Free Access to Technology for International Online Engineering EducationOpen source technology and its accessibility play a vital role in a cost-effective androbustly accessible online engineering education. This role becomes even more vital indeveloping countries where there are much engineering education demand and where thesupply of accessible technology may be cost prohibitive and not as accessible. Thispaper encapsulates some of the freely accessible state-of-the-art open source technologyand their applications for international online engineering education and addresses somekey features of the current technology. Open source technology is not very usefulwithout the appropriate tools. Thus, discussions also include some open source tools tofacilitate the access and the cost-effectiveness.
