Start Learning Linux for FREE

For years, you have learned from numerous tutorials on It’s FOSS. It’s FOSS Academy streamlines the learning by organizing the education materials in course format.
The courses are designed for the desktop Linux users and funded by the community.

You can enroll in these available courses and start improving your Linux knowledge. All your progress is saved and you can resume your learning from where you left the last time.

Support the Upcoming Course: Manjaro Musings
Our next planned course is for Manjaro beginners. The course will contain introduction to Manjaro and Arch, various procedure for installing Manjaro and then chapters on using Manjaro effectively with tips on package management, maintaining the system and customizing it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
