Hi Alastair

Wow -- that's an interesting resource you are developing on Mars. WikiEducator is a community of people who are working together to develop learning materials, especially for Children who may not be able to afford or buy expensive text books.

I want to thank you for your hard work in helping us -- I'm sure that your work is going to help many kids around the world.

I can see that you have a natural talent and ability for using technology! Gee I'm very impressed.

I hope you don't mind, but I wanted to show you a special feature to include templates -- these are a few smart layout features we have in WikiEducator.

Also, I've included an example incorporating some tricks that you can use with images -- you can read more about this over here.

I'm looking forward to see how your project on Mars develops over time.

Dear Wayne,

Thanks a lot for the email. Do you really think that people will look at this? It'll be pretty neat if they do. It's getting late now, but tomorrow I will look at those links. I noticed that there have been 103 or more visits to my site. That's pretty exciting.

Good night,

I'm pretty sure that people will come and have a look and maybe even use the materials to learn something. The next step is to refine and polish the materials a little and then to ask a few of your friends to take a look and see if they have any suggestions to help you improve the resource.

Yeah -- wiki's are amazing.

Not sure if you tried this yet -- but on the left hand side of the screen there is a link called download as pdf. This will automatically generate a print version of your materials - so kids you don't have access to the internet can get a print copy. In fact you could develop a book on the planets if you wanted to.

I look forward to seeing the next draft.
