Emma the Emulator is a generic 16-bit CPU emulator written as an educational tool. It supports a basic instruction set, has two registers and a program counter pointing to a heap structure which can be resized at compile time, and has a basic stack (not linked to the heap in any way), a flag register, and an internal "error number" for debugging purposes. There is also a "debug" mode which adds a lot of runtime debugging information and causes the program to sleep for 1 second between operations.
Seismic Toolkit is a tool for processing and displaying seismic signal data in a graphical interface. It reads seismic signals in SAC format, and provides a variety of signal processing, such as filtering, spectral analysis, polarisation analysis, time-frequency representation, Hilbert transform, and singular value decomposition. Some utilities are included for useful seismological applications, like computation of Seismic Moment Mo, Mantle magnitude Mm and Moment magnitude Mw, MTPA spectral analysis, plotting focal mechanisms, computation (and plotting) of instrumental response from poles and zeros, and some usefull GMT (Generic Mapping Tool) scripts for plotting signals, responses, and time-frequency in Postscript files for high quality prints.
GCompris is an educational software suite with numerous activities for children aged 2 to 10. Some of the activities are game-orientated, but nonetheless still educational. These include computer discovery (keyboard, mouse, different mouse gestures), algebra (table memory, enumeration, double entry table, mirror image), science (the canal lock, the water cycle, the submarine, electric simulation), geography (place the country on the map), games (chess, memory, connect 4, oware, sudoku), reading practice, and others (learn to tell time, puzzles of famous paintings, vector drawing, cartoon making, etc.). It currently offers in excess of 100 activities, and more are being developed.
LingNUX is a dictionary for French students of the Russian language. Both languages can be easily entered without affecting the AZERTY French keyboard settings at the system level. It reads dictionary files with the DSL extension, which is one of the formats used by the famous Russian dictionary "ABBYY Lingvo" under Windows.
Ardesia helps you make colored free-hand annotations on your computer screen, record them, and share them on the network.

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.
Golem Python Framework is a Python game framework for developing and learning. It can assist a student of programming by providing opportunities to write programs with interestingly visible effects, despite their simplicity. Golem provides a Web-based interface that can be used even by very early students to learn the basics of thinking with computer code by teaching a visible character on the screen to perform various tasks. Golem is based on Python, and allows a student to use all of Python's features. It attempts to hide the intimidating face that computer programming can present. Learners who are too advanced for the Web interface can use Golem as a powerful Python development framework that is effective for developing cross-platform 2D games.
eXaminator generates multiple choice exams for use with LaTeX. A collection of questions in a simple plain text format must be supplied. After specifying how many questions should be taken from each collection file, it will choose from them randomly and maintains a history (in a hidden file in the local directory) to guarantee that questions are reused as seldom as possible. Questions can also include pictures.
Artha is a handy thesaurus based on WordNet with distinct features like global hot key look up, passive desktop notification, regular expression based search, etc. Artha may be used as a free open-source replacement/clone to the proprietary WordWeb Pro thesaurus (which is also based on WordNet) on Unix-like and Windows operating systems.
