"Dan McMenamin asked: Anyone know if there's some Linux-based application that will accept inputs from weather instruments and display the data etc on a school's internal or external webpage? We found wx200d, wx2000, gwx, and Steve McCarthy's personal program. These apps work with specific weather instruments (different in most cases). Of them all, Steve McCarthy's seems to be closest to what Dan is looking for. If you know of any more, please send that information to Doug Loss."

"We received a notice from Daniel Molkentin about the reappearance of KDE-EDU: KDE-EDU is back! We recreated KDE-EDU for mainly two purposes:

  1. To have a forum for questions and discussions on how to use KDE in schools or other educational environments. As we want to get as many Windows user as possible to use KDE un Linux/UNIX as their default working platform, we want to give support every effort to use KDE in educational facilities.
  2. To talk about new KDE programs that can be used or are intended for educational purposes. Therefore, I will regularly check apps.kde.com for such programs and post them here. We also strongly encourage people to write or port such programs or report about existing ones here. For porting purposes also have a look at the "kde-devel" and "kde2-porting" mailinglists."

"vsep is a tcl/tk program. It's a kind of quiz. You have a theme to choose (currently , maths and spanish) and then you have several exercises to practice those subjects. You choose the right answer out of 3 or 4 possible answers, that are written in buttons. (License: GPL) http://pyportal.seul.org/vsep/"
