Freeware or Free Software

In the world or education, a multitude of software and applications are available free of charge, from free, public or non-proprietary domains. In agreement with the Association pour le développement technologique en éducation ADTE (the Association for Technological Development in Education), the Freeware team is working to promote freeware, or free software, to colleges, associations and organizations by providing (among other things) access to a database and a slideshow on the added value using these resources.

This collaboration also results by accessing, through the ICTProfile.ca Webspace, to freeware or free software according to the ICT Profile for College Students skills. This great indexation work is done by the ADTE. The ADTE and the Réseau REPTIC / IT Rep Network also plan to offer an argumentation that presents the benefits and drawbacks of appealing to freeware in teaching and learning. To be continued !
