Success in Education
Friday 19th October 2007

Open Schools Alliance in conjunction with Blue Fountain Ltd and Liverpool John Moores University's International Centre for Digital Content (ICDC) hosted a "Free and Open Source" conference on Friday 19th October 2007.

The conference entitled "Success in Education" was a great success, no doubt attributed by the draw of the key speaker, Martin Dougiamas, Chief Executive of Moodle.

The conference was a showcase for the successful deployments of free and open software solutions in education worldwide with demonstrations of leading software solutions such as Moodle, a free and open source software package designed using sound pedagogical principles to help educators create effective online learning communities.

The conference was well attended with a cross section of people in the education sector including Head Teachers, ICT Co-ordinators, Special Schools, Network Managers, School Governors, Local Authorities, Politicians, Schools and Colleges.
