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 , . 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 . 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! :-)
