I'm in  to the extent that OpenCourseWare fits anyone's model.

Couldn't agree more Martin.  While I haven't had time to address the LRMI proposal fully, I have been doing some course modeling that is not yet complete.

It would be useful to bring in some other course vendors - both free (e.g. http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm) and commercial (e.g. http://www.newsu.org/) to get their input.  I will reach out but would welcome input from anyone on this or the LRMI list that falls into this category.

Hi Greg, Dan:

What we should keep on our radar is checking that you can model commercial courses / training using both the LRMI and the GoodRelations extension of schema.org.
