Free and Open Source Software Resource

The UNESCO Bangkok ICT in Education Unit has created a CD-ROM which contains a selection of free and open source software (FOSS) tools, useful for a variety of contexts.

The software in the resource are divided into the following categories: audio and video; games; graphics; internet; learning; office; and utilities.

Each software application has been thoroughly tested and verified by a team from the ICT in Education Unit, to ensure its effectiveness and safety. The software have also been checked to make sure that they do not include any viruses, adware, malware or spyware.

This resource may be used and copied freely, and distributed among educators, students, and any others who would like to use it, thanks to the flexible licensing terms of the software developers.

To find out more about the project, please email:

For further information about FOSS see the Open Source page of our ICT in Education website.

Note - 25 February 2007: Due to high demand, we currently do not have any copies of the CD-ROM available for distribution. We hope to find funding to produce additional copies of the CD-ROM soon.

In the meantime, please visit this website where you can download all of the content of the FOSS CD-ROM:

Another website which allows visitors to freely download a range of useful computer programs (click on the "Programs" tab for a list of FOSS) is the OpenCD website:
