I'm on the governing council of WikiEducator. - http://www.wikieducator.org/WikiEducator:Community_Council/Members
We are 8500+ members strong, with 7,500+ unique visitors per day, and a top 100,000 website, and are growing rapidly.
WikiEducator is a global open source, Open Education Initiative launched to create a free and open version of the world's education curriculum by 2015 in line with the UN's Millennium Development Goals – http://www.wikieducator.org
Since 2006, WikiEducator has been supported by the Commonwealth of Learning - http://ww.col.org), but due to rapid growth, it will be the flagship initiative of a new International Centre for Open Education / Open Education Foundation based in New Zealand. Athabasca University, Canada and Otago Polytechnic, NZ are among our founding members.
We have developed new models of cost-effective e-learning design and delivery (i.e., 30% improvement), and have been successful in reaching new, alternate sources of project funding, with partners who believe that Open Education is a renewable and sustainable resource. Please see a Map of WikiEducator Benefits: http://www.wikieducator.org/Image:WE_Benefits_V1.pdf
We are interested in dialogue with potential partners to explore the possibilities, including the development of pilot projects – http://www.wikieducator.org/Pilot_Projects
