The mission of the Fedora Education SIG (Edu SIG) is to optimize Fedora for use by teachers and learners, both within and outside of the context of educational institutions.
We do this by building, maintaining, and evangelizing a strong ecosystem of educational packages within Fedora and by supporting learners in using these packages as tools to reach their curricular goals.
This includes, but is not limited to:
- creating and maintain a Fedora Education Spin CD
- getting more educational applications included in the Fedora ecosystem
- communicating between the different education-related efforts within the Fedora project
Plan of Action
Short term plans:
- form this SIG
- get people together in one palace and discuss how to move on. A dedicated Fedora Education List exists already and we'll likely reuse it for this SIG. Maybe an IRC meeting now and then might be a could idea as well.
- get the Fedora Education Spin finished, tested and approved by rel-eng and the board as official spin.
Joining the SIG
Joining the Education SIG is dead simple: Just add your name below and start communicating with the rest of the members (right now we discuss the spin on fedora-devel-list). If you are not yet a Fedora contributor yet you need to become a member of the cla_done group in the Fedora accounts system; that way you'll get access to the wiki.
