CAN GELC BE UNIQUE?

Posted by bkurshan on May 9, 2006 at 9:24 PM PDT

I have been busy the past two weeks meeting with developers and educators that are exploring and "playing" in the education open source community. It is amazing what this community thinks about the opportunity for GELC and what it can become. Several ideas include a repository to build and distribute open source textbooks - which are probably the first curricula ever developed for teaching and learning; a place for assessing the progress of a learner; a virtual design center for creating a curriculum from open education resources; a repository of courses; and a community for discussion about open source curriculum. I think all of these ideas will become part of GELC. But, which one is unique? Which one will make GELC the "thought leader" in the open source curriculum arena? Help me to prioritize the space.
