Community Funded Courses

Things are a bit different at It’s FOSS Academy. You don’t buy a course just for yourself, you make it happen for everyone else.

You support, we create

At regular intervals, we’ll propose to create a new course or upgrade an existing one by adding videos or translating it in other languages.

The course will have a goal set for community funding. When members like you help achieve the funding goal through donations, we release the course to everyone.

Courses remain free for everyone

Once a course has been released, it remains free for anyone to access and learn from it.

Through the community funding, everyone benefits from it, not just contributing individuals.

Contributing members get recognition

When you donate to a course’s community fund, you get honorable mentions in the course. You may choose to opt out of it and remain anonymous.
