Project Topic Area
Group Meeting Time and Communications Mechanisms
Our topic area is open access to educational materials at universities within SL. A number of different schools use Second Life for different purposes.
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.
* persuade Berkman Island to take a particular action
* persuade other educational institutions to take a similar action
* raise awareness among the SL community of your particular issue
What We 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.
Audience: Who We Intend To Influence
We intend to influence The Berkmans/The Berkman Center.

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!
