"In addition to providing software for students' client
computers, the Life DVD contains a full LAMP stack, terminal server
for thin clients (KIWI-LTSP), and (of course) a bevy of educational
software for students and teachers. The goal of the project is to
provide a complete solution for educators, students, and IT admins
who handle the labs at educational institutions.
"The software includes openSIS, a Web-based Student Information
System that provides everything you'd need to manage students:
gradebooks, reports, transcripts, report cards, contact management,
attendance, and health records."
