School of Webcraft at Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU)  wants people like you
to get involved in organising April's cycle of courses focused on open and
standards based web development. If you've got an idea for a course, study
group or workshop you'd like to participate in, just create a course
** <http://p2pu.org/create-draft-course-panel>** or view existing course
offer your assistance to existing participants. Courses are scheduled
begin after April 18th but feel free to propose start dates and course
lengths that suit your schedule.

School of Webcraft is developed in partnership between P2PU and Mozilla
Foundation with the goal of making it easy for people around the world to
gain skills and build careers using open web technology. For April's cycle,
we're particularly looking for volunteers to lead projects about beginner
skills and front-end development, particularly the exciting new features of
HTML5 and CSS3. To get some ideas of projects that have previously run in
School of Webcraft and that you can offer to run again, check out our course
*.** *** <http://piratepad.net/ep/search?query=%5D.>But don't let our ideas
restrict your imagination---you're welcome to propose any web development
project as long as it doesn't rely on* *proprietary code or software.

P2PU, Mozilla and School of Webcraft are also developing new

topics such as JavaScript and accessible design <http://badges.p2pu.org/>.
If you've got an idea of a great badge for web developers to earn, you can
make a suggestion here <http://builder.p2pu.org/> or as part of your course

For all project ideas School of Webcraft's community is on hand to answer
questions about appropriate resources and will provide feedback as you
develop your project. From *March 14th* you're invited to take part in
the *P2PU

your online facilitation skills.  If you've got any questions about School
