Appropedia University[edit source]

The Appropedia University phrase is an attempt at an engaging way to describe our learning programs. We need to be clear that Appropedia itself is not the university, of course - will do some editing to that effect. --Chriswaterguy 08:19, 1 March 2011 (PST)

Informal courses[edit source]

If we have the resources to do this (and that might be just a few keen and well-organized individuals in the community) we could possibly organize informal courses using Appropedia and other sources of content. P2PU is one platform - but I don't know what tools it offers and how good it is at helping people follow through. --Chriswaterguy 04:24, 26 August 2012 (PDT)
