Uncommon Thinking for the Common Good™Stay
Hi, Based on our experience with LON-CAPA, earlier this month we launched the CourseWeaver initiative, http://www.courseweaver.org/ We would like to keep this open instead of going the commercial route, but that needs partners, funding, etc. Since we have a lot of the pieces in place, we believe it will initially take five good programmers about three years to pull this off - probably around $3M in initial funding if this is supposed to stay in the university realm. As this is not a research project, the typical funding avenues like National Science Foundation, etc, are not an option. Then, of course, there is the small problem of longterm sustainability … is there really no other way than going commercial? Any ideas or feedback from this group would be welcome. Thanks, - Gerd. -- Gerd Kortemeyer, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Physics Education Director, LON-CAPA Project Michigan State University Currently on sabbatical: Massachusetts Institute of Technology http://www.lite.msu.edu/kortemeyer/ ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
