The article shows how to use free software library OpenCV as a main software tool for Computer Vision courses at secondary schools and universities. Sample lectures of Computer Vision are covered with respect to how to demonstrate algorithms' behavior using OpenCV. Comparison of OpenCV with alternative software tool MATLAB is presented. Working C# code samples are part of the article.
