I have finally got most of the project bernie site
(www.projectbernie.org) showing what is available on the school server.
The major missing piece is the 'homeview' button on the Class page. This
piece is being uploaded at the moment and with luck will be added later
I think the site is pretty representative of the actual content
available on an XO supported by a server with content from BERNIE.
Naturally, the web site links to the online source of the data on the
The library software is used for 'learn' and 'explore' on the Class page
and 'Sugar Activities' and 'Audio' on the Library page. These buttons
are suggestive since the actual content is too large to put on the web
For example, there are about 200 Sugar activities available to be
installed from the school server, but all I did was point to ASLO.
Similarly for the Audio button, I linked to the source site of the radio
clips, but you need the real server to see exactly which clips are
The 'learn' button on the Class page features the 'digital textbooks'
from Siyavula. Here the link shows what an XO would see from the same
link on the school server; however, on the school server the content is
downloaded to the Journal and viewed locally in the Browser. In general
content is downloaded to the XO so that it can be used when the XO is
offline. I also think this makes the network load more manageable
compared to streaming to a 30+ XOs. The 'explore' button features
courses on Python, Web technology, and the Command Line Interpreter
(Terminal activity). This also shows what would be seen on the XO.
