about me

I am an English and IT teacher trainee (MA programme) at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. I have been using Ubuntu for 4 years and I am an active member of the Hungarian LoCo. As a would-be teacher, I would like to promote the use of free software in education, thus I am responsible for the development of the Hungarian LoCo's e-learning materials.


Her tremendous work on the e-learning project is invaluable. Who will teach Hungary to use Ubuntu? I'm sure she will! -- kelemeng 2010-10-24 10:04:32
