I would like to encourage inclusion of metadata analysis in the training. It is amazing what we can do with technology, but the fact that we can work with disorganized data does not mean that it is the best way. The relational model is very powerful, but it does need clarity in the data architecture, and accounting is very powerful as well. However disorganized financial accounting numbers are God's gift to the corrupt.

-------- Forwarded Message -------- From: Saravanan M K <mksarav@...> Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Subject: [blug-non-tech] NRCFOSS need your suggestion to design Electives for CS in FOSS Date: Fri, 6 May 2005 17:49:24 +0800
The National Resource Centre for Free/Open Source Software (NRC-FOSS) which has been established at MIT campus of Anna University, is going to conduct training for 100 teachers, from 50 different engineering colleges in Tamilnadu (2 per college) to provide two elective courses for Computer Science students in the area of FOSS. The training will help the teachers to handle the elective courses in their respective colleges. The first batch of 100 teachers, training is planned some time in June 2005.
I would like to hear from the FOSS community members what are the things that you want to include in the elective courses (to CS students in the 3rd year). Remember we have only 45 hours per elective. Thus we can't include each and every possible topics in FOSS.
I will collect all your suggestions and pass it to the respective authorities at NRCFOSS. It is time for us to react and provide constructive feedback to design a proper elective course for CS/IT students to spread FOSS in India.
Let us brain storm the topics first and then come up with a time slot for each topic to fit in 45 hours for each elective.
Note: I am not an employee of NRCFOSS and simply doing it voluntarily inorder to provide them the feedback as a member of FOSS community to device some good syllabus for the FOSS electives.
