MU Opens Up: Free/Libre and Open-Source Software (FLOSS)
From Oliver Dreon on March 10th, 2018
Media, comments, and other contributions in MU Video are made in accordance with University policies including Academic Honesty Policy (PDF) and Responsible Use of Information Technology Resources (PDF).
We use the computer for a range of activities, from browsing the Internet and preparing documents to scientific computing and manipulating images and audio. Many of these activities can be accomplished using software that is both free to download and free to modify and distribute. In this webinar, I will show how to find FLOSS alternatives to proprietary software and give examples of various tasks and the FLOSS alternatives that can be used to complete these tasks.
