Hi Jim,

If you like to, you can subscribe to our educators mailing list here;
Here you can also read the logs of past emails.

We hope to achieve an active cooperation on creation - and/or exchange  
- of educational material. The Blender Foundation also looks at

- publishing a course book for Blender, targeted at teachers to use in  
- setting up a support program for trainers, with courses, educational  
material, certification, etc

Almost all documentation material we have on blender3d.org (not the  
gallery!) is free to be re-used for third parties. This respecting  
normal copyright and crediting practices of course. Check the license  
we use for our documentation;
