Open source education is a way to get students from around the world the same kind of education that a student at MIT or Oxford gets. Many students around the world are left with bad education and no source of text books to refer to. Most of the time the text books are so costly that a college student is unable to afford them. Because of this exceptional student loose the opportunity to excel and fall behind other less intelligent students who can afford costly educational resources. The Open Source Education initiative is an innovative new experiment that aims to promote education around the world free of cost. It is currently helping students, decision makers and education developers to realize the importance of this freely available tool. By collaborating with universities around the world the open source initiative is bringing a wide range of freely available educational resources to the students. Using open source software and development communities that work to bring academic institutions, companies and governments together to make this happen. It regularly organizes conferences around the world to welcome more open source collaborations.
Modern teaching technologies are made available through open source software to increase the involvement of students and teachers in the class. Only educational practices which have worked are being used to spread the open source initiative around the world. It is actively developing such tools and is responsible for arranging the courses and online educational conference and seminars that promote the open source education incentives like the software, communities and licensing. Many developing countries are being involved in this open source web and has had many advantages so far in the improvements of teaching standards around the world where students are eager to learn but they are only left back because of the unavailability of the resources.
