About the SUNY Oneonta OpenLab

A Place to Learn, Work, and Share: SUNY Oneonta’s OpenLab is an open-source digital platform where students, faculty, and staff can meet to learn, work, and share their ideas. Its goals are to support teaching and learning, enable connection and collaboration, and strengthen the intellectual and social life of the college community.

An Open Lab: Unlike closed online teaching systems, the OpenLab allows classes across the curriculum to communicate with one another and the world beyond SUNY Oneonta. Like a lab, it provides a space where faculty and students can work together, experiment, and innovate.

Open Source Software: We’ve built the OpenLab using the open source blogging, publishing, and social networking platform Commons in a Box OpenLab. The OpenLab team combined aspects of WordPress and BuddyPress to create a network of sites. We’re proud to be part of an educational community committed to open-source technologies.
