Hi everyone,

I know this is a formal email list, but it would be really great to  
have someone (or a small board) with time and energy to coordinate  
things here.

For me, the biggest challenge would be this:

** Collect & publish training material, aimed at teachers

I mean training material that's formatted in a way you can schedule  
classes, or programs for students lasting a semester. It can have  
"teacher companion" material (so you can prepare well) and material to  
hand out to students (exercises and tests).

I've been discussing this with people several times already... and a  
lot of people really like it, but it doesn't get a momentum yet. Main  
challenge therefore is how to get something like this organized...

A related topic would be this:

** Develop standardized tests for certification

As discussed extensively on the Blender Conference; we can invest time  
to provide standardized tests for trainers and schools to use for  
students, and allow them to certify students via these tests. These  
certifications can have a cool status but always be connected by who  
issued it; like:

Blender (R) Certified Specialist: Character Modeler, issued by xxx,  
city, country.

Also for this system I'd like to see people to investigate and  
coordinate it.
