To deal with budgetary constraints,
school systems around the world have already begun to use free, open
source educational software. The top priority of this site is to show
everyone in education, business, and government - particularly individual students
- how to find & use all sorts of free existing & emerging
technologies, especially a wide array of free, yet professional-grade
software and online resources (essentially providing a free education via Internet access)
Every one can do something to help promote
free education - even if it is just spreading the word about free
educational resources on the Internet. You may feel more compelled to
make even greater contributions once you see the commitments many
benevolent programmers have made to the Open Source movement
(i.e.-making the source code available at no cost) throughout the links
on this website. (See Help Cause in the upper left sidebar) - Thank you
for visiting this site.
