I would like to know the list of apps in zorin os education. i am on zorin os 16.1 core right now, i think it would be handy to install those apps. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Are you seeking applications to learn about Zorin OS or educational applications for students ?
Please see this post by @swarfendor437 here:
I am currently downloading 16.1 to run in a VM to see if there are any changes.
I am aware that from Classroom control, Education has always come with Veyon, an application for the teacher to control the whole class. The new one also includes Whiteboard support and something else. It gets better every time.
@Dharshani If you want to install Educational apps yourself, install Synaptic Package Manager from the 'Store' or from the terminal:
sudo apt-get install synaptic
Then launch Synaptic and in the tiny search box near the top, enter 'Education' and see what comes back.
16.1 - I will only list educational items, not Text Editors etc.

Linear equations. (Comment - would be even better if it included 3rd Party application, Qalculate, especially for low vision users. (https://qalculate.github.io/)
Comment - for Tertiary applications, you might want to take a look at Uber Student in live mode. (https://uberstudent.org/)
Lastly, in view of the fact that a lot of the apps are KDE apps, would make sense to ditch Gnome for Plasma (KDE) for future releases.
Update 22.03.2022 - Noticed Veyon is no longer included - think this has been replaced wtih Kolibri which makes sense as students can use off-line at home.
