The University of Costumed Heroes: A video from the FSF
This video is the second in a series of animated videos created by the Free Software Foundation's (FSF), and this one is themed around our campaign against the use of proprietary remote education software.
We must reverse the trend of forsaking young people's freedom, which has been accelerating as corporations try to capitalize on the need to establish new remote education practices. Free software not only protects the freedoms of your child or grandchild by allowing people to study the source code for any malicious functionalities, it also communicates important values like autonomy, sharing, social responsibility, and collaboration.
Support our work
To further help us bring attention to, and start a conversation with, institutions that are endangering students' futures and jeopardizing their education by relying on proprietary software , please show your support for free software in education and this video by promoting it.
