1) Installation / Usability

  • installation , mainly under Microsoft Windows, is problematic ( unique registration, ...etc)
  • Installation in a rightless environment

2) Compatibility

Again, with MS Office (examples, precise case, writing of a guide avoiding issues, find the most known of them .. )

3) Maths

  • formulas alignments

This is an incredibly well known and important default. Some migrations failed just because of this "detail".

See the sadly well known issue 972 , and referenced in IssueZilla since may 2001 (yes 2001 !) URL :

4) Unclassified

  • Suggestions of amelioration

Partial answer : as soon as I'll have the answer to "how interface" and Application written in Lisp ( Maxima is written in Lisp ), I promise I'll take the task over.

Suggestion: instead of trying to do this by hand, use the Expect library; an Expect module for OOo would be really useful.

For every part, it could be interesting to define :

The relevant concerned programs

Every teacher will certainly have a personal way, but to obtain something consistent, it will be to follow a common skeleton, everybody is invited to improve.

  • prerequisites,
  • the place in the progression,
  • the time of the sequence..etc
  • objectives,
  • the place dans le referential of the program,
  • limits .. (thanks to improve and complete the list)

  • Mutualisation of documents : ADD A LICENSE FOR THE CONTENT

Example of downloadable document with licence

  • Suggestions for academical correspondents

- recent the schools using ( write a list on the Wiki ? )

- inform people managing / to be aware of the project existence and invite them to join us (Education Project, list)

- keep the list of known issues up to date , and define a list of priorities : we need to concentrate our efforts to the correction of such issues ! - participate, if possiblee, to events who can involve project in your academy - recent such events - recent existing tools and documents, who bring a value added the pedagogical interest to be used ( next step : put them on the site, for download, but define precisely how do that "before" ) - be visible
