Joining in digital freedom

The schul-frei project is a hub for free software in education. That means that several organizations and single persons are involved in the project. Everyone who shares the goals of the project and wants to work on our ideas, procedures, materials and standards is welcome.

Even a passive participation for example through only reading and asking questions is desirable.

Open chatroom

Each person who pursues or engages to the project, can read and write in the open chatroom. So you will stay well informed about topical plans and developments and can take part in idea development or even take on specific tasks. The chat room can be reached in different ways — a bridge between several plattforms allows to join independend of your chosen technology. The easiest way to participate is using the Element webchat. It is useful for a short visit.


With the open and secure messaging network Matrix the chatroom can be joined with

XMPP (Jabber)

Telegram users can join the @schulfrei chatroom. We do not recommend Telegram, because it is not a free service.


The internet relay chat is the oldest but still active chat standard which is used in software development. Our IRC channel is #schul-frei in the freenode network.

Freenode is also available as webchat.

Source Code

The schul-frei project and all components are public developed on a gitrepository. Sources from the integrated, materials, the website and more can be found in our repository on edugit.

All solutions from the schul-frei canon are publicly developed, too.
