We meet Thursdays at 10PM. We mainly use chat rooms on AIM, we also use the |Project Discussion Space on Moodle, and an external wiki

Section 2: Your Topic

Intellectual Property and Contract

4. Choose an issue.

Our topic area is open access to educational materials at universities within SL. A number of different schools use Second Life for different purposes.

5. Describe your dispute.

The code made by the Berkman Center in Second Life for learning is easy to share, it would be great if the Berkman Center could work towards more open access to educational tools and materials.

Section 3: Your project

   * persuade Berkman Island to take a particular action 
   * persuade other educational institutions to take a similar action

==6. Pinpoint your goals. ==

   * raise awareness among the SL community of your particular issue

6a. State your goal for the project: What does your group intend to accomplish?

We propose that the powers that be in Berkman Island adapt a mission statement, in which Berkman Island announces its dedication to open access for online learning in an attempt to generate interest among other educational institutions in second life.

6b. State your audience for the project: Whom do you intend to influence?

We intend to influence The Berkmans/The Berkman Center.

Section 5: Open Questions

Please state any questions or unresolved issues relating to your project. These can be questions for us or just a sort of "to-do list" of unresolved issues that your group needs to work out. For instance, you might want to build a cool object, but none of you feel that you can do that on yourown. An unresolved issue might therefore be how to recruit someone to help with the build. This is probably the most important part of this entire plan, especially in the early phases!
