Hello partners. I have to appreciate the efforts of each and everyone of
you in preparation towards the launch and the pilot project itself. As
we plan for the launch and the cost of the project, let us also put the
core item in mind: The presentation itself. We will be using the openzim
version of offline wikipedia for schools, so we have to be absolutely
conversant with its functionalities.
It could be more convenient if we had the latest version (late 2010) but
from the searches I have done, the latest we have is version 0.7 which
was released early this year. This version records some of the events
which have already taken place such as the 2010 world cup in future
tense. If anyone knows more about a later version release please inform us.
I have version 7 installed with Kiwix v.0.9 in my windows 7 and it is
confirmed that it works with no hickups.
I was just surfacing the idea that those of you that are going for the
pilot may first want to meet together so that we can familiarize
ourselves completely on the use of schools wikipediaa.This will make
presentations interesting and more efficient since we can only deliver
to others what we know very well. Let us get your views on this.
