Omnitux aims to provide various educational activities based on multimedia elements (images, sounds, and text). Possible activity types are associations, puzzles, counting activities, etc. There is support for multiple languages and multiple screen resolutions (by using SVG vector graphic files and high quality bitmap files). Omnitux activities are described in XML files, so it is possible to create new activities without modifying the program.
Brain Workshop is an implementation of the Dual N-Back mental exercise. This exercise is a mental activity that has been scientifically shown to improve your working memory (short-term memory) and fluid intelligence. The game involves remembering a sequence of spoken letters and a sequence of positions of a square at the same time. Brain Workshop includes additional challenging game modes beyond Dual N-Back.
The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash card program to help you memorize question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.
MicroTiger is a graphical microcode simulator with a reconfigurable datapath. The datapath editor window, the main application window, allows for datapath creation and simulation. In addition, several other dialog windows are provided to aid in creating the datapath. The microprogram editor window allows for microprograms and aids in simulation. The ISA code is externally edited and can be viewed in the ISA code viewer window. The simulation controls are available in the main application window. The expression language is available for ALUs and custom components to customize the evaluation of these components.
Japanese Vocabulary is an application for studying Japanese vocabulary. It consists of a set of cards, each with the kanji spelling, kana reading, and the meaning in English (or another language). It uses the Leitner system for managing the cards, which means that you see the cards you know well less often than you see the ones that you don't know very well. This allows the learner to focus on learning those words with which they are having trouble. It comes with the JLPT 2, 3, and 4 vocabulary lists.
ReadingBug is a designed to help in memorizing words, spelling, mathematics, and other things. ReadingBug may look like just another flash card program, but it can do much more. The program will track the progress of the student in a simple HTML table that can be imported into other programs for further evaluation. The program is fully configurable. Sounds and graphics are left in a simple format, allowing users to make changes as they see fit.
Linguistic Tree Constructor is an application for drawing linguistic syntax trees. Its main strength is assisting in data production by quickly analyzing large amounts of text. "Generic" trees are supported, as well as RRG and X-Bar trees. Node-categories are user-definable, and additional user-definable labels can also be applied to each node. Publication-quality, high-resolution, horizontal trees can be drawn. The file format is based on TIGER-XML.
