<h3>Educational Free Software</h3>

<p>In our <a href="/education/edu-software.html">Educational 
Free Software</a>

<p>This section we present some examples will help you find a variety of how free programs 
are being used by educational institutions around the world and how they
are putting into practice the four freedoms that Free Software grants resources related to 
all users.</p>

<div class="edu-note"><p>
We are looking for 
education, such as: free educational games, or information about study materials, free games 
that can be used programs for 
educational purposes. Contact 
<a href="mailto:education@gnu.org"><education@gnu.org></a>.
</p></div>

<h3>Other Learning Resources</h3>

<p>Free learning resources, like Free Software, is a matter of freedom, 
not price. It's about bringing the principles institutions of Free Software to 
general knowledge and educational materials. Knowledge should be usable 
and accessible to all without restrictions and should not be treated as 
property. It is not an article of consumer goods that decays over time or 
wears out with use like a pair of shoes. Knowledge is a naturally abundant 
resource that improves with usage: the more it is used and passed around, 
the more it grows for the benefit of all. The introduction of measures 
designed to favor the ownership of knowledge, tailored to prevent people 
from accessing, using or sharing knowledge, is a conspiracy to inhibit 
human progress.</p>

<p>These principles on the freedom of knowledge have always been in the 
spirit of the GNU Project. In 1999 it formally introduced the concept of a 
<a href="/encyclopedia/free-encyclopedia.html">Free Universal Encyclopedia 
and Learning Resource</a>, which was fulfilled by the Wikipedia project.</p>

<p>In these pages we want to list learning resources and projects that
follow the principles of the GNU Project. Some of them are levels, educational institutions who that 
offer courses on the philosophical and technical aspects of Free Software.</p>

<dt><a href="http://www.wikipedia.org">Wikipedia</a></dt>

<dd>Written in collaboration by thousands of volunteers from all over 
the world, Wikipedia is nowadays the best example of knowledge made 
available to and usable by anyone without restrictions. Wikipedia readers 
are allowed to copy, use, and adapt the articles, provided that the source 
is mentioned and that eventual derivative works are released under the same 
terms (see <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/copyleft.html">Copyleft</a>).</dd> 

<dt><a href="http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page">Project
Gutenberg</a></dt>

<dd>This project offers general knowledge books free 
software, projects that are develop free as in freedom. 
It publishes plain text digital versions of public-domain works. If you are 
looking programs and platforms for a copy 
education, groups of a classic book, your search should start here.

<p>They have a very clear explanation about people who follow the
<a href="http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenberg:No_Cost_or_Freedom%3f">
difference between free as in price and free as in freedom</a> related to 
printed material.</p>
</dd>

<dt>GNU Project</dt>

<dd>We maintain a list principles of <a href="/doc/other-free-books.html">free books</a> 
mainly related to Free Software documentation, and we make
<a href="/manual/manual.html">GNU manuals</a> available online. All books 
published by the
<a href="http://shop.fsf.org/category/books/">Free Software Foundation</a> 
are free as in freedom.</dd>

<dt><a href="http://ftacademy.org/">Free Technology Academy</a></dt>

<dd>The Free Technology Academy (FTA) is a joint initiative from 
several educational institutions in various countries. It aims to 
contribute to a society that permits all users to study, participate and 
build upon existing knowledge without restrictions. The FTA offers an 
online master level programme with course modules about Free 
Technologies. These courses are taught completely online in a virtual 
campus based on the Campus GNU 
Project interoperability framework.

<p>The FTA is a collaboration between the Free Knowledge Institute, the 
Open University of Catalonia (Spain) and the Open University of the 
Netherlands. A larger group of Associate Partners adds to promote the founding 
base with a network use of organisations that share a common interest in 
offering courses free software in the area educational field, 
and more.</p>
