The best applications for the management of educational environments

apps for Linux educational environments

The educational environments they are vital. The learning of many people around the world depends on them. If they monopolize themselves with proprietary software, you will be pushing those students to have to invest money in licenses once they leave the environment in order to continue using the same programs.

Besides that, some schools of certain underdeveloped countries they do not have access to some operating systems and software given the price of licenses that they could not afford. This creates a significant educational gap between the poorest and richest countries, forcing the poorest to choose between the ethical dilemma of using pirated proprietary software or not using IT tools.

Therefore, it is very important to have tools for educational environments that are software for open source, free and free. They manage to balance in terms of equal opportunities for all, regardless of their origin.
