Seeking leads on university usages of Git
In which I ask for leads and examples in support of a conference presentation I'm to give.
I am seeking interesting examples of use of Git in universities
- especially in tracking things that are not "development" of the "source code" of "software"
- especially usages with teaching, learning, research, administration, or outreach aspects.
Things like: use of Git
- in the academic authoring and publication process, especially in implementing peer review
- in student team collaboration and instructor feedback to students
- in collaboration on not-traditional-source-code artifacts, e.g. music, art, experiment protocols
- in making the history of artifacts available for student exploration
- in authoring, evolving, tracking policy
- in driving down the friction in web and other content management
These will be supporting background, context, and if appropriate examples for a conference presentation on the potential of Git / GitHub / GitLab in universities.
Any leads, examples, conversations appreciated.
I am reachable on Google Plus and via my UW-Madison email address.
