The WikiEducator community plans to setup a community-driven initiative to provide and support training including: wiki skills, creation and use of OER, open licensing, online learning, teaching, mentoring as well as promoting research on related topics by establishing a "WikiEducator" community college, with an appropriate name and open procedures to be determined by the community through open consultations in the wiki.

As a first step, this rough consensus poll seeks to gauge opinion on the scope of the proposed initiative and preferred name for the initiative based on submissions made by the community.

Some members have submitted their nominations directly in the wiki and others by replying to the relevant discussion threads, for example, Shall we establish a WikiEducator Community College? and WikiEducator Community College Poll and website. All the nominations received in via these lists have been inlcuded in the poll
