Next Thursday, march 11th, I will be at Expoelearning Europe 2004. The Congress is three days long (10th to 12th) but as two colleagues are speaking one on Wednesday and another one on Friday, I’ll only attend Thursday’s sessions, all of them a monographic about e-Learning and Free Software.
Here’s a little table of contents of these sessions:
- Concepts and processes of Free Software in Education, by Carlos Moreno
- Proprietary Software vs. Free Software, by Antonio Calvo
- Free Software breaks the barrier through e-Learning, by Albert Calvet
- Scalability and high disposal of e-Learning solutions, by Pablo de la Red Blanco
- Comparisons and Criteria when choosing different Free Software solutions, by Fernando A. Acero MartÃn
- Claroline: experience of the Rey Juan Carlos I University, by Gregorio Robles
- Moodle: another experience, by Eneko Arriaga
Full programme here.
I am really interested in Free Software e-Learning solutions, as I think it is a good option for non-profits to run e-Learning platforms at a reasonable cost and be able to implement e-Learning programmes for underdeveloped countries or for their own organization.
There’re other solutions, of course, as you can see, for example, in my previous post ;)
BTW, feel free to contact me if you think we could meet there :)
