Dear OSGeo colleagues,

Regarding our proposal to start an OSGeo educational webinar. It  
occurred to me that some on these lists might not fully understand  
what we are proposing.

First, please check out [1] -- it is a recorded webinar stored on  
YouTube and example of what we hope to achieve. (This is a webinar put  
on by Phil Davis' GeoTech center -- Phil is an OSGeo education  
committee member, and nicely providing the webinar hosting system).

Second, I urge knowledgable representatives from OSGeo software  
projects to consider working with us to schedule an "Introduction to  
your technology" webinar. Other webinar ideas are WELCOME. Please add  
your ideas (and your name, email) to our webinar ideas wiki page [2].

All of these would be recorded and, with permission of the speaker,  
stored on YouTube and hopefully inventoried in the new educational  
material repository being hosted by Suchith Anand and his ELOGeo group  
at the University of Nottingham, UK. See our main OSGeo education page  

I do hope some on these lists will step up and help us move this idea  
forward. This is a great marketing opportunity, especially knowing we  
can store these on YouTube and in our online searchable database.

OSGeo Edu committee chair
