WARNING! Starting on July 30th, 2015, we have started to rebuild from scratch the whole website of the Free Technology Academy, to make it much easier to maintain and use than it was before. We haven't finished yet! Apart from looks and layout, which may change several times before settling down, it IS very likely that there are broken links here and there, or URLs that will stop work in a few days. Please be patient and if you spot any problem, let us know (contact@ftacademy.org)

Almost all FTA textbooks are back online

The rebuilding of the whole Free Technology Academy continues. Slowly, but surely.

Today, we are pleased to announce that our Modules page now has all working links to the pages of all our courses, and that almost all those pages include a working link to the corresponding FTA textbook. Practical information about all the FTA courses instead, that is calendars, fees, enrolment procedures and so on, continues to stay in the main Courses page.

As far as the textbooks are concerned:

New Open Network Technologies textbook is online. Which other ones you want?

We are pleased to announce that, following the "recovery" of our Gnu/Linux textbooks last week, we now have online also the NEW EDITION of the official textbook for our course on Open Network Technologies. Both this course on Open Networks and the two ones on Gnu/Linux (Basic and Advanced) will run a new session starting September 28th, 2015.

Online course on Copyright, and its impacts on art, entertainment and industry

we received, and gladly forward here, news of an interesting course: CopyrightX is an online course, offered by HarvardX, Harvard Law School, and the Berkman Center. The course explores the current law of copyright; the impact of that law on art, entertainment, and industry; and the ongoing debates concerning how the law should be reformed.
