  • WE/OERF - primarily academic institutions and nonprofits (globally), but also relationships with corporates.
    • membership model (levels)
  • wiki for OER content development - WikiEducator


  • what's Atlassian business model, particularly on academic / nonprofit installs (i.e., low-cost, free)?
  • wiki - for internal entreprise / project planning / info-sharing - Atlassian?

More Technical

  • install vs. hosted versions
    • I see hosted only available to commercial
    • hosted good 1st strategy - to pilot internally with minimal IT support, using a hosted version
    • Overall - what's the level of support required for IT/maintenance
    • Exports - can all content be migrated from the hosted version into the 'installed' version?
  • security - behind firewall (can be password protected}?
  • where is data located?
    • country installations? re: government requirements, security

Value Considerations

  • Could there be a strategic relationship between WE/OERF?
    • a member of OER Foundation?
  • what would an WE/OERF - Atlassian relationship look like?
    • for Atlassian
    • for WE/OERF
  • what value could be available to WE/OERF members
    • RF: Confluence, and possibly SharePoint connector (but could be others)
    • also, financial/career opportunity for more technical members of our global network, to support customers in install, deployment and maintenance of Atlassian products (i.e., Confluence)
