Online Event - Using Open Source in Education

An online presentation on the benefits of using open-source software in education, within both student-facing and back office systems.

Open-source software is “free” in the sense that one does not pay a license fee to use it, and is often a cost-effective option for providing certain IT services. Although, the open-source virtual learning environment - Moodle - is widely used in this region, decision-makers may not be aware of the wide range of open-source software products available.

In this free online session, Mark Taylor of Sirius IT will talk about areas where open-source software can be used, and discuss the factors that may influence the decision of whether to use open-source or proprietary licensed software.
