    Hi Mohammad, I guess you are talking about my FLOSS course? Syllabus here: — For now, it will remain a traditional course, not online. If the revamping works out, I will make my slides publically available under a CC license, but this might take a while.

    Hi Dr. Dirk,
    Great to hear that.
    Is it MOOC ? Which platform did you use to lunch your course (Hope it is an English one)
