In the month of February, 2014, we started to conduct FOSS(Free Open Source Software) courses from IIT Bombay Spoken Tutorial. We started the courses in Computer science and Engineering Department namely C, CPP, Java, Python and PHP MySQL. We have provided separate time slots to learn those courses. Once the first batch of students learnt C, CPP they appeared for the on-line exam and received certificates from IIT Bombay. The courses started gaining momentum. We started more batches and more students got benefited of all different Courses like Perl, LibreOffice Suite, LATex, GIMP, Advanced C++, Netbeans etc.
The great support from the Spoken Tutorial team, IIT Bombay Spoken Tutorial made us continue our journey in FOSS. The FOSS movement steadily attracted the interests of all and more students started to learn the courses in batches and more than 300 students got certified in different courses.
IIT Bombay has granted us the status of Resource and Nodal Center for Spoken tutorial Program in the year 2014 as we showed remarkable progress in FOSS. Now we have been appreciated and recognized by IIT Bombay Spoken Tutorial Center. As a result of all these efforts leading to a commendable progress we have extended FOSS to Electronics and Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering departments also. We have extended our support to all other JNTUA Anantapuramu affiliated colleges as a Resource Center.
