I’m privileged to be be one half of the technical mentoring team for the Jetpack for Learning Design Challenge, along with the prolific Andy Edmonds. We’re well under way to getting the participants going with implementing their ideas in Phase 2. You can read about some of them on the Mozilla wiki. I’m looking forward to seeing the ideas turn into great browser add-ons.
A huge hat-tip to Frank Hecker for getting the project going, and I wish him much success and happiness in his new pursuits. Philipp Schmidt has done amazing things pulling things together, and he writes about Phase 2:
The selected teams are eligible to participate in a set of online seminars covering Jetpack development and user interface design. They will also get support and mentorship from the Mozilla community to help them turn their ideas into Jetpack prototypes. At the end of phase II up to 10 participants will be invited to a hands-on Design Camp at SXSW Interactive 2010.
