This list has been growing, based on your feedback. Have a look and keep the suggestions coming!

Things are moving here at MSU for CourseWeaver, http://www.courseweaver.org . For a while now, I have had an office in Spartan Innovations, and we are about ready to float the first version of our business plan. This can go many ways, but a preferred way for me would be to get funding from more universities than just MSU and form a consortium around this entity.

I would need some help in identifying the right person at your institution to bounce off the business plan and the vision, once we have a "public" version of it.
