I would be happy to help populate a wiki page on campus mapping. I can post the slides I use for my advanced GIS course to the web for your reference.

I teach a Web Mapping class at a University and have been thinking of having a lesson on crowd sourcing and geowiki stuff.  I figure it might be a good way to introduce students to OpenStreetmap.  Is anyone aware of class lessons or exercises that have been developed for OpenStreetmap?

It would be cool to create a wiki page with ideas, resources, tips, and tricks for campus mapping.  The page could include links to past efforts.

Hi Stefan,
I did some work with students back when I was with cloudmade. There
are a few details here:?http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Education
I can pass along the power points I made if you like (although they
are about a year out of date now). Just let me know. If anyone else
wants them, I can also try and get them up on the wiki, or am happy
for someone else to host them.
Cheers,
Sarah

?Hi. The following may be outside your time and interest scope, but I
am interested in hearing from anybody who is willing to nibble on my
requests. I have never actually done any mapping work, but joined
this list and lurked with the hope of starting to learn about the
tools and issues.

I teach computer science at a university about half way between
Indianapolis and Ft. Wayne. I would love to have someone show us how
to get involved mapping precise data locally and submitting it to
various online data sets, or working on software that is helpful to
OSM and others. We have students who need senior projects, and also
run the occasional special topics class.

If anybody is interested, I would like to start a dialog, or at least
get some pointers to the right direction.
