[kde-edu]: Feedback needed from teachers for the KDE-Edu project
Tue, 2 Apr 2002 11:50:47 +0100
As you know, the KDE-Edu project is doing quite well but we need more
feedback from teachers and in several countries.
We started to "internationalize" a few programs and we would need data in
several languages. We would also need to know if the application can be run
in several countries, and how to make it work for several languages.
As a start, we would need feedback about KLearnSpelling.
This program is intended to help pupils to learn to spell words. The
interface is not so good at the moment.
We would like to get some lists of words that children must learn to spell in
several languages. These words will also be used in other programs like
KHangMan, KMessedWords and a flash-card program (and maybe more).
We would like teachers to tell us how they think their pupils could use such
a program and what features would be useful for the teacher (having the score
of each child, printable, ....)
We already have the help of one teacher and the ideas he has are very
valuable as we, developers, don't see the software actually in use. If you
have Linux in your classroom or if you have a little time to test the
programs at home and participate at the improvement, we would be very
You can subscribe to the kde-edu mailing list
and send here your suggestions/ideas to improve one of the existing software.
Or you can mail me and I'll pass it on.
Thanks a lot in advance!
