Re: OpenChain Education Work Group Kickoff

Hi Jeremiah,


Good day, it’s good to know you are already working on the topic.


The personas concept (different addressing) was also discussed during one of the discussions.


Andrew Katz and  Marcel Kurzmann also had such similar ideas which was even discussed. We can try collaborating all the ideas and see where we land.

@Andrew and @Marcel, could you kindly drop in your views J


Regarding the copyrights and licensing part, I would request Shane to reply on this.


No idea if LF would plan to sell it or not. They already have made their other OSS trainings free for individual users. So I’m guessing it’ll remain free for the individual users.




Best regards,

Dear All,


Good day, I would like to inform all the subscribers and volunteers that OpenChain education subgroup is live now.


The discussion to bring this group to action was decided during regular Monday calls of openchain project.


Kindly subscribe/join to


The core agenda of this group to use trainings available from Linux foundation Courses + Curriculum of Openchain project and adapt those to bring up a openchain compliant OSS trainings for all possible roles.


This would also help us all in providing universal training and overview across the corporations on OSS topics.


Summary of previous discussions on Monday calls regarding the education:

·        Explore possibilities of mapping the training for individual role perspectives (Topics relevant to: Sales, purchase, developers, management, etc.., respectively)


Perhaps we start with the creation of "personas" for each position?


I'd be happy to work on one for a software developer, that's what I'm working on currently.



·        These training contents shall be later shared with LFC coordinators for adaptation of the content in currently available web courses offered by LF


We probably need to understand the licensing and copyright here because the company I work for won't let their copyright be used without attribution and potentially licensing.



·        Later the web-trainings can be purchased from LF and hosted in interested company platforms for the company employees training fulfillment process.


Is the plan for companies and contributors here to create content that LF will sell?








Next course of action: can we all decide on a timeline for a first virtual discussion, on points of interest and how we split the training contribution activities?


Please share your comments.


Thank you.
