A recent workshop held on the 9th September 2009 at the Open University discussed the issues that surround mathematical content in digital form.
Bringing together leading mathematicians and practitioners involved in the digitisation of mathematical content, the workshop addressed areas such as: collaboration, standards, improving practice, and reuse of software, in relation to mathematic content in electronic form.
The workshop had three aims:
- Content related technical problems in supporting eLearning in mathematics
- Standards related to digitisation of mathematics research literature, and:
- Formulas and equationsin otherwise non-mathematical content
The workshop has now produced a range of slides and video and a final report which are available from the Workshop website.
