Dear Colleagues

Open Source software offers so many opportunities. It was a privilege for the African Open Science Platform to also contribute in a small way to this video, working towards encouraging the implementation of open source software globally. Thank you to Jon Tennant and colleagues worldwide for the amazing work with regard to open science, open source, open access and more.

About the video
Introductory video for Module 5 of the Open Science MOOC, on Open Research Software and Open Source. In this module, we will learn about the importance of open source software in modern research. The module will help to equip us the relevant knowledge and tools to transform software into something that can be openly accessed and re-used by others. This video will answer a key question: Why is Open Source Software important for you and your research? To help with this, we have spoken with 6 researchers across the world who use Open Source Software in their daily practices, and can testify to the great impact it can have on their research workflows. Because Open Source is just as much about the people as it is the technology.
