Hi Tom,

There is indeed a group of people doing Edu stuff with Plone, and the
WebLion folks are part of that. I'm a bit out of the loop on what they have
been doing lately, but they aim to have PloneEdu set up as a group to handle
these things.

I've CCed Mike Halm here, he should be able to fill you in on what they are
doing.
