KDE Education Project

KDE Education Project

The KDE Education Project was started in July 2001. The goal of the project is to develop Free Educational Software (GPL licence) within the KDE environment. This software is mainly aimed to schools, to students and to parents at home as well as to adults willing to extend their knowledge.

KDE-Edu offers a wide range of applications from language-building apps like Kanagram and KWordQuiz to math-related ones such as KAlgebra and KBruch to blinken and KTurtle that fall under the Miscellaneous Edutainment category.

The KDE Education Suite is part of a standard installation of KDE 4.
