Fedora Education

Summary

This spin is being designed for mainly educational and scientific purposes and therefore contains a special selections of applications related to these topics.

Owner(s)

Detailed Description

Being targeted at students and pupils (but also teachers), this spin is focussed on providing a well-selected collection of useful applications for educational purposes. The users will be able to use a XFCE desktop, which comes along with the KDE Education Suite and further applications, including office and graphic tools. On the other hand, the Sugar Desktop Environment, which has originally been used by the OLPC, but is now directly available in Fedora, will also be available.

Benefit to Fedora

This effort helps to increase Fedora's visibility in the educational sector (among the already existing ones like K12LTSP & OLPC) and to enlarge our community. We are going to release a spin, which allows students, as well as educators and teachers to use the advantages of open source software not only in classrooms or at work, but also at home.
