=== A bit of history ===
This new Debian sub-project is the continuation of the "Debian Education" french distribution made
by [http://www.logidee.com/ Logidee] with the help of a group of teachers called [Linux & Pedagogie
http://logiciels-libres-cndp.ac-versailles.fr/]

DebianEdu is about improving Debian to make it the best distribution for educational use.

The coordination of this project happens on debian-edu@lists.debian.org. You can subscribe to it by using the form available here (public archives of the list are at the same place) : http://lists.debian.org/debian-edu/

How to help

You can help in many ways :

  • package and maintain the software listed in ?DebianEduToPackage

  • sponsor non-Debian developers who are packaging education related software
  • integrate existing external packages into Debian : ?DebianEduToIntegrate

  • help with DebianInstaller to get a friendly installer for people with limited computer-skills

  • write good documentation for the education related software

Goals

  • Classify and package all free software related to education.
  • Write documentation to explain how to use the various software (in the educational context).
  • EyeCandiness aims at beautifying DebianEdu by creating eye candy graphics for it (contact: SurajKumar)

  (Q: How about Localization / Internationalization?)

This Debian sub-project should collaborate with many other entities which are interested in free software for education :
