Let me offer an alternative idea. Consider:

- The purpose of this effort is to educate people on DTP generally,
and DTP on Scribus specifically.
- Probably the best way to educate is to demonstrate.
- Most of what people use Scribus for is newsletters.

With that in mind, instead of an online course or a wiki, how about...
a newsletter?

I'm thinking something printer-ready (obviously), on A4 or US Letter,
or maybe both. Maybe 12 pages, every other month.

If there was a "Basics" section and an "Advanced" section, it would
appeal to more people. And, because a newsletter is an ongoing thing,
a little bit of mission creep wouldn't be a bad thing.
