Wonderful Cameron! Keep us all posted and appreciate your 
efforts/leadership here. I'm quite sure others are actively developing 
educational material as well.

FYI - I'm getting +1 votes on these webinar ideas... great. What I think 
we should do is see if we have willing presenters and content (which I 
think we have), and then figure out how we implement.

On my end, I am still trying to get permission for our possible use of 
the GIS Body of Knowledge from AAG as a guiding framework for our 
organizing various educational material.

Finally ** Reminder all **:

If  you have relevant content you are willing to share, please take a 
moment to post it to our educational inventory system [1], [2]. The last 
post was Sept, 2009 -- I KNOW there is newer material out there...

And before you post your new or revised material, please consider 
uploading the source content to our Subversion system [3].  We really 
should be able to implement a system where new derivative work on OSgeo 
edu related material is possible! We've got a unique opportunity as a 
collective group to do this globally... but we need people to step up 
and help lead this. Thanks in advance, all! :-)
