tuXlabs Presentation
tuXlabs is an ICT model aligned to the South African E-Education Whitepaper. A tuXlab is implemented through a 7 step project management cycle that aims to maintain sustainability in the project. The vision of the project is to develop an easy replicable solution for schools which can be extended into other community development programs.
tuXlabs is build around the open source philosophy of freedom to share, freedom to use, freedom to replicate, freedom to distribute. A tuXlab network runs completely on open source software which offers many benefits technically but its major component is ownership. The use of open content is also well entrenched into the tuXlab network.
