I think the developers should be introduced sooner.
I would include a "Meet the development team" perhaps the first link in the course guide. In distance education there is tremendous value in supporting the affective learning domain when learners can "meet" the people behind the scenes. You could think about including bio photos and a few personal words from each developer.
In my thinking about improving the OERu course navigation and structural component this subpage might be better placed with the course meta-data - -but we can worry about this placement later in the process. In the wiki environment its easy to move pages to other sections.
