This paper describes how Free and Open Source Software can enable the deep learning approach in power system courses. With this aim, the paper describes authors' experience with PSAT for undergraduate and graduate education. Specific examples of undergraduate activities based on PSAT, such as class activities and course projects, are given as illustrations. Experience with graduate PhD level education is also described. Interviews with former students reveal the positive impact that the use of FOSS in general, and PSAT in particular, had on their learning and how it has influenced their professional life.
