Wikipedia CD has been compiled to have more than 2500 hand-picked educational articles to help the school going kids as well as the schools for potentiating their course structures.
The CD has been compiled by volunteers for “the world’s largest orphan charity”, SOS Children. The articles, all of which are from the English language portal, are on common educational topics such as Geography, Science, Dinosaurs, Plants and Animals, to name a few. Articles on all countries and their capital cities have also been included.
Each of the articles has been “checked for suitability” and “cleaned by hand and script.”
The purpose behind this CD is to help the schools and institutions with a slow or no Internet connection. The way it is different from open source project – Encyclopodia (which puts all Wikipedia on your iPod) is that this CD is targeted towards the younger and growing audience and has been customized accordingly. Moreover the contents of this CDs are cross-checked for their credibility.
In order to download the CD, you need BitTorrent.
