Training and Education WG
We changed times from 10:00 PST to 8:00 PST due to requests from participants in China. Call attendance dropped from mid 20s to 15-18. There are 2-4 new participants on each call. Enthusiasm is keen, experience is low. Many completed the first edX course and want to learn, based on the edX course call for participation and the words 'training and education'.
The group includes more 'learners' than 'content developers'. For example, many on the call do not know/understand GitHub. As such, we're developing learning materials for participants to learn the basics before they can start to test or develop training materials.
Regular meetings have been held, no meetings have been missed. The chat channel has low activity (1-3 per day). We mailing list out tentative agendas and started emailing possible action items for those in the wings. Work products include a Concepts List that does have good collaborative input. Required Discuss briefly how active the working group mailing lists and chat channels are. Are there regular meetings being held? What work products are being worked on? Reports should list the work products created since your last report, along with the creation date of each. Conversely, if activity is minimal, discuss how the working group plans to address that - whether through seeking out new contributors/participants/leaders or planning towards a move to an End of Life state.
Required: What deliverables will you be working on in the upcoming quarter?
Required A healthy working group should survive the departure of any single participant. Is the working group growing/shrinking?
Optional Please provide any additional information that you feel would be useful for TSC to be aware.
