I think this is a good idea, since they have a special section for
education. In the SEUL/edu we have a large project that involves many
people and aims to get a high quality educational system to schools and all
who wants educational software at no or low cost! I'll loos into exactly
what information is needed..
..Looking at the entry form I propose the following:
Project name: SEUL/edu
Project co-ordinator: Doug Loss?
Description (1 sentence): Development and collection of educational
software for Linux.
Brief project summary: We have a good deal of easy-to-use educational
software for school of ages 6-15, as well as some home educational
applications free of charge, like the whole system.
Since when is the project implemented and running? ????
Objectives and innovation: By programming and cooperation make sure that
all aspects and subjects of education in a school of ages 6-15 are covered
by good high wuality software and documentation of usage.
User profile: <15
Target gender: 50/50
Interest: ?end consumer?
Geographical focus: global
Number of users (approximate) interacting with the project each month:
How often does the typical user interact with the project? several times
Describe how users interact with the project: Use of software and
Are there any partners involved in your project: no? (Well, the wholde
linux community, but no specific?)
Sustainability: >6 years (updates are free)
Approximate total budget: <10 000 USD
Source of funding: other (or SEUL?)
Project economically self sufficient now? Yes
.. etc etc...
