General Talk

Tom Worthington: Learning to lower costs and carbon emissions with ICT

Tom designed the first globally accredited course on Green ICT and 
has been teaching it via the web since January 2009. The talk will 
discuss how ICT can be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 15% by 
2020. Also outlined is how to use the web for running formal, 
university accredited courses using free open source software with 
open access content delivered to smartphones. The Istanbul public 
transport system also gets a mention. ;-)

See Tom's Web site for more information: 

Tom runs green IT courses at ANU and ACS. You can read the free open 
access version.
