The Best Linux Distro For e-Course Authoring and Content Management
 
I am interested in authoring and presenting e-learning materials for K-12 education in resource-insecure environments. I wish to create interactive eBooks, Videos, Simulations and Tests. One of the distros of this system will be suitable for use with laptops. The other will be projected on large screens in ambient light, considering the level of infrastructure in the areas. We hope to be creating fairly complex videos. I have been on and off with Linux. I am going full blast with the OS on this project. I am able to do some difficult tasks, having learnt computing in the 90's with MS-DOS. I understand that most of my present work will be done at the Applications level. I have taken time to study Linux distros and admire the stability of UBUNTU regular, the richness of UBUNTU Studio and the attractions of Mate and Cinnamon. Notwithstanding, I wish to submit to veterans of course authoring and content-management so that I can receive quick guidance when I need it. Sincere apologies for my long post.

The issue here is the applications you want to use, not the distro.

Pretty much any main-stream distro should work, so, if you like Ubuntu and Mint (aka "Ubuntu done right"), use one of them. I would recommend, though, using the LTS (long-term support) versions so you don't have to do version updates every six months.

As an aside, my personal favorites are Slackware, Debian, and Mageia, but I have happily used Ubuntu and Mint. My only complaint about the *buntus is their creepy sudo fetish, for which I have not yet seen a persuasive justification.

And welcome to LQ.

Thank you Frankbell. This is helpful; I'm better informed.
