Knowledge7, in collaboration with Mozilla, hosted the first Mozilla Webmaker event in Mauritius open to all. Olivier Yip Tong, Software Engineer at Mozilla delivered a hands-on presentation of Webmaker tools, namely X-Ray Googles and Thimble, on Thursday 20th December 2012.
The participants who were journalists, software developers and educators at various levels (primary, secondary and tertiary) are now very keen to use the Webmaker tools in their day to day activities. Nausheen, an ICT support teacher in a ZEP school is enthusiastic: “Webmaker is a great tool to use in the classroom. The kids will love it.” David, a Physics teacher, is convinced that “these tools can be easily integrated into programs because colleges already have computer labs and audio-visual facilities.”
Mozilla is a non-profit organization, based in the USA and with offices worldwide, dedicated to empower people through the Web. The global community of Mozilla users, contributors and developers work to innovate by providing software such as the world class Firefox browser. At Knowledge7, we strive to share expertise and knowledge with all. Like Mozilla, Knowledge7 promotes openness, innovation & opportunities on the Web.

Hope the event was very successful.
However, I do not see that the event was open to public based on invitations. I lost my time sending emails and so on for this event. It should have been written private instead of “open to all”.
Hi Faardeen, the event was open to all but we only had 12 places available because each participant had to use a computer and we only have 12 of those in our training room.
We will have another event on 18 January in a much larger venue. You’ll be the first to be invited to participate 🙂
Ah ok. It does not matter. Merry Christmas and Happy new yr 🙂
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2013 to you and your family too 🙂
It was really interesting!! Thumbs Up to Knowledge 7 for this initiative. There is so much happening in web tech. Amazing discovery for me and very much useful for my profession. Thanks to the team. All the best for 2013 🙂
Thanks Nausheen for your kind words. It’s always a pleasure to have the opportunity to share freely with others 🙂
