Development of the portable e-portfolio (PeP) is part of the innovations made possible by Puppy Linux OS. As of April 18, 2006 , the first ISO of the SchoolPup project is released. More details below.
- LodPup is a 90-MB live CD based on Puppy GNU/Linux and Reload's SCORM Player, a complete PuppyOS + Java Client + SCORM player system that can be run in a Pentium II PC with 256 MB total memory (RAM + swap) - hard disk is needed only for swap if RAM is limited. Machines with 128 MB or less total memory can use a browser and play SCORM material from a server machine configured to run the SCORM player. Mainstream Learning Management Systems (LMS) can play SCORM in a modest PC-server in a Local Area Network (LAN). Download LodPup here, and this is the md5sum: 07cbee7c0b2c4094be42777549e9435b. The instructions in how to use it are in this scorm-readme.txt (this readme is also in the ISO).
- WikiPup is a DVD of static Wiki content ready for serving with PuppyOS + Apache with ModPHP. What this means is that every teacher can use Wiki content for creating interactive pages for her students, the only hardware requirement being a PC with DVD drive. Of course, interaction with many students can be achieved if that PC is attached to a local area network (LAN). Update July 17, 2006: Wikipedia 2006 static CD is now available as add-on package for Puppy Linux.
- More Pups - The Puppy Linux Forum hosts the development of other services like a compact Apache-PHP-MySQL server (72 MB) that can make a server out of a modest PC like a Pentium II with hard drive and 128 MB of RAM.
