Git-Syllabus is a tool designed to provide a method for pedagogical materials to be more visibly open-sourced and to allow academics to take advantage of the version control and forking afforded by the GitHub platform. It allows for metadata and centralized repositories to co-exist synchronously with independently-run WordPress installations. This sort of federation allows for materials to be found, but does not force users to critically rely on a centralized service. This process will ideally facilitate a conversation about open-source pedagogy, and retrofit that style of access and discovery to materials that were developed and published without such elements.
