MVU to offer free courses in Linux OS Principles

Filed under
Linux

The University of Malta has launched the Mediterranean Virtual University (MVU), a European Union Euro-Mediterranean Information Society (EUMEDIS)-funded initiative which brings together 11 universities and institutions from across Europe and the Mediterranean region to provide high-quality online courses employing cutting-edge pedagogy and e-learning techniques all within the framework of a collaborative effort and administrative centralisation.

In a world where effective and relevant education is increasingly important but at the same time not equally accessible, students from different countries can benefit from the expertise of each MVU partner Institution and follow appealing online courses without commute or relocation effort, at their own pace.

Although MVU will eventually offer degree courses in a number of areas, during its initial piloting phase, only Computer Science and some IT-related courses are being offered. A number of courses have already been developed and are entering their evaluation phase. The UoM is currently evaluating two pilot courses: LINUX Operating Systems Principles and Computer Integrated Manufacturing. Participation in pilot courses is free of charge and students also have the option of participating in courses offered by any other MVU partner Institution.

too late?

I think it might be too late this semester. They were having an orientation on October 28 and all those not in attendance were considered no longer interested.

But, physical correspondence should be
addressed to:
Mediterranean Virtual University Malta Office,
Room 202b,
Computing Building,
University of Malta,
Malta (Europe).

Electronic mail queries on administrative MVU issues and other
communication can be addressed to
