Ubuntu Education Application Bundles

Registered by Richard Weideman on 2008-12-08

Education Application Bundles:

Provide a way for the user to select a bundle of Education Applications which arfe apropriate for a particular education level:
* by school level option
* by age option

The requirement is in effect a simple way to do a "bulk selection of apps" for "bulk" installation from the application list available from the repository(ies)

Currently, the available education applications are not categorised or described in such a way that is is simple for the average:
[ teacher ]
[ schools network admin ]
[ home user student]
[ home user parent ]
to identify which applications are applicable / suitable for their requirements.

It would be useful to have the bundle selection available:
1. in Add/Remove as selections under Education category
2. Included as an install option when using the Education Add-on CD

4 bundle options proposed:
* Pre-School
* Primary
* Secondary
* Tertiary

The user would be able to choose one of these options, and this would select all the apps that match the level.
User can see the suggested selection list, and:
1. be warned which applications are "not officially supported" before installation commences
2. remove applications / modify the list before the install or download initiates
