	OWL1-1:Education

This is a good stimulus for pointing out that I am supposed to be  
coordinating an "education" section for OWL 1.1/OWL.

(Apologies that I have been otherwise engaged during this conversation.)

There is a basic wiki at
http://code.google.com/p/owl1-1/wiki/Education

Current content - zilch
Current people - I am lonely!

If volunteers will mail me with [OWL1-1:Education] in the subject  
line, I will get them added to the Wiki.  it isn't open, or wasn't,  
but we aren't trying to be exclusive.  If somebody could smmarise it  
and draw it up into the start of a list of requirements for  
educational material that would be great.

Regards

Alan

PS
note that there is also a Requirements task force which may be of  
interest to some of the same people.



------------------

In the meantime, there is of course the Pizza tutorial and other CO- 
ODE work

http://www.co-ode.org/resources/

other material on my tutorials pages that might be adapted (not all  
of which has made it onto the CO-ODE site yet)

http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~rector/tutorials/

and on the course page for our Ontologies and OWL course,
