The University of Costumed Heroes is an animated video telling
the story of a group of heroes falling prey to the powers of
proprietary software in education. The university board acquires
cutting-edge remote learning software that enables them to
continue their operations online, but — [SPOILER ALERT] — it may
sow the seeds of their downfall.

This video is the second in a series of animated videos
created by the Free Software Foundation’s (FSF), and this one is
themed around our campaign against the use of proprietary remote
education software
.

We must reverse the trend of forsaking
young people’s freedom, which has been accelerating as
corporations try to capitalize on the need to establish new
remote education practices. Free software not only protects the
freedoms of your child or grandchild by allowing people to study
the source code for any malicious functionalities, it also
communicates important values like autonomy, sharing, social responsibility, and collaboration.
