The success of OpenWetWare depends critically on cultivating and maintaining an active user base.  We plan to dedicate funds to enable tutorials, conference visits, advertising, and other mechanisms for recruiting new users to OpenWetWare.  We also will begin an [[OpenWetWare:Seminar Series|OpenWetWare seminar series]] hosted at MITThis series would discuss perspectives on open practices and communities in science.  We feel this would be important for two reasons.  First, it would highlight groups and individuals in science actively striving to accomplish some of the same goals as those of OpenWetWare (e.g. PLoS, Science Commons, etc.)  Second, it would provide an amazing opportunity before every talk to introduce OpenWetWare to others.

__NOEDITSECTION__
-
In the long term, the success of OpenWetWare relies on the assumption that the number of users actively curating the information of OpenWetWare will scale with the amount of content generated.  However, there has been little work to examine how collaborative tools can best be used to develop information resources, such as the OpenWetWare protocol collection.  We believe the project would benefit dramatically from the active establishment of community standards for organizing content in OpenWetWare.  We will establish a UROP position to evaluate and implement templates and other methods for organizing information in OpenWetWare.

==Integration with laboratory classes==
+
-
To complement its mission to promote an open culture in biological science and engineering, OpenWetWare will be integrated into the curriculum of laboratory classes.  As a pilot experiment, MIT's [[BE.109 | BE.109 Laboratory fundamentals of biological engineering]] will be relying heavily on OpenWetWare to disseminate course content and to serve as a shared space for students, TA's and instructors to communicate.

+
-
*'''Update:'''  Overall the course integration seems to be working reasonably well.  While the BE.109 site is not being edited at a very high frequency, the edits that have been made are useful and high quality.  The same appears to be true about [[BE.180]].  Having the site on a wiki also seems to facilitate all the instructors and TA's for the course contributing to course content.
