Freeware and Open Source Staff Recommendations


Freeware and open source software have taken an ever increasing roll in education over the past decade largely owing to the greater sense of community emerging on the Internet and the growing centrality technology is playing in educational practice and goals. Gathered here is a small sampling that our staff at the TLC recommends as both alternatives to proprietary solutions and a means of enhancing your productivity in ways you might not have been aware were possible, especially from free software. While by no mean comprehensive, these are a great way to get some exposure to the advantages of an online community of users and development.
