... really like how this project helps us to learn at our own pace. We organised an event in our college named SAKEC-ST in which, we offered around 7 FOSS categories and every student took part in 2-3 FOSS workshops. This event was a big hit. Students actually learnt a lot of things which weren't covered in the syllabus and also got a certificate.

Spoken Tutorial is very useful for the students. We conducted tutorials on Java. Most of the students were not interested in programming earlier. When we started the training, it seemed that their interest got increased. As it is an audio-video tutorial, with each step described and its output at each stage, it makes the subject more easy to understand for students.

Jeff King, a Youtube viewer of Spoken Tutorials from Europe

As I had no knowledge about Python I just tried the tutorial of IITB which you gave me. I have to tell you the clarity and detail they explain each topic. We cannot deny that the Internet has many tutorials. But I felt this was the best. I shared this tutorial with my other project members. They just loved it. In the course of time you wouldn’t believe the whole class is using this tutorial. I am really feeling proud to be an Indian and your student. I really understood what open source means.
