Free Technology Academy 2012 courses

by Matt Lee Contributions Published on Mar 12, 2012 04:33 PM
The FTA is a global community and network of academic and social organizations active in the fields of Free Software, Standards and Hardware. It is currently hosted by the Free Knowledge Institute (FKI) after its foundation in 2008 by the FKI, Open Universiteit Nederland, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya and Universitet i Agder.

The Free Technology Academy expects to run two course modules for users and systems administrators who want to get started with GNU/Linux systems. A discount on Free Technology Academy courses is available for FSF associate members.

  • Basic GNU/Linux — this module covers the basics of the Free Software philosophy while teaching you how to use and modify GNU/Linux to suit your needs and how to find your way in this new world.
  • GNU/Linux — this module focuses on the administration of GNU/Linux systems. Participants will learn how to install, configure and optimise a GNU/Linux operating system and the most common services.

All FTA courses are completed online, and work with free software systems. Find out more on these courses and how to enroll.
