Linux and Education

Postby osmansiddiq » Sun Jul 08, 2007 10:23 pm

A link between free software and education was first made by Richard Stallman in his essay Why Schools Should Use Exclusively Free Software.
Allow me initially to summarise what Richard Stallman said in his essay: free software should be used exclusively in schools because:

* It can save schools money.
* Schools should promote ways of living that benefit society as a whole; and free software, like recycling, does this.
* It promotes the idea that learning is not wrong, as proprietary software does when students reach an age when they start to ask “how does this work?â€

45 Minutes to a Moodle Education Server

Postby osmansiddiq » Sun Jul 08, 2007 10:45 pm

This beginner article by Mark Rais provides step-by-step instructions for installing Moodle, a Learning Management System, on to a Fedora Linux server. It provides everything necessary to setup a full powered intranet web-server that can support course listings, event calendars, student/teacher communication and much more. Best of all, a prototype server can be functional within about 45 minutes.

Mind-blasting Japanese language learning tools

Postby osmansiddiq » Sat Jul 14, 2007 1:22 am

Knowledge of a secondary language has long been a coveted skill, whether it be for academics, business, or travel, but learning another language can be a challenging task. While many Western languages at least offer a level of familiarity by sharing the Roman alphabet, Japanese and other Eastern languages offer no such comfort. Here are three applications that can help you overcome some learning roadblocks.
Japanese in particular utilizes three character systems: kanji or Chinese characters, hiragana, and katakana. The last two are Japanese syllabery used when there is no kanji for a word or for pronunciation. Kanji tends to make up the bulk of written Japanese, with hiragana being used for grammar such as verb tenses, leaving katakana reserved for foreign words. Hiragana and katakana can be tricky to learn, as each has 64 syllabic characters, but many of these are only slight variations.

While there are quite a few books on learning Japanese, books can be cumbersome to lug around, along with flashcards and other study materials. But if you have a notebook computer, you can get some learning done anytime by utilizing Kanatest 0.4.2, TangoBlaster 0.7.2, and Langdrill.
