Logger Pro for Linux Public Beta

We are providing a free public beta of our award-winning Logger Pro software for the Ubuntu Linux operating system.

We are using the public beta to gauge interest in developing our software for the Linux platform, and continued work will depend on the feedback we receive.

The public beta release is our current stable version of Logger Pro for Linux. It has not gone through all of our formal internal quality assurance tests.

Logger Pro for Linux is not open source software. While the public beta is free, we may charge for the release version.

Key Features

  • Collect data real-time from over 50 sensors
  • Powerful analysis tools to help students hypothesize experiments, interpret their data, form conclusions, and inspire inquiry
  • Visualize data with graphs, meters, and displays to connect data and learning
