eVillage Committees

Each eVillage should form separate committees to see how each subject area can be explored and promoted in the village in a way ICT and English is used.

Each committee should have at least one monthly meeting in the school or anywhere else that suits to the subject area. Committee can be consisted of teachers, clergy, professionals in the respective fields, parents, youth, students and online volunteers. Committees can collect, translate, create and distribute content that is suitable for the stakeholders. Each committee can have a blog and a library to publish and store their content. School wallpapers, pamphlets, handbills, booklets, CDs, DVDs, etc. can be used for distributing the content among those who are interested. Each committee should raise funds for the expenses of the committee. The commits can explore new fund raising ideas. Each committee can have a year plan at the beginning of the year. The plan should contain both virtual and real activities each committee is supposed to do. The plan should work out in a way that work can be done individually and as small groups and the full committee. Continuous interaction with other committees and online community is encouraged. Committees should arrange and take part in events related to the subject areas.

At the end of each year the eVillage Center of each eVillage can conduct a competition to reward the best committees. With a dawn of a new year, the students and the youth should be changed their committees and new students and youth should be accommodated.  The rest of the members can be retained in the committee.

Center Manager can be an advisor to each committee when necessary.

To make a story on the web you can try some of the following hints.

  1. Be focused – If your project is about ICT and English, keep that in mind and prepare your content accordingly.  Your donors are interested in hearing how their money is being put to use based on your donation options that you provide.
  2. Project updates are critical to fundraising success. Project updates show donors that their money makes a difference in someone’s life. It lets them know what has been accomplished and encourages them to stay engaged and potentially make a second, third, or fourth contribution.

What makes a great update on the web?

  1. Narrative: A project update can be two-three short paragraphs explaining the progress of your project, telling the story of a beneficiary, or describing the impact your project has made so far and explaining your plans going forward. Include both narrative and numbers on the people you have served.  Use quotes: Tell stories from the people you serve in their own words (or translations).
  2. Visual: Attach a photo. If you tell one person’s story, include a close crop photo of the person’s face. A good “one person” photo leaves a deeper impression than a hundred group photos.
  3. Multimedia: An update can combine text, photo, video (upload to YouTube and include link), or an audio podcast (upload elsewhere and link).
  4. Thanks: Thank your supporters. Give credits to the necessary individuals, institutions, etc.
  5. Engage: Conclude by asking your donors, “what do you think?” Ask them a specific question about your project, or how you can work together to attract wider support.

Coding Audio and Video in HTML

The simplest way to call a sound file is to simply put a link to the file. Depending on your browser and configuration, it will either invoke your operating system’s basic player software, player support built into the browser, or a plug-in that provides the player capability.   As an example of the simplest format, the line of HTML code below will call up the file Track 2.mp3 from the current directory with any browser. Note that you can play any sound file with this command format, not just MIDI files
