The FreeMIS project is developing a free and better alternative to the commercial MIS (management information system) products currently used in Scottish high schools. It is currently running at North Berwick High School, where is provides reporting to parents, tracking and target setting, notifying the school office of unexplained absences from class via email, and writing positive referrals (certificates which recognise positive achievements by pupils).
Elite Journal is a personal online journal (or "blog") package. Elite Journal has a fairly complete feature set, including threaded comments, categories, drafts, "cuts", TrackBack pings, an RSS2.0 feed, and Textile or Markdown. The primary goal of the project is to be simple to install and use.
rwdaddresses is a simple little address book program using flat files. In addition to text data, contact photos can be added and viewed. You can sync contact names to/from an FTP site. It has context sensitive help. Additional applets can be downloaded. The GUI interface used is RubyWebDialogs, which runs through a Web browser. Therefore, it is completely cross-platform. This is part of the Tinker framework using Ruby, so applets can be added and removed.
hanjadic is a program that displays Chinese-based Korean characters ("hanja"), their Korean pronunciations, Korean and English definitions, their radicals, and related Korean vocabulary derived from the Chinese. There are four ways to search in hanjadic: English, character sound, character compounds (words composed of multiple characters), and by character. Despite its name, it probably isn't that good as a dictionary and is better suited as a Korean etymology and vocabulary-building tool, though it is also designed to show the beauty of traditional Chinese characters.
