Community-based curriculum development
As the laptop project will roll out to large groups of people at once, an effective mechanism for collaborative curriculum sharing and development will prove indispensible.
Sharing data among distinct archives
At this time, several teams are engaged with the creation of curriculum sharing websites. This multi-faceted approach should be encouraged as each site will be able to focus on a different subset of user needs, bringing sharing and collaboration behavior to the largest possible number of educators. However, in order to maintain the value of this situation, we need a flexible system for sharing data from multiple archives.
We will also need a way to sync up the data coming from communities with less reliable access to the Internet.
Among the challenges in creating a useful system for curriculum sharing is the design of an evaluation tool. The best solution will balance the limited time of an educator with the need for meaningful data.
