As part of the SELF Project, a beta version of the SELF Platform is released alongwith the submission of the SELF Platform Documentation. HBCSE’s team is the main partner involved in the development of the SELF Platform. Soon the SELF Partners will be generating content using the SELF Platform. Initially, the partners have already created content using the Atutor application. This content will be imported in the SELF Platform and will be further used to build courses on free software.
