ACLEA Website

The admins of Academic Center for Learning Excellence Abroad (ACLEA) asked me to update their site. It was a flash-based site so I thought of  re-creating their website using HTML5 and CSS3. Here are some screenshots:

It’s a 13-page site that now uses jQuery for the sliding images and gallery and a working contact us page. I used blue and white as its primary colors (i did retain the blue color) for a clean look which let’s visitors focus on the content.

Wikipedia for Schools

I was looking for a freeware reference software for a client and I came across Wikipedia Selection for Schools. This is the offline version of the popular online encyclopedia. It contains topics suited for school use well curated by volunteers of the SOS Children charity group.

The 2008/9 edition contains about 5500 topics that include Arts, History, Information Technology, Math, Science, etc. It’s about the size of a twenty-volume encyclopedia that includes 34,000 images and 20 million words.

The Wikipedia Selection for Schools may be downloaded via a torrent client. Download its torrent from the SOS Children website. After downloading, extract the file and open the “index.html” file using a web browser.
