How have you used Edu4DRR and how can we improve?

We need to know how Edu4DRR is being used by its members!

  • Do you just occasionally browse?
  • Is the curriculum used? What about the Silly Timmy comics?
  • Do you follow @edu4drr on twitter?
  • What would you like to see more of and do YOU have resources you think we should be adding? 

Please answer below and we will see about adding it to make our site grow more useful to our members. We need you help!

Hi Dr. Sharpe,

Congratulations on your PhD! :)

Regarding the ongoing costs, this site has tremendous useful content (mostly by you). But if there's lack of sponsor...

An alternative I'm proposing for hosting is moving the content to GitHub as a GitHub Pages site (i.e. Jekyll format). The intention is that aside from the initial effort, there is no ongoing cost. And it's still possible to get contributors and conversation, by adding people as GitHub collaborators, and by embedding Disqus comments. Or it might become an archive site, it's still so much better than letting it go entirely.

The domain is the easier part. Even if the domain is let go, the subdomain (i.e. edu4drr.github.io) is good enough and is also sufficient for SEO.

Thank you for all your hardwork, Dr.!
