If you happen to have an executable version of the eduActiv8 program there’s not a lot you need to worry about other than unpacking the file and double clicking on an executable file, installation is not required. If you, however, wish to run it from source there are some dependencies you will need to install. The eduActiv8 was developed in Python and uses the Pygame library for Graphical User Interface. It also uses eSpeak which is an open-source text-to-speech engine – this allows a computer to speak – it will read text within activities and enables listening exercises recently added to the project. To run eduActiv8 from source on desktop computers you need all 3 of them installed on your system (eSpeak is somewhat optional but certain activities will not be shown if not installed). Pygame version needs to be compatible with the version of Python installed on a target device.
The latest version should work on modern versions of Windows, MacOS and Linux.
Python versions supported:
python 2.7+ (including python 3+)
1GHz Processor (possibly less – eduActiv8 was developed to run on low-end machines).
usually up to 100MB of free RAM memory (but when playing the paint activity it may need a bit more to save the undo history) – in most cases 512MB cards should be enough on Linux on other Operating Systems it depends on how much your OS requires to keep running.
