But there is nobody to do it.
Having been in contact with many teachers this year, I pushed for a KEduca 
replacement as it is their first demand. A developer said he'll do it but we 
never heard of him...
I was tempted to start it myself but I am not up to the job, my coding skills 
are not good enough unfortunately. We need to do this as a team, with several 
people AND teachers.

What can you do? You can start listing your needs, draw the interface if you 
have some ideas and scan the draw, write what the program should do.
Start with 1 or 2 ideas and send them here. Other people will answer and taht 
will be a start already.
If we have a developer saying "I'll do a KEduca replacement" and he'll do it 
on its own it won't succeed. YOU teachers have to start telling how you want 
it. Maybe take KEduca if you have it and look what you don't like.

Another idea: at aKademy in Glasgow there will be an Edu day (see the Dot) and 
maybe we could do a workshop about KEduca.
