Abstract

The Open Sources Education (OSE) is both an idea and a platform which entirely originates from Poland and is an unique method of succoring the didactic process by a network of academic Virtual Education Centers (VEC) using the Internet. The OSE is an initiative which has arisen while applying the e-learning techniques on daytime, evening and extramural studies of the Management and Marketing course at Faculty of Production Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology. The OSE, with the aid of Internet, can support the didactic process: the traditional course mode classes and the real time led teamwork classes. The article presents: the Open Sources Education idea, institutions, universities and platforms involved in e-learning, eStudent platform, VEC network, VEC development perspectives, VEC users’ instructions and some license restrictions.
