Hi Frans,

I work in the Higher Education (HE) sector at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT), Ireland (www.cit.ie) and I'm also the organiser of OpenStack Ireland meetups (http://www.meetup.com/OpenStack-Ireland/). At CIT we run various cloud related academic programmes (http://cloud.cit.ie) which are delivered online to a global audience. For sometime now I have been thinking about offering an online course related to OpenStack and would be delighted to hear views from you and others about this suggestion. Your ideas about certification are great but we probably would need to focus on the curriculum first.

One idea that I have had is to explore the possibility of setting up and running a free MOOC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive_open_online_course) similar to https://www.coursera.org/. This would allow us to reach a scalable global audience. Coming from the HE sector I can help with certification and have extensive knowledge of online delivery, that's my day job!
