[school-discuss] Re: [seul-edu] Linux in Academia

Hi Janus,

I am CC-ing this to the more active schoolforge-edu mailing list also. If
you have not scanned the archives or website (www.shoolforge.net), you
might like to see the collection of free-software-in-education groups that
have gathered there. (SEUL/edu is also present there.)

Janus, some of us at SEUL/edu started a 'GNU/Linux in Education Case
Studies Repository Project" that has a listing of some 30-50 schools
(possibly more). The project has a great scope of goals, including housing
the biggest repository of the whitepapers on GNU/Linux in academia, which
has yet to be accomplished. Maybe you can help us fill out that goal.

Basically, if you are preparing papers about GNU/Linux in Academia, they
might fit right into our Case Studies project and we can talk about other
papers or perhaps you might know other academics who have researched the

I would love to hear more from you directly, about your work, and about
the papers you are working on. What do you think?

Thanks for any input, and welcome to the list, Janus!

[ BTW, I think that Jennifer Dozar from the list was also collecting data
on counting schools that use free software in their curriculum or within
their walls, so you might try to 'google' or scan the archives for her
email address. (If you can't find it I'll search for it for you.) ]
