Dear World Possible,
Would you be able to create a “Deployment Wiki” where users can share their advice and files regarding how to implement Rachel-based projects? (For now, we can drag & drop files into these Discourse Deployment posts.)
As you alluded to in your post “Introducing RACHEL to your target community”, the technical how-to information is only 10% of the knowledge required to implement a successful educational program.
(1) One of my first questions, which others likely have as well, is “How much of the Rachel content is available in my language?”. As I look at each content provider’s website to determine if they have a translation project for their interface and/or content, I will record that and would like a place to share it.
(2) Many of us will need to write requests for funding that include estimating and justifying costs, hours, expected impact & how to measure it, and more. It would be really great to share our methods and/or proposals so that we learn from each other, write better proposals, and save time. (The admitted downside is someone cutting & pasting a proposal and looking professional when they don’t know really what they are doing.)
(3) You have a partner program and thus presumably have written some guides. Can you share those with non-partners?
The letters here are a good start but I suspect that there’s a lot of knowledge behind the scenes that’s not yet publicly available for others to leverage.
