<p style='margin-left:35.4pt' >It&#x2019;s an Open Source software (distribuited with GPL license) freeware for
education. It can be installed on a private web server (if in your school there is an Intranet network) or public
 (hosted by an Internet Service Provider ).
 <p style='margin-left:35.4pt'>FreeSchool is a modular utility software. When installed on a public or
            private server, it employs conventional web interfaces to provide various services to every school
            component (students, teachers, school administrative-technical-auxiliary staff). No knowledge of
            information technology is required. The interfaces are easy to use, both when consulting and updating
            the database. Freeschool consists in a valuable alternative to finite commercial options.
            To those schools which are unable to develop or evaluate the different choices on the market, freeschool
             offers a homogeneous public solution. It proposes the introduction of new functions or the implementation
              of the existing ones, according to the needs. Only the authorized users can access the software.
            <p style="margin-left:35.4pt">Freeschool gives the possibility to shift language. The original version
            offers the following choices: Italian, English, Slovenian. It&#x2019;s possible to add other languages
            by simply editing XML text files and adding their translation into the desired language. To allow the
            largest font compatibility, the software uses the encoding UTF-8. It uses server web Apache,
            database MySQL and the following programming language PHP, XML, Javascript, XHTML and CSS.
