2. Objective 
      There are around 2 billion Internet users in Asia Pacific out of 4 billion globally today.  There are around 5,000 ~ 10,000 Internet governance practitioners 
      in Asia Pacific who participate to global, regional and national IGFs/SIGs and related organizations.  There are 500 ~ 1,000 Internet governance 
      leaders and experts including organizers and speakers in these IGFs/SIGs and related organizations. These leaders and experts are working on some of the
      following areas;
        - Organizations on Internet governance
        - Publications and presentations
        - Projects on Internet governance
     
      Asia Pacific School on Internet Governance (APSIG) intends to serve these 500~1,000 Internet governance leaders and experts in Asia through professional 
      courses on the Internet governance and other programs. We expect  local and other SIGs and IGFs to serve the 5,00 ~10,000 Internet governance practitioners 
      through their courses. 

3.  Scope
       - Develop open courseware on the Internet governance
       - Archive video recording of lectures, presentation materials and other documents for public access
       - Offer professional courses on the Internet governance,
