Edubuntu 11.10 is an Ubuntu flavour designed primarily for deployment in schools. The Edubuntu project is a group of people that aim to deliver the best of educational free software in an easily installable medium. We are part of the larger Ubuntu community and our main body of work is the Edubuntu installation disc, which installs Ubuntu along with educational tools and packages available in the Ubuntu software archives. We aim to make Ubuntu a great choice for the computing needs of children, students, parents, teachers and schools, bringing many of the best educational open-source applications and tools to the Ubuntu operating system. Edubuntu features an easier than ever installation for LTSP and netbook users. It also now ships with Gnome Nanny, a tool for restricting computer access to users at certain times that also provides basic content filtering. Edubuntu 11.10 64bit DVD can be used only with 64bit PCs.
Edubuntu is a partner project of Ubuntu Linux, a distribution suitable for classroom use. The aim is that an educator with limited technical knowledge and skill will be able to set up a computer lab, or establish an on-line learning environment, in an hour or less, and then administer that environment without having to become a fully-fledged Linux geek.
