[school-discuss] List of Free Software programs for education by OSS watch UK
I just got pointed to this and thought you might find this as
interesting as I do since schoolforge collects the same kind of information:
A list to help schools find open source alternatives to
proprietary software applications was published earlier this
week by OSS Watch, a service for higher and further education
institutions in the UK. Introducing the list, OSS Watch
development manager Mark Johnson says: "Where possible, weâve
included real-world examples of their usage."
The list is divided in seven education areas, such as
E-Learning, Assessment and Classroom Tools. In the E-Learning
section, for example, it lists Moodle, Sakai and Canvas as
open source alternatives. "The Manchester Metropolitan
University selected Moodle after an extensive review", OSS
Watch adds, adding a link to a 2010 report by the university.
