Science, Education and Learning in Freedom

The SELF Platform aims to be the central platform with high quality educational and training materials about Free Software and Open Standards. It is based on world-class Free Software technologies that permit both reading and publishing free materials, and is driven by a worldwide community. The SELF Platform has two main functions. It is simultaneously a knowledge base and a collaborative production facility: On the one hand, it provides information, educational and training materials that can be presented in different languages and forms: from course texts, presentations, e-learning programmes and platforms to tutor software, e-books, instructional and educational videos and manuals. On the other hand, it offers a platform for the evaluation, adaptation, creation and translation of these materials. The production process of such materials is based on the organisational model of Wikipedia.
