We have started a Mastodon instance at OpenEdTech.social and you’re welcome to join us!
Our main Open EdTech channel is at https://openedtech.social/@openedtech
Mastodon is an open-source, free software that allows users to run self-hosted social networking services. It has microblogging features similar to Twitter. Each user is a part of a specific Mastodon instance (also known as a server), which functions as a federated social network and enables communication between users on various instances. Users have the freedom to choose a node whose policies they value while still being part of the entire global social network.
Mastodon is a part of the Fediverse, a collection of server platforms that use the ActivityPub standard from W3C to communicate, which is one we are considering in some of our designing for future Open EdTech.
