About this project

Free Open and Source Software (FOSS)

The Spoken Tutorial project is the initiative of the ‘Talk to a Teacher’ activity of the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (ICT), launched by the Ministry of Human Resources and Development, Government of India. The use of spoken tutorials to popularize software development and its use will be coordinated through this website. (The Spoken Tutorial project is being developed by IIT Bombay for MHRD, Government of India).

Our Objectives

It is well known that seeing and hearing someone explain a process greatly improves understanding. On this site, you will find a variety of spoken tutorials that will help you to learn and use open source software.

Since this is a community based site, we welcome your contributions. Have a topic, script or video for a spoken tutorial? Upload them on our site. We are also promoting translations of these tutorials into different languages. Once your tutorials are reviewed by experts, they will be hosted on our site and will become part of the public domain, thus benefitting all who are interested in it.

We also conduct software training workshops using spoken tutorials and give certificates to those who pass an online test. For more details, please write to contact [at] spoken-tutorial [dot] org.
