This Open Society initiative was set up to conduct research into the impact of privatisation in education around the world. The website was required to help with the important task of generating interest in the research and its findings. With a number of international consultations scheduled within weeks of the website commission, we had to work fast to get the site into shape for its initial outing. We worked on a modest scope for this first phase of the project - developing a tool for people to register their interest and location so that the user community could be mapped at a later stage, as well as a video embedding tool.
