Free Open Source Educational Programs, and Games and Simulators

Did you know about all the different types of high-quality free and open-source educational programs, games, and simulators that are available on the Internet? There are several different types of applications that are available for you to download.

The quality of these applications will vary from program to program, but most of them are really good. Here is a real short list of some of the good ones I am aware of:


  • TuxTyping - A typing tutor for children starring Tux, the Linux Penguin.
  • Tux Paint - A drawing program for young children, that provides a simple interface.
  • LeoCAD - A CAD program that uses bricks similar to those found in many toys.
  • Lincity - Build and maintain a city.
