I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to read about fellow UP Manila
students involved in such a noble project. Like you, I'm a BS Computer
Science major from UP Manila. I'm older, though: my student number
starts with 1998, and I'm hoping to complete my thesis and finally
graduate this academic year.

You may want to approach Prof. Ariel Betan and Eric Pareja of the
Information Management Services (IMS) office. They're both Free Software
advocates like myself, and you may be able to collaborate on some
projects and maybe get some courseware from them that you can use. You
can also email Eric Pareja at xenos@???.

Cheers, and best wishes.
