Open Source or OpenSource

Open Source is a model for software that promotes free and universal access to a products design and use.  Open Source resources are usually built through collaboration rather than being the products of an entity such as Microsoft or Apple.  Free access does not necessarily mean that everything about it is free in much the same way as I could give you a car but you cannot use it on the road until you have: a licence, road tax, insurance, petrol/diesel etc.  

Moodle and Mahara are Open Source, things like Adobe PhotoShop, Ableton Live, Microsoft Word, Google Chrome are not.
