Very nice, and a little bit scary.As Caroline said, we are breaking out of our comfort zone and engaging teacher. Yikes!From the teachers that I have talked to and Caroline's recommendation, we are establishing a separate community for teacher and students. Apparently, wikis, mailing lists and IRC channels, which are primarily populated by developers, are not user friendly:(The overall goal is to provide a means for small deployment to work together to create the synergy of a large scale saturation deployment. I am envisioning starting with three themes or courses:Using Sugar - A gentle introduction by teacher and for teachers into Sugar.Teaching with Sugar - A place were teachers learn to teach use the Sugar interface, activities, and pedagogy.Lesson plans - A place to teachers to develop and share lesson plans.But, Please Note, the only time I have interacted with live students was as a TA in an engineering finance. So I may be totally wrong:/)

If you would like to set up a course please let me or David Farning know.
So far our plans are to use it support collaboration by nontechnical groups that maybe more used to a web based forum then a mailing list. However, its available for repositories and other uses as well.
It is being hosted by Solution Grove. We also support LAMS so we'll hook that into Moodle next week so folks can play with it if they like. We are open to trying out new things, installing Moodle Modules etc. so let us know what you need.
