There has been misunderstanding about the educational efforts Let me try
to clarify the current "mess" with the educational effort:
This might be a point for the next chair meeting!
-OWASP Education Project
-> is an older OWASP project I inherrit from Seba
--> This project is about creating and managing (enabling off creation)
educational material from the OWASP knowlegde base.
--> You could see this as the factory to create educational material
-> is pushed by Dinis and resulted into the OWASP Academy Portal Project
--> project target is about offering an educational material, specially
targeted for Universities and Educational institutions
--> you could see this as the shop for Educational material created within
the Education Project
-OWASP Educational Supporters
-> This is a membership program, especially for Educational institutions.
--> During (if I am not mistaken) the Summit 2008 there have been major
changes in the membership categories.
In this process, the Educational Supporter Membership has been created
to enable easy commitment to OWASP for them!
-OWASP Student Chapters
-> This is a project, as it has not the means of competing with existing
--> Different then regular chapters, we have a project as we need to keep
them connected to OWASP
Say, they need more guidance / hand-holding.
-OWASP Student Members (proposed by Martin)
-> As part of the Student Chapters, this is what we hope to achieve for the
students being actieve!
--> To lower the bar for students being committed to OWASP!
-> University Outreach.
--> as part of the summit, we started (or where trying to) the University
--> you could see the student chapters, Academy portal and student
membership as actions to get universities and educational institutions
committed to OWASP.
I will put this on the OWASP wiki as soon I have time to do so!
