Ensemble - The Online Community Center for Computing Educators: Demonstration

This demo will introduce attendees to Ensemble, the online community center for all computing educators. Ensemble provides content, communities, and tools for computing educators and students. The content consists of freely available computing education resources stored within Ensemble or at other locations. Ensemble provides federated search, indexing, annotation, reviews, and other services to make these resources accessible, visible, and more useful to the community. Ensemble also provides information streams such as news, notices, and blogs of interest to computing educators. Ensemble communities support interaction among computing educators via facilities such as discussion forums, posting of working papers, and connections to venues such as Twitter and Facebook. These services support open collaborations such as a CS1 community site and also hosts closed working spaces for groups like the ACM Education Board and the Future of Computing Education Summit working groups.
