Open source goes back to school

Open source goes back to school

The Shuttleworth Foundation is releasing an open source school information management system worldwide.

SchoolTool 1.0 is targeted at primary and secondary schools, and is in beta testing and will be deployed at the beginning of the 2010 academic year.

According to the SchoolTool Web site, the program does not depend on a technology-intensive environment, but is aimed at schools with broad access to technology in the form of computers, laptops, PDAs, cellphones and wireless pagers. SchoolTool will leverage those communication technologies to deliver the needed information.
