Edubuntu

Edubuntu is a version of the Ubuntu operating system suitable for classroom use. As an educator you'll be able to set up a computer lab, or establish an online learning environment, in an hour or less -- then administer that environment without having to become a fully-fledged Linux geek.

Edubuntu is currently under development by the same development team that produces the wildly popular Ubuntu system. It's a customized version of Ubuntu, scheduled for initial release in October 2005 at the same time as Ubuntu 5.10.

Podcasting?

One of the "hotest technologies" today is related to audio - listening to music via ITunes or some similar application/device. This technology now "expanding/evolving" and there are applications for Educators and ISD's who "think web"! Check it out: The audio/video Revolution has begun!

    Drupal

    Recently rated #2 in Content Management Systems (OpenSourceCMS) and has a branch of developers that are putting together a specific portal just for Education! :)

Not Just Talkin' the Talk Here! Actually Waddlin' the Walk!
Have installed OpenOffice Suite on an XP box and created a presentation about esc3 DOT ORG in OO's "native" presentation software (part of the suite) called Impress ... even "saved as" a PowerPoint!

Hmmmm ... brings to mind ... "It's Free! It works! DUH!" :) Wanna see? Check out the presentation files yourself! :)

Have installed a version of OO especially for MacOSX called "NeoOfficeJ"! From NeoOffice/J Home page the suite is described as:
"NeoOffice/J is a fully-featured set of office applications (including word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, and drawing programs) for Mac OS X. Based on the OpenOffice.org office suite, NeoOffice/J has integrated dozens of native Mac features and can import, edit, and exchange files with other popular office programs such as MicrosoftTM Office."

I'll vouch for that! :)

That presentation mentioned above ... exported as web via NeoOffice/J can be viewed here! and you can download the entire web presentation here (zip file link).

For questions about the server: Ken Task.
