Well, I know of many places we can collect creative commons and open
licensed courses in various subjects, and am willing to go ahead and
start putting that up, including a course on python I did for my
students, but first I'd like some clarification on where that could be
done. It is currently unclear to me where we are going to collect and
host such material, is it courses.sugarlabs.org, moodle.sugarlabs.org,
or schools.sugarlabs.org?

Kind Regards,
David Van Assche
