However, I am having trouble with the Planner, it would not save and did not appear to be working correctly. I was also having problems with XMind. I E-mailed RSC directly and below is the reply I received.</p> <p>Hi Nigel, </p> <p>Sorry, I'm away from the office at the moment and don't have access to a (reliable) Internet connection. I'll be back on Tuesday when I'll be able to take a closer look at this. Could you let me know which applications/packages you downloaded? Also, do you have Java installed on your machine? </p> <p>Xmind requires Java and I didn't include the runtime files in the download - so that might explain why it's not working. You can check out if Java is working properly here:</p> <p><a href="http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml" rel="nofollow">http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml</a> </p> <p>Not so sure about Planner - I'll give that a go on Monday night and try and get back to you on Tuesday! </p> <p>;-) </p> <p>Kenji Lamb</p> <p>Many thanks for the reply. I have checked Java and that is fine.</p> <p>In respect of the planner - I donwloaded it directly from the link on the site to my computer and it is working fine. However, I would like it to work from a pen drive.</p> <p>If anybody else is having any problems could they please let the site know. </p> diane.campbell on "Can we use the apps on our college network" http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/topic.php?id=7#post-8 Mon, 01 Jun 2009 14:44:47 +0000 diane.campbell 8@http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/ <p>Hiya</p> <p>Forth Valley College here - can we install the apps on our college network ? </p> <p>Thanks</p> <p>Diane </p> tanya on "How to add or remove applications from EduApps?" http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/topic.php?id=8#post-10 Thu, 04 Jun 2009 10:05:25 +0000 tanya 10@http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/ <p>Is it possible to pick some Applications from my downloaded Zip file and copy it on our staffs pendrive or do I need to pick and choose from the website and download it accordingly? </p> klamb on "Is there a way to run EduApps from my PC (i.e. not from a USB stick)?" http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/topic.php?id=6#post-7 Thu, 07 May 2009 14:57:08 +0000 klamb 7@http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/ <p>We were recently asked the question if it was possible to run the EduApps packages from the PC rather than a USB stick.</p> <p>The quick answer to this is yes, though you may want to consider using the fully installable versions of the software if you're going to have them permanently on the PC.</p> <p>To install an EduApps package onto a PC, simply copy over the three folders (don't copy the Launch or Autorun files) and place them in the root of your hard drive. For example, if you were copying LearnApps, you would end up with the following:</p> <p>C:\LearnApps [folder]<br /> C:\Documents [folder]<br /> C:\Applications [folder]</p> <p>The EduApps interface will <strong>NOT</strong> work if they're placed elsewhere (e.g. on your desktop).</p> <p>The next step is to create a shortcut to the file that launches the LearnApps menu. If you want to place this shortcut on your desktop, then follow these steps:</p> <p>1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop and select, New &gt; Shortcut<br /> 2. Select the Asuite.exe file which you'll find in C:\LearnApps\Asuite.exe<br /> 3. Choose an appropriate name for the shortcut.</p> <p>If you run into any problems, just add a post to this thread and I'll get back to you! </p> mhawksey on "Xerte - Learning object creator" http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/topic.php?id=5#post-6 Thu, 30 Apr 2009 13:18:34 +0000 mhawksey 6@http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/eduapps/forum/ <p>We've been asked about including the accessible learning object creator <a href="http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xerte/">Xerte</a> as part of TeachApps.</p> <p>Unfortunately when we tried running the original Xerte from a stick we couldn't get it to work :-(</p> <p>Our colleague Thomas Rochford from RSC Eastern has a solution for running the new Xerte Toolkit.

They had invested in a number of netbooks for students which came with a Linux OS, but limited number of applications. They had thought EduApps would be an ideal solution to their problems.</p> <p>Before we answering, we wanted to find out a bit more about their situation. We discovered that the netbooks had been using a customised version of the Xandros Linux distribution, which made it difficult to add new applications. However, Martin noted that it was possible to disable the customised interface and revert back to a standard desktop which allowed new applications to be added.</p> <p>However, in response to the original question, we haven't really explored the possibility of a Linux version of EduApps. There are some projects looking at this if you're interested:</p> <p> - <a href="http://www.portools.com" rel="nofollow">www.portools.com</a> (this has run into a couple of problems)<br /> - <a href="http://do.davebsd.com" rel="nofollow">http://do.davebsd.com</a></p> <p>If anyone has any additional information or an interest in a Linux version of EduApps, then we'd be delighted to hear from you. </p>
