Italy’s Ministry of Defence is sharing the eLearning course that it developed together with LibreItalia, the Italian promoters of LibreOffice. The course is made available via the LibreItalia website, and the source material is available on GitHub. The Ministry hopes that making it available will inspire others to modify and reuse the LibreOffice course.
The Italian Ministry of Defence started migrating to the LibreOffice suite of office productivity tools in 2016. The ministry expects that this will help save from EUR 26 million to EUR 29 million over the coming years. The ministry’s LibreDifesa project will migrate all of the Italian military’s well over 100,000 desktop PCs to LibreOffice, the largest public sector implementation in Europe.
The availability of the eLearning material was announced by Sonia Montegiove, president of LibreItalia and a software analyst working for the province of Perugia. Writing on she quoted Italian General Camillo Sileo, LibreDifesa project manager: “We hope that other public administrations and schools can use the course, and perhaps extend and improve the material.”
The course material, in HTML5, and including video’s and presentations, is available on GitHub.
