LAMP Consortium joins Apereo Foundation to grow support for open source in .edu

The LAMP consortium, a community of eighteen colleges, have announced their membership of the Apereo Foundation, the leading non-profit entity supporting the development and adoption of open source software in education.

“Apereo and LAMP share a common objective of supporting and sustaining cost-effective innovation in higher education with open source software” said Ian Dolphin, Executive Director of the Apereo Foundation, “it makes profoundly good sense to work together where we can. LAMP has demonstrated the benefit of open source software for smaller institutions. That’s a model we believe we can expand”.
