What can I do with GNU/Linux Free/OpenSource software that parallels Tegrity? Have any GNU/Linux educators been able to work with Tegrity? I am attending a workshop on distance learning, and find it difficult to stomach the requirement to use MS Windows or Mac.

Also, what equivalent solutions have been worked up using Free/Open Source software and hardware solutions?

A few possibilities:

Wink, http://www.debugmode.com/wink/ will do screen recording and export as flash; is I think freeware for windows and linux rather than GPL

Audacity, http://audacity.sourceforge.net/, is the way to record audio commentaries, so one can podcast ones lessons, (which as well as e-learning have, in my case at least, potential in the insomnia cures market...)

SmartNotebook allows you to record text written on a (proprietary) interactive whiteboard, this is /not/ GPL, but will run under Linux http://www.smarttech.com/support/software/unix.asp
