Hi at all!!!

In this week have passed a great new for URJC (my university) and Libresoft, the research group that organizes my M.Sc. in Free/Libre Software.

The FTA (Free Technology Achademy):

Is a consortium formed by the Open University of Catalonia (Spain), the Open University of the Netherlands and the University of Agder (Norway) and led by the Free Knowledge Institute (FKI), the FTA has received the support from the EC’s Lifelong Learning Programme to set up an international educational programme on Free Software. The courses are taught completely online in a virtual campus based on the Campus Project interoperability framework.

Following the Open Educational Resources movement, all learning materials are freely available through the Internet. The use of Free Software (also referred to as Open Source software or Libre Software) is rapidly expanding in governmental and private organisations. However, still only a limited number of ICT professionals, teachers and decision makers have sufficient knowledge and expertise in these new fields. The Free Technology Academy aims to address this gap by providing high level courses that fit into larger Master Programmes at the participating universities.

 

Now, in the consortium will be an another member, URJC!!! this is good news for  libre software as well as the FTA and its members are cooperate to design a common curriculum for a International M.Sc. Programme in Free Software, and for work together in other areas like research between the FTA members.

The original announce is here.

See u my friends!!
