Submission + - How the Open Source Movement Is Changing Education

ftblguy writes: "MIT's Open CourseWare program provides a great example of how the open source movement is rapidly changing education. The Online Education Database also lists Project Gutenberg, Wikipedia, Linux, Firefox, and Google as some of the other open source in education success stories. Open source and open access resources have changed how colleges, organizations, instructors, and prospective students use software, operating systems and online documents for educational purposes. And, in most cases, each success story also has served as a springboard to create more open source projects."
