I'm User:Walkerma from the English Wikipedia. I've been working for some time on producing offline collections of Wikipedia content from the English Wikipedia. We're currently looking at the possibility of subject-based books (e.g., on topics such as mammals or chemistry) for schools, using an affordable local printer.
Working with PediaPress I put together a "taster" example on chemistry, which is available here: http://pediapress.com/files/schoolbooks/chemistry.pdf though I'd like to expand it. This one is aligned to the English schools GCSE, but others could be designed around the curricula of different countries or provinces. I would see this just as a start - we would want to cover other subjects, other countries and other languages if it was successful. My questions: *Would anyone here be interested in working with me on developing this further? *Would English language books be useful in schools, or could we only use ones in Hindi, etc? *If these books are useful, does anyone here have contacts with a provincial or local ministry/board of education that might support an initiative like this?
