Flash SlideShow Maker

Flash SlideShow Maker, http://www.flash-slideshow-/ is an interesting software for creating slide shows in flash format (.swf format). A perfect alternative to Microsoft Photostory and with some advantages as well. The software offers more or less the same features as Photostory but is more compatible. Except the 'Theme' features, rest all are available in the free version. Some of the features are Transition, Adding Music, Settings, Adding Text on Photo. One suggestion - while applying settings or transition, first select all the photos and then apply them. A good handy tool.

Free Multimedia Based Academic Content by CII-Shiksha

Somehow, i forgot to post about the free content offered by CII-Shiksha, the organisation i am involved with. Since CII-Shiksha is a non-profit and so the content is free for anybody to download, use, redistribute, etc. There are 32 lessons / modules from Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Geography. The uniqueness of the content lies in the fact that it contains a good mixture of various multimedia components, is self-driven, etc. The idea behind creating the content was to develop some quality content that could be made available to rural schools and children in India, who either do not have quality teachers or no teachers at all. Every module has exercises, quizzes, an animated character guiding the learner, summary, etc. The modules are created to provide a conceptual understanding of the topic. The content could be downloaded from free Shiksha portal,

give it a try and do give feedback.

best of exploring !
