Hello Open Textbook folk!
Just to quickly introduce myself, I'm Laura, and I joined the OKFN a couple
of weeks ago. I'm a Community Coordinator, and one of my particular roles
is to look after the working groups and make sure that they are all
flourishing and happy.
Open Textbook got off to a great start a couple of years ago, but more
recently this mailing list and the Open Textbook website have been pretty
As you may have noticed, a new volunteer, Cris Noble, has recently been in
touch and is keen to get involved with the group. I think this is a great
opportunity to get Open Textbook up and running again, and to make it an
active and exciting project once more.
If you are keen to get involved with Open Textbook, it would be really
great if you could send an email round to the mailing list. Once we've had
some responses, we can begin to bounce ideas around and move things
I do appreciate that for some of you circumstances may have changed and you
may no longer feel able to get involved. For those of you who are still
interested though, I'd really encourage you to get in touch. This has the
potential to be a great project, and whatever commitment you feel able to
make (even if its just reading the mail and being a quiet supporter!) we'd
love to know you were on board :)
Hoping to hear from lots of you very soon!
With best wishes for a wonderful Christmas,
Open Knowledge Foundation
