AbstractOpen Source Software (OSS) is of increasing interest in education. It can provide better quality software, increased pedagogic choice, enhanced flexibility and new business and social models. Furthermore, the idea of Open Source is being extended into other areas including the production of e-learning materials. This conference on Open Source for education in Europe – Research and Practice has been organised by two European eLearning Initiative sponsored projects, SIGOSSEE and JOIN, which have been investigating the potential of Open Source and providing services for educational institutions wishing to implement Open Source products, together with the Open University of the Netherlands (OUNL) which has a long track record of innovation in e-learning.
This work has been carried out with the support of the European Commission. This work has been sponsored by ISN.
