Open source alternatives for educational and science software

Open launches a new category for educational and science related software. This new category will list free open source software alternatives to proprietary products.

The software listed will be for students as well as school administrators. Also there will be software that focuses on elementary school and high school (k12), college and university. Simulation software and educational games will also be included in the new category.

You can access the new category through the categories or directly here.

Today we launch with four open source products - but hope that we will soon be able to add many more. The four products are:

Enjoy our new offering - and please let us known if you have any comments or suggestions for more open source software alternatives.

another alternative is Chamilo, former known as Dokeos. Dokeos had already more than 9.000 installations worldwide with more than 2.5 million users in 38 languages. Dokeos was developed in Belgium as an alternative for BlackBoard. For users from BlackBoard it is easy to change to Dokeos, or now to Chamilo. The Vrije Universiteit Brussel migrated in only a few weeks with 10.000 users from BlackBoard to Dokeos.
Since January 2010 almost all developers are working now for Chamilo which is supported by an independent foundation, . Now Chamilo is 100% open source and members can make their own decisions the community is much more active as before.
Chamilo 2.0 will be presented soon, new and clean code with a lot of new features.
