2 Atutor

ATutor is an Open Source Web-based Learning Management System (LMS) used to develop and deliver online courses. Administrators can install or update ATutor in minutes, develop custom themes to give ATutor a new look, and easily extend its functionality with feature modules.

Teachers making use of the ATutor online software will be able to manage their courses plus provide students with a means by which they can keep a tab on their coursework. Also, this application makes it possible for tests, assignments, grades, etc. to be posted. With it accounts can be created by students who can equally keep a close eye on their specific classes or assignments whenever.

3 GCompris

GCompris is similar to DoudouLinux above in that it is used in educating little children who are two to ten years of age. It achieves this much in the same way as DoudouLinux does as expected through different activities plus games. Now a number of these activities focus on helping kids to better understand the way to make use of a computer. With others focus on teaching standard subjects like math, science, algebra, reading, and geography. Presently, GCompris offers more than 100 activities and it is completely free.
