IAEP — It’s An Education Project (not a laptop project!) list – a model for community communication for open development education projects.
Although I have subscribed to this list for a long time, I have just restarted actually skimming the contents again. For me, this works.
It comes out frequently, so it stays on my radar. I can read through it when I have time. For the contributors, this is a simple to maintain record of the project’s process and progress. It is an easy distribution mechanism to ensure that anyone and everyone who might have an interest gets regular updates and can follow along. For lurkers and interested parties, it is a good source of information related to the project and the broader educational environment.
I would love to see something like this coming out of the team, even if it is just a weekly couple of paragraphs summing up the Hangouts for the week. News and requests for help or input would also be appreciated. Make it easy for casual supporters to follow the project, contribute even in small ways and celebrate the successes.
