Hi all,

Thanks, I got moodle (and Samba), but I am looking for an app that
runs on a laptop for teaching some secondary-level concepts like math
or science etc. that is FOSS and preferably Australian.

I guess there aren't any around (yet), but there could be...
Maybe an Aussie geo-political game of some sort? Some sort of
climate-modelling simulation for high-school students? Sex-ed?

Oh well, if it all actually comes about, I guess I'll just show that
Linux can display a web-page as good as the rest and that OpenOffice
can do the job.
