1. Culture and knowledge for classless societies is networked in process! 

Networked Labour University is designed as an educational module to be integrated with a broader network composed of Global Networked Labour Union, Networked Labour Research unit, and networked labour coop GNLU. Tied to a greater ecology of universal, free and open access community projects, such as Faircoop, the Earth Cooperative, all our projects aim mutual empowerment at the bottom level. Unconditional empowerment of the dis-empowered, excluded, and oppressed with direct solidarity is the reason why we exist for. Our platform is designed to liberate knowledge from alienation and domination of any kind at the point of production and distribution. In order to enable money-free access to most essential cultural resources we rely on free/libre, open source software, but the platform also aims to facilitate broader solidarity economy by encouraging and enabling open-cooperative exchanges between participants.

Our invitation is an wide open one, anyone can join and contribute by offering and taking courses, moderating circles or skill shares, helping out with web design, platform development, promotion, or any other way!

4. System development, communication, and solidarity

Our online system is developed on the way! 

We are building our platform while we are walking. Networked Labour University’s online campus and classes are made of free, libre, and open source computer programs, mainly Moodle (Moodle.org) and Big Blue Button (bigbluebutton.org) and related plug-ins. You don’t have to download or install any software into your computer or mobile device in order to access classes, to communicate and network with fellow participants or course coordinators, to follow courses and use our free library, or any other collaborative tools such as Wikis and pads, only thing you will need is your mobile device or computer and a good Internet connection. Since all these functions work on any Internet browser. Both developers of Moodle and Big Blue Button, and users have been making useful and accessible guides and tutorials to explain how to navigate and use these platforms, users will soon have a categorised and more simplified space where most necessary of those guides will be provided at the e-campus of NLU. Besides for urgent problems or needs it is always possible and encouraged to communicate and ask information from the moderation team or by emailing us (at networg@networg.nl)

Support us in globally networking solidarity!  
Our invitation is an wide open one, anyone can join and contribute by offering and taking courses, moderating circles or skill shares, helping out with web design, platform development, promotion, or any other way!
