Free Learning Resources

Table of Contents


Often, Free software advocates find that they can logically translate their beliefs to other naturally abundant resources traditionally restricted by copyright. One of the most important of these is educational materials.

Free information is more widely distributed, thanks to its liberal licensing, and can therefore reach more of its knowledge-hungry audience.

The Free information meta-project is not nearly as far along as Free software, though. Thus, much of the focus right now is on creating Free information. Fortunately, while you need a great deal of software to operate a Free system, you don't need much Free information to learn something without losing your rights.

The Free Software in Education group operates the Free Curriculum project, whose aim is to encourage contributors and collect their contributions if necessary. See the Free Curriculum FAQ to learn more about the project, or the "Free Curriculum letter", an intentionally brief letter to faculty asking for contributions.

Free Learning Projects

While we'd be pleased to collect as much as contributors submit to us, any Free contributions to any group would be welcome. Some other such groups, that support only Free materials, are listed below.
