Magnetotellurics is of one the most important and extensively applied research and exploration methodologies in electromagnetic geophysics engineering. On the other hand, many educational difficulties are reported concerning the level of comprehension and the depth of understanding of the learners with respect to magnetotellurics, as well as the development, by the tutors, of educational tools and methods for effective teaching of the various aspects of magnetotelluric theory. Aiming to contribute to improve these conditions, an educational software bundle was developed in order to provide configurable modelling and simulation tools of impedance tensor decomposition, distortion tensor decomposition, and Mohr circle topology in the context of different, user-definable geoelectric structure symmetries. Indicative examples are presented that demonstrate the mode of application of the various software modules in studying interesting magnetotelluric theoretical aspects and problems
