The first version of the CloudEngine software was developed at the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University by Juliette Culver and Nick Freear. Juliette is on maternity leave from October 2010 to November 2011 so Nick will be taking over from her as the lead developer during this period. The development was funded both by internal university funds and by the JISC Curriculum Design program, with the internationalization work funded by the EUPT3 project. As part of this work, we also developed the Cloudworks website which is based on the CloudEngine software.
We strongly encourage and welcome contributions to the software. We do not have a formal governance model yet and in terms of our resources we clearly have to prioritise work requested by our funders, but we plan to move to a more community-led style of governance in future.
We would be interested in any potential collaborations or funding opportunities for further CloudEngine development.
