2015 (English)In: Edulearn15: 7th International Conference on Education and New Learning Technologies, IATED-INT ASSOC TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION A& DEVELOPMENT, , 2015, 318-328 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper describes the potential and challenges of open-source non-commercial software tools for undergraduate electric energy systems programmes, and their impact on student’s potential work opportunities. This paper also describes how different academic traditions have an impact on the choice of educational software, and how that has repercussions on the students' learning and the learning outcomes of programme modules. The matter presented in the paper is based on the authors' experience as both developers of open-source software tools, as PhD students and lecturers with several universities.
