Hi Gerhard,
this is a great idea, and from my personal point of view it is a very

were going to to open ahead of time was that you should not open until you
have the important issues solved. A premature start often enough kills a good

So since you let the cat out of the bag: Try to get the relevant issues
-- What is the general procedure (registration, course schedules and the
-- Course content
-- Teachers (!)
-- Business model

If I can be of any help, just tell me.
