Case Studies

We perform worldwide research to examine cases of private and public educational institutions as well as informal educational environments that have successfully implemented the use of Free Software. We do not attempt to build a comprehensive database here. Instead, we present specific cases of success, in the belief that testimony will be inspiring to anyone considering first time installation or migration to Free Software.

If you know of a case that could be included here, please contact us <> to let us know.
