We had a great experience at the SLC Camp in Chicago last weekend.  There were quite a few familiar friends from around Chicago and a really nice mix of people interested in education and innovation.  We mostly participated in the developer sessions and learned a lot from the SLC development team.  Our next step is to get more actively involved in the SLC community by adding support for the SLC into ForAllSchools.  We’re especially excited about the potential of the SLC technology in conjunction with Mozilla Open Badges.
