TeachingOpenSource.org was set up in March 2009 to serve as a neutral collaboration point for everyone involved in Teaching Open Source, where we can:

  • Work out Open Source educational models, support and funding schemes, community relationships, and other issues.
  • Advocate for the changes that are necessary to further the goal of teaching Open Source.

The initial collaboration points were this wiki, the Planet, and the TeachingOpenSource Mailing List; these have been extended with the #teachingopensource IRC channel and a monthly conference call.

TeachingOpenSource.org is specifically not an initiative of any one Open Source project, community, company, or institution, to remove as many barriers to collaboration as possible.

TeachingOpenSource.org is based upon and indebted to several prior initiatives and is based around the discussion which took place at FSOSS 2008.
