Open source is a transformative way that harnesses the power of peer review and transparency of process to develop and make assets freely accessible. Today, open source is increasingly recognised in education institutions as a viable technology solution that provides superior value at a fraction of the cost of proprietary applications. However, that is not what it can only do.

Please join the President & CEO of Red Hat Inc., Mr Jim Whitehurst, as he shares how open source, with its collaborative nature and community-backed effort, can be a transformative force in driving education innovation - from enhancing student learning experiences to nurturing strong collaborative hands-on learning skills for students to prepare them into the working world.
