The OFSET collaborative portal

"...because collaboration is the path to success in free software for education"

Welcome to the OFSET collaborative portal. OFSET is a community of volunteers willing to develop and to enhance free software for education. The success of free software in education can be achieved by an open and frank collaboration between teachers, software developers, translators and authors. Therefore we are proposing this portal as a central point where exchanges can take place in any suited forms. Please keep reading the following sections and come back to collaborate.


Freeduc-cd is a GNU/Linux distribution which can be used without installation. It is specifically dedicated to the world of education and it enables an easy introduction for stakeholders of education to the 40 free software packages included on the cd-rom. Freeduc-doc is its sister project related to introductive documentation about the software. Read more.


GNU Edu is an online portal, marketplace and community for users of free educational software to exchange and contribute documentation, localization, work sheets and other pedagogical content.

Writing quality free software required years of hard work, therefore collaboration is the only way to sustain and improve such efforts. Read more.
