Ardesia helps you make colored free-hand annotations on your computer screen, record them, and share them on the network. You can use the tool to make effective on-screen presentations, highlight things, or point out things of interest. It facilitates online presentations and demos, showing in real time your computer screen to anyone in the network. You can use this tool to enhance your lessons or courses. You can create nice tutorials and documentation, saving the desktop images with your free hand annotations. It works with any pointing device. You can draw lines with different strength, select color, erase things, and draw arrows. You can free-hand draw geometrical shapes using the shape recognizer, insert text with the keyboard, and highlight screen areas. You can draw upon the desktop or select an image as a background.
The PARSEC (Preliminary Analysis of Revolutionary Space Exploration Concepts) CEE (Collaborative Engineering Environment) creates a single-user interface for engineers and scientists to work together to design launch vehicle and spacecraft concepts. The interface allows for seamless integration of design tools for any discipline as well as communication with other team members. Data storage and maintenance is handled automatically. The interface gives users the ability to run multiple design codes and iterative analyses. Branching and other logic operations are also supported. Some data reduction ability is provided as well.
OpenClass is a simple solution for class control. It provides multicast screen projection (sending the teacher's screen to all of the students), student attention requests (blocking student activities and asking them to look at teacher), viewing of all student screens at once, direct messaging to students, file and URL sharing, computer shutdown, access control for specific classes, and support for multi-seat configurations and multiple clients per machine. For students it provides automatic teacher discovery via broadcast, "raise hand" functionality, and automatic handling of network saturation and disconnection events.
V6 Thompson Shell Port provides two ports of the original /bin/sh from Sixth Edition (V6) UNIX (circa 1975). osh is an enhanced port of the shell, and sh6 is an unenhanced port of the shell. This project also includes glob6, if, goto, and fd2 as external shell utilities. While they remain external for compatible use by sh6, these utilities are integrated into osh to improve shell performance.
SYINF shows in brief a system's CPU brand and model, RAM size, disk space, operating system, regional parameters, and current date and time. It can run in interactive (menu) or batch mode. There are two versions, in the C and C++ languages. They have been tested on 21 (15) compilers, 27 (26) operating systems, and 19 architectures. (Figures in parentheses are for the C++ version.) Both versions are conveyed in source code form only, each as a single ~35 KB source text file.
Science Quiz Bowl Challenge is a game of questions and answers. There are four topics: astronomy, biology, geology, and physics. After selecting a topic from the menu, a set of 10 questions are randomly presented, one by one, out from a pool of over 20 questions. The goal is to correctly answer as many questions as possible.
Eco-Memory is the classic memory game where the goal is to find matching pairs of cards. The cards represent habitats, organisms, and cultural entities of ecosystems like the Boreal Forest, Coral Reef, Deciduous Forest, Desert, Ice, Intertidal Zone, Rainforest, Surface Zone, Tundra, and Wetland. The game includes a small synopsis of the organisms, the cultural entities, and the habitats themselves. The synopsis is available through an "About" button that you may click after finding a matching pair of cards.
