CREATING OPEN EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT BASED ON OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE PROJECTS

Alexander Petrenko, Vladimir Rubanov, Olga Petrenko

Abstract

The paper discusses principles of open education as the main method of effective education style for talented students. It is shown how open-source software development projects can naturally implement these principles for teaching software engineering courses. This is proved by examples of successful open education environments created at the System Programming sub-faculties of the two Russian top-ranked universities - Moscow State University and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Phystech). These sub-faculties are run jointly with the Institute for System Programming of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the leading Russian research & development government organization in the field of software engineering.
