Hello Jennifer and Don,
The requirements T. Saito listed on the Ministry website do indeed give us a clear focus for the project - the Ministry and teachers are looking for ready-made EdTech items that helps students learn. Before breaking into teams could we decide which sample course materials we have listed in the Courseware Showcase are most useful teaching materials for students and teachers (from experience) https://showcase.moodlejapan.org/
Perhaps we can have about three or four different "courses" listed on one Moodle site for JHS, HS, University....
If we decide on the course templates today and by Monday finalize this, will only take a few days to get the site arranged.
