Abstract

Abstract: Current changes in global markets have had a great impact on the rise of already popular free and open source software (FOSS). The effect of this shift is immediate on the e-learning environments, as K-12 schools and universities turned their attention to cost-saving strategies. This paper discusses current and future trends in the use of FOSS for e-learning.
