I would be very interested in your ideas, I hope that you will share them
soon, I would love to get started sooner, rather than later.

Hi Ben:

I have started 2 threads on the marketing list

[libreoffice-marketing] LibO in Education (JK-High School and NOT post grad. university/college)
[libreoffice-marketing] LibO in Academia

I am really interested in improving the LibO suite pagackaging so that it better suits these 2 areas of education. IMHO, I hope to work with interested dev. (once they identify themselves as interested) so that plugins could be either moded or developed to accomplish this.

After this, we could devise a more concentrated marketing strategy to gain a larger foothold in the educational field. I have had 18 years of experience in this field in Ontario, Canada and have worked on committees at the provincial and local board levels as well as administrative levels as a school board specialist. I may be able to help with market strategies as well as expected results from approaching federal, provincial and local board levels, both at the public, catholic (we have this division in Canada), private levels. I also have contacts and could probably arrange for group testing at the teacher as well as student levels.

As for Academia, I have had over 30 years of ties both at the academic (I have taught at some summer workshops approx. 15-20 years ago at University level) and technical level (I am also a piano tuner by trade and period keyboard restoring specialist). I can probably convince an extremely small group for testing purposes, but I think we may have already enough academics on the list who are prepared to help in this way.
