?GCompris is a framework for educational games for the GNOME desktop, already providing a large number of activities. It is meant to become some sort of unified interface for more educational games.

In French ?GCompris is pronounced like "j'ai compris", which means "I Have Understood".

In gcompris you can create new activities using the C or the python language. The python language is now the prefered way, it let developers create new content easier and faster.

Currently, there is a large number of activities implemented. The content provided is suitable for children from 2 to 10. A large spectrum of activities are implemented, each with the goal of complementing traditional teaching methods.

You can browse on-line the activity list with their localized description on http://ofset.sourceforge.net/gcompris/boards/_en.html

?GCompris is part of the DebianEdu effort.
