Free and Open Education: FLOSSCom Virtual & On-Campus Summer University
Place: Virtual & On-Campus (see website), Date: 2007-07-03 - 2007-09-30
The European Union funded FLOSSCom research project is investigating Free / Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) communities as learning environments. The project aims to identify principles of FLOSS communities that could be transferred to educational settings, e.g. how the community model could help to improve education. The project will run a ‘Virtual and On-Campus Summer University’ starting at the 3rd of July. The Summer University is a 12 week open access session with the objective of developing a toolkit on ‘Learning the Open Source Way’ The summer university will be conducted as a joint event bringing in as a “special guest” the Ubuntu community – The world’s famous Linux distribution with a community of 320.000 enthusiasts! We especially encourage students to take the chance and engage with experts throughout the globe. We ask everyone to feel free to bring in their knowledge, thoughts and energy, without any fees or enrolment criteria. The invitation is open to learners who have no, little or a great deal of experience with FLOSS communities.

PerU 2007
Mit dem rasanten Entwicklungsfortschritt hochmobiler Netzwerktechnologien und Geräte eröffnen sich neuartige Perspektiven für verschiedenste Anwendungsgebiete. Zukünftige Interaktionsformen werden neben klassischen Arbeitsplatzrechnern und Notebooks auch andere Infrastrukturen umfassen. In Verbindung mit dem durch proaktive, kontextorientierte Dienste erzielbaren Mehrwert tritt die Technik in den Hintergrund zurück und unterstützt zugleich den Nutzer auf vielfältige Weise durch mehr Komfort und Transparenz in seinen täglichen Handlungen. Pervasive Computing ist eine wichtige Schlüsseltechnologie, die Aus- und Weiterbildungseinrichtungen nicht nur im akademischen Umfeld optimieren und modernisieren wird. Eine Pervasive University stellt somit die konsequente Weiterentwicklung des Konzepts der Notebook University dar.
