Responding to Arnulf's tweet about the new site design 

Hi all,

I do like the general appearance. It’s really a big improvement.

Some suggestions:
-I don’t like the round corners of the boxes. I would prefer square 
-Some boxes have shadows and some don’t. I would prefer no shadows 
at all.
-The footer of the home page is much too big. I prefer the footer of 
the other pages because of the color of the text and its small height.
-Too many menus around the main content part of the page: the left 
hand side menu, the “about us, participate…” menu and the “tools to use, 
foundations to build on…” menu. I would prefer something simpler. I’m 
not sure we need these links on all pages. My suggestion: have a link to 
the home page, the search tool and a reminder of where we currently are 
(like osgeo  tools to use  find software).
-The languages links should be present on all pages. This list of 
languages may grow in the future. Keeping it a single line may be 
difficult. Would it be possible to use a drop down list instead of a 
line of links?
-The content and title of the home page boxes is quite confusing. 
What about having the following sections: OSGeo Foundation, Community 
and Projects?

-A place for news is missing.

Hello All,

I'm interested designing lab exercises for Geography and GIS related 
courses, the course content would be for higher educational courses. 
Does anyone have any suggestions of where I could search for useful 
resources, examples etc...

Razy, I suspect you would want to start looking at the ELOGeo repository:

Then also discuss ideas with the osgeo educational email list.
