I am watching for to go live. I have even created a wiki to start some conversation about the space (what do we want, what do we need?). Would you be willing to join a wiki-conversation about education?

If you are curious, maybe you would visit Curriki Workshop, and share 2¢ about online curriculum development. What do you think should emerge from Curriki? BTW - XWiki is the wiki engine that Curriki is deploying, so by posting at Curriki Workshop, we can learn the wiki markup that will be in play once Curriki goes live.

Just a heads up to folks about what's happening over at Curriki. The site has been adding content and updating tools so that members can develop, publish, and access open source curricula. The new includes something called the Currikulum Builder - it's an editing tool that allows members to develop curriculum materials through a collaborative, wiki-based platform. Here's an interesting lesson that one educator created using the Currikulum Builder:

There's lots of great stuff and the more the community uses it, the better it will be. If you haven't already, check it out.
