Wouldn't it be great if the tools you need to access your education were free? Well, they are! Most of our recommendations are Free, Open-Source apps which give everyone equal access to the tools they need and while some of our listings here have commercial licences, they are all free.
I started freesoftwareforstudents when I was teaching in Central London. Many of our kids were on free school meals which meant that their parents had an income of less than £15,500 at the time. Spending money on Software to access Digital Learning was a complete no-no so I started finding legal, free alternatives, burn them to a CD and give them away, 15 years later, we've distributed the equivalent of over £300,000,000 of software packages.
Now all kids can be making fantastic presentations, getting homework and assignments done using word-processing, videos, sound, spreadsheets, databases, artwork, web pages, email clients and many more tools which are constantly being developed by hundreds of developers around the world.
