OpenupEd – Worldwide Large MOOC Provider for Higher Education
http://www.openuped.eu/

OpenupEd is an open, non-profit partnership offering MOOCs that contribute to open up education – much to the benefit of individual learners and the wider society. The vision is to reach out to all those learners who are interested to take part in online higher education in a way that meets their needs and accommodates their particular situation. OpenupEd is, worldwide, one of the largest MOOC providers for higher education. They consider MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) to be: a) online courses designed for large numbers of participants; b) that can be accessed by anyone anywhere as long as they have an internet connection; c) are open to everyone without entry qualifications; and d) and offer a full/complete course experience online for free. The reasons behind this definition can be found in this separate document. In addition, they see MOOCs as part of open education. This implies ‘openness’ in the sense not only of no financial cost, but also open accessibility, open licensing policy, freedom of place, pace and time of study, open entry, and open pedagogy. Next they see openness as an important business driver, enhancing the circulation of knowledge and increasing the pace of innovation.

Free Software Foundation (FSF)

Free Software Foundation (FSF)
http://www.fsf.org/

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is a nonprofit with a worldwide mission to promote computer user freedom. We defend the rights of all software users. As our society grows more dependent on computers, the software we run is of critical importance to securing the future of a free society. Free software is about having control over the technology we use in our homes, schools and businesses, where computers work for our individual and communal benefit, not for proprietary software companies or governments who might seek to restrict and monitor us. The Free Software Foundation exclusively uses free software to perform its work. The Free Software Foundation is working to secure freedom for computer users by promoting the development and use of free (as in freedom) software and documentation—particularly the GNU operating system—and by campaigning against threats to computer user freedom like Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) and software patents. The FSF maintains historic articles covering free software philosophy and maintains the Free Software Definition—to show clearly what must be true about a particular software program for it to be considered free software. The FSF sponsors the GNU project—the ongoing effort to provide a complete operating system licensed as free software. We also fund and promote important free software development and provide development systems for GNU software maintainers, including full email and shell services and mailing lists. We are committed to furthering the development of the GNU Operating System and enabling volunteers to easily contribute to that work, including sponsoring Savannah the source code repository and center for free software development.
