaus (discusscontribs) 07:03, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
