As the degree of interaction, necessary to provide a fruitful learning experience, depends on the number of participating learners, the scheduled modules will only take place if they reach or surpass a minimum threshold of 10 participants.
The FTA is committed to make all software and educational materials openly available under free licenses, so access and reuse is maximised. The FTA charges tuition fees to cover only the marginal costs of running the courses and tries to keep costs as low as reasonably possible to make participation in its tutored courses accessible to those interested. In case that tuition fees are an unsolvable problem for participation, please suggest a solution through the contact form and we can consider alternatives. For 2012, the tuition fee for a standard 5 ECTS course is defined as EUR 380. Tuition fees will be lowered as the number of enrolments increases. For more details, see the FTA wiki page on bottom-up organisation of courses.
