This is the courseware repository of the Free Courseware project at UWC


UWC has a long history of supporting the use, development and diffusion of free/open source software and educational resources. In 2005 UWC's Senate passed an ambitious Free Content, Free/Open Courseware Policy, which removed institutional obstacles to publication of open educational resources. The Free Courseware project is part of a broader move towards implementation of this strategy.

The project is driven by a small and motivated team. Click here for more information.
