The LG have decided that they can make staff more productive by giving them lots of amazing applications on their computers....
...the only major issue is that they don't want to spend any money on said sparkly applications that are designed to turn the staff into creative geniuses, so that leaves open source and other free apps....
Please can you give examples of some wonderful free apps that you use with your staff and that they actually use and enjoy using?
So far I've come up with:
Help much appreciated!
You want to give staff handbrake...to give them new and exciting methods of pirating content?
Personally I don't think finding an app and trying to shoehorn a use to it is a bit backward, surely you want to find an issue or area of development and find the solution to it?
not sure if they will use it as in an application but may be handy ref drive letters so that when they insert there Pen drives it will show up without conflicting with network drives as you can use USB DLM to ensure that drive letters are excluded from being used so you would add your network drive letters in the ini file in the correct section and then you could manually assign a few drive letters for usb devices whether ext hdd or pen drives or w/e
USB drive letter manager - USBDLM
If you mean on memory sticks then there is portable apps - plenty of free apps on there that are open source which may be of interest
PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB drives
whilst on the subject I could do with an open source suggestion for sticky notes myself
hott notes - the free desktop sticky notes
Agree on the portable apps, few websites that might help (sorted by function as well)

You would be doing the same if you gave them burning software or Windows media player.You want to give staff handbrake...to give them new and exciting methods of pirating content?
Could go for the cloud approach - prezi.com
Handbrake has one purpose - transcoding media. I don't see how that could aid innovative teaching day to day. however it could be used very easily, and most likely, to convert copyright restricted media.
Something which, based on my own experiences, teachers need no encouragement to do
Img Burn , cd burner xp - deep burner ?
