- Is this possible? e.g. to be able to use and access a snapshot of WikiEducator in a lab with no Internet access. This would also be useful for demo purposes and tutorials in such low/zero-bandwidth situations. Thanks Ktucker 11:02, 3 September 2007 (CEST)
- If you add the link to your favorites, in the process (at least in Explorer) there is a check box to make content available offline. If you then click customize you can elect to also have linked pages available offline and you can choose how deep the linkage can be (2 or three pages deep for example).

Thanks - but this would not work for an interactive demo and hands on tutorial.
The idea is to have a complete installation of WikiEducator to serve up on a local network.
I understand there is work going on to allow delayed synchs ... e.g. if we did have people updating a local installation, and connectivity became available intermittently (as is quite common in Africa for example) the system would accommodate synchronisation. Although simple for entirely new pages, for frequently edited pages the enhancement would require a means of allowing people to select from multiple possible edit paths retrospectively.

Kim: Definitely a challenging project ... but one that came up multiple times during the Tectonic Shift Think Tank in April this year. Could also allow for offline editing as well. Currently there is not an easily downloadable version of WikiEd content, but perhaps there should be.
