Ellipsis: An Open Source Application for Scholarly Collaboration
Ellipsis is a Web application for creating interactions with text and other media. Unlike other collection/presentation or learning management systems, it focuses on designing interactions between users. With minimal support, faculty can go beyond merely setting permissions or creating layouts; they can create unique workflows for collaboration, which can integrate annotations, discussion boards, visualizations, and media authoring. These workflows can include assessments at various points, and they can culminate in media-rich online portfolio presentations.
