Hindawi Release 3
Project Hindawi team has uploaded Hindawi Release 3 (http://hindawi.in
), which includes an online edition of Hindawi, deployed on JAVA
virtual PC. No installations are required - one can just go to the
webpage and learn computing in one's mother-tongue!
(http://hindawi.in/online/) The top of the page shows a training
video, and the lower half has Hindawi running on JPC. This works on
all platforms / browsers that support Java (even some cell phones).
Apart from this we have packaged Hindawi on DOSBox with OS specific
installers which makes deployment user friendly. We have also started
building the training infrastructure for web-based video
lectures(using YouTube for hosting) and online books. The
of Hindawi are also being revamped.
We are confident Hindawi based teaching will finally take off with the
online version and web based training. We wanted the release to be
by 10th September but the deadline slipped by two-weeks and we could
the release only on 19th September.
At the end of all of this exercise we have identified a number of
small projects that students / community members can work on. We are
communicating the project details to colleges and on our website, and
expect some good response.
