Contributed Learning Files

The learning files listed here are intended for use with Parley and KWordQuiz which are both part of the KDE Edutainment project. To some extent these files also work with KHangMan and Kanagram.

Creating kvtml Files

  • You can create a kvtml file using KWordQuiz. You add the back and front for each cards and then you save your data. It will be saved using the kvtml extension.
  • If you are on KDE4 already consider using Parley. Parley offers a wealth of editing possibilities.
  • Please see here for an example of a kvtml file if you want to create one with an editor.

Share Your Files

Please upload files you created to kde-files.org. They will appear on the page and also show up in the download dialogs of the applications. The files can be found here:

If you have questions or need help, ask the the KDE-Edu mailing list.

All the files here are distributed under free licenses. If not otherwise stated this is the GNU General Public License. You are encouraged to download and use the files according to their license.
And you are even more encouraged to contribute your own files or improve the existing ones!

There is another thing you should keep in mind when using data from books or similar: copyright violation. As a rule of thumb you might say that individual word translations can be used from books but not entire sections (The data isn't copyrighted but the collection of data is). Also books out of copyright can be used for data (in the US this means mainly pre-1923 books). Have a look at project Gutenberg at Projekt Gutenberg-DE (German site), or www.gutenberg.org (English site), for more information about finding out if a book is out of copyright.

Despite the fact that all files can be loaded and used with both KWordQuiz and Parley you should keep in mind that KWordQuiz has a simpler design and might ignore some features from the files. If you work with KWordQuiz and save afterwards you might lose some properties that are available in Parley. For that reason the table above lists advanced features that are only available in Parley. Minor features like the names of lessons are not mentioned though they get lost with KWordQuiz. It is expected that this limitation will be removed in the next major version of KDE.

Removing Grades: Using Parley you should be able to remove grades from the files by using Edit -> Remove Grades.
