Getting education content contributions from the user community

Registered by Richard Weideman on 2007-10-31

The Edubuntu web site is:
* pretty much static and unchanging
* primarily focused on technical information about the operating system

There is little motivation for our user community (and specifically teachers) to return to visit the site.

We would like to discuss ways to get education content contributions from the user community which will produce content:
* which will allow us to keep the site "current & live"
* which relates to first hand user experiences (and not just our product
* which relates to teaching and learning

Richard Weideman asked David Trask if he thought it was feasible to set his school kids some assignment work which would result in content we could add to the site, in return for "credit or acknolwedgement as contributors".

In principle, he thought this could work; although his kids are in the younger age groups, he felt that they could assist with "user experiencs or a kids corner".

This session will discuss how we can formalise this into a proof of concept mini-project, and then generalise to other schools and age levels.

Long term targets could be to work towards content areas such as:
* Programming at school using *buntu

etc.
