Great to hear that you are doing this! We haven't been able to get to a 
full curriculum but I am surprised that you are not aware of our 
educational inventory system at [1]. One of our goals is to establish a 
system for "new derivative work." So, for example, if there is material 
on our system that you might want to convert to Korean, I'd be 
interested in seeing that happen (assuming the author of the content 
allows new derivatives).

Also, if from this event you produce new educational materials that you 
are willing to share, I encourage you (and others on this list) to post 
metadata entries to the material at [2].

Please note that we are trying to develop a FOSS4G educational 
curriculum but it is a difficult collective action challenge. See [3] 
for a list of what is on our agenda. We'd welcome anyone to join us to 
try and assist in achieving some of these goals.

Finally, I'm hoping there will be an educational "content sprint" at the 
Denver conference. I still need to work on the coordination of that.
