Free online tech courses aimed at 4IR launched for unemployed South Africans - closes 31 Oct 2020


The National Electronic Media Institute of South Africa (NEMISA), the Department of Communications and Digital Technologies (DCDT), and Coursera have partnered to bring online-based learning to unemployed youth.

The project, which will provide 50,000 youth with digital skills for free, is targeted at providing these South Africans with “skills needed for the 4th industrial revolution.” The DCDT explained that the platform offers about 3,000 courses from which students will be able to choose, including skills such as data science, coding, app development, digital marketing, and AI.

Researchers in Ireland start open source programme offices: "rising awareness of the need to return more value to the public from publicly funded research"


The Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Software (Lero), headquartered in Limerick, and Trinity College Dublin have both started open source programme offices this month, to increase their involvement with open source.

It is well-known that use of open source drives innovation (through sharing and re-use of ideas), drives down costs (through re-use and no need to pay annual license fees), and is accessible to all. In many cases public funds are used in government departments and public entities for software development, and these outputs really should be open sourced for the public good.

Teach school remotely with the Moodle learning management system on Linux - As it's FOSS also ideal to freely create content for re-sharing


The pandemic has created a greater need for remote education than ever before. This makes a learning management system (LMS) like Moodle more important than ever for ensuring that education stays on track as more and more schooling is delivered virtually. Moodle is a free LMS written in PHP and distributed under the open source GNU Public License (GPL).

I've seen Moodle in use at a few places in South Africa including an offering by the Western Cape Government intended to equip citizens for various types of trade and business where it helps guide what curriculum can be explored. As its open source not only can it be modified for use, more universities and other institutions can freely develop content for all sorts of generic courses and purposes which can be re-used across all Moodle platforms eg. Covid-19 awareness. I like too that Moodle takes care of testing and scoring so that knowledge can be tested after the courses are completed.

There was this time before the #Internet, where we thought that the cause of collective #stupidity was the lack of access to #information.


Now we know it better.

It’s like the difference between #civilization and #culture.

Civilization is to have bathrooms. Culture is if you use it correctly.

The platform is available on both desktop and mobile devices and makes it easy for learners to access the organisation’s CodeJIKA programme.

CodeJIKA was launched in 2017 and has reached over 250 schools, 26,500 learners, and 1,520 teachers.

It teaches foundational coding, web development, and computer science skills and is designed primarily for under-resourced, offline, and mobile-oriented schools and communities.

Glad to see it uses freely available web technologies and editors so really no cost to get going. It's also not dependent on some corporate lock-in.
