Synthèse de l’enseignement européen en ligne ouvert à tous.



This paper summarises the actions that European Schoolnet and its members have taken in the area of open content and free and open source (FOSS) development in the field of e-learning.

European Schoolnet provides insight into the educational use of information and communications technology (ICT) in Europe for policy-makers and education professionals. This goal is achieved through communication and information exchange at all levels of school education using innovative technologies, and by acting as a gateway to national and regional school networks. In the recent years European Schoolnet and some of its member networks have, little by little, started trending towards awareness building, piloting and the rolling-out of open source software programmes for schools, as well as investigating possibilities in the area of open content.

Advances have been made in all the areas from analysing and visibility studies to the development of educational software based on open source.
