AbstractAs a relatively young discipline within software engineering, value-based software engineering does not yet have an established curriculum. The area draws on models and techniques in so many other disciplines that it is likely to be some time before a single individual is ready to prepare a course or a textbook. Several of the EDSER-4 participants expressed interest and enthusiasm for sharing the effort of developing curriculum and course materials. Inspired by the success of open source software development, especially the distributed collaboration, the free public access to the results, and the lack of administrative overhead; we decided to try to establish a similar community for curriculum development. This report describes progress to date, with emphasis on the community standards for cooperation and sharing.
