Concept:Education



AKFAvatar
AKFAvatar is a fancy graphical user interface for applications, where an avatar appears on the screen and tells things to the user via a speech bubble. There can also be recorded audio files, so that the user even can hear what it is saying. It can be used for infotainment systems.

With AKFAvatar you can easily write cross platform applications in Lua. Lua scripts don't even need to be compiled for the target platform. It has an interface for C programs. Furthermore there is a binding for Free Pascal.

AKFQuiz
'AKFQuiz' lets you make your own quiz games, learning exercises or psychotests. These can be used with grquiz in a graphical environment, or with scrquiz on the text-console. There is also a line oriented variant, linequiz, which can be used as a backend. A CGI-variant, cgiquiz, can be installed on a Web server to offer exercises via Internet or a local network. Or you can use mkquiz, which generates an HTML-file for to use with JavaScript. Those can then be published using any web-space provider.

Abs
Learn how to program shell scripts using bash, the command interpreter from the GNU project. Start from the basics and become and advanced programmer.

Aetherspace Heckert gnu.small.png
'Aetherspace' is a project to produce multiplayer game that blends several different game genres. It is being developed by gamers as a way to learn programming. These games are currently under development and, while fun to look at, are not considered playable yet.

Airtime
Think of a radio station. Airtime is software that allows multiple people to run it over the internet. Airtime helps them manage the audio archive, upload files, create shows, manage staff, edit the programme calendar and cue playout. Designed specifically for independent media, it's free software.

Anki
Anki is a flashcard program which makes remembering things easy. Because it is a lot more efficient than traditional study methods, you can either greatly decrease your time spent studying, or greatly increase the amount you learn.

Anyone who needs to remember things in their daily life can benefit from Anki. Since it is content-agnostic and supports images, audio, videos and scientific markup (via LaTeX), the possibilities are endless. For example:

- learning a language
- studying for medical and law exams
- memorizing people's names and faces
- brushing up on geography
- mastering long poems
- even practicing guitar chords!

Avaneya: Viking Lander Remastered DVD
Whether you are a fan of science fiction, a space–science enthusiast, hobbyist, photographer, gamer or a patron of grass–roots libre arts and technology, you are sure to find the first successful images from the surface of Mars highly captivating. These mind blowing images were taken by NASA's Viking landers during the highly ambitious, billion–dollar mission first launched in 1975. However, many images were nearly lost to history due to magnetic tape deterioration and archaic proprietary technology.

With NASA's blessing, our team developed the technology to recover many of these images. This research tool was part of the design phase of our parent project, Avaneya — our upcoming libre cerebral science fiction game for the GNU operating system set on Mars, described in the words of Richard Stallman as an exciting, pioneering project.

Originally an internal research tool, overwhelming public interest compelled us to release the technology on this DVD for all. Now everyone can relive the original breathtaking experience that captured the world's attention and marked the first successful moment in history that humanity saw Mars — not as a distant, impersonal, celestial body, beheld through a telescope for centuries, but as a tangible and alien world well within its reach.

BASM
BASM is a user friendly and easy to use assembler for The Basic Computer, capable of creating the object, list and hex file and giving detailed error reports. It's more of academic use for students who wish to understand how does The Basic Computer actually work.

Bibfilex
Bibfilex is a free bibliographic manager for GNU/Linux and Windows. It's useful to create and to manage archives of bibliographical items (books, articles, etc.) with possible attachments of any kind according to Biblatex structure and rules, but it can be used also with a wordprocessor like Writer or Word. Bibfilex may create and manage files which are catalogs of many items – also thousands of them. A file of Bibfilex is a database of SQLite (www.sqlite.org), a popular software whose data can be easily read and exported through different tools available on the Internet. In a Bibfilex file data are not stored according to Biblatex format, so it cannot be used as a bibliographic file in a Latex document. Anyway, Biblatex may export with a one-click functionality all or part of its content in Biblatex format file; this can be read directly with JabRef or used in a Latex document. At the same time, Bibfilex may import directly a JabRef database. The main features of the software are: store the items according to each one of the entry types described in the Biblatex manual (book, article, etc.); import the content of a file in Biblatex format (like a JabRef database); export data in a Biblatex file (like a JabRef database); locate an item just typing its author name, title, etc.; filter the items selecting a keyword in a list; filter the items by the BibTex keys contained within a \cite{} or similar command in a Latex document; filter the items according to three different conditions, or modify manually the SQL statement of the filter to make it more suitable or complex; replace the citation commands (\cite, etc.) and \printbibliography command in a Latex document with extended citations and bibliography, which are composed according to a user defined pattern; associate various attachments (files of every kind) to each item; the attachments are zipped and stored in a directory with the same name and path of the Bibfilex file in use, and automatically managed by the software; the number of attachments is limited only by the available disk space; activate autocompletion of data in each field with “Ctrl + Space”; create automatically unique BibTex keys according to a pattern defined by the user; specify the fields (columns) shown in the grid view of the data; forms to insert easily special characters and keywords; bookmarks, to go easily to a specified item; copy in the current item the content of some fields of another item referenced by the crossref field. Bibfilex has also the possibility to compose the citation of an item according to a user defined pattern and copy it in the clipboard in Latex or HTML format; in the last case, the citation may be pasted in a word processor like LibreOffice Writer mantaining font formatting (italic, small caps, etc.). This makes Bibfilex useful also for those who do not use Latex, but a word processor instead.

BibleTime
BibleTime is a powerful cross platform Bible study tool. It uses the SWORD programming library to work with Bible texts, commentaries, dictionaries and books provided by the CrossWire Bible Society.
