Benefit to XSCD

This feature gives access to additional content.


The Internet in a Box gives users access to the books in English from E-Pustakalaya, Learn English - Kids from the British Council, Sugar Activities, and audio clips from Old Time Radio and Music collections.

UI Design

The user clicks on the Library icon on the portal. This screen has icons for the various collections. The user clicks on the appropriate icon to access a collection. The next level either shows buttons for items in the collection or buttons for sub-collections. The item screen shows 9 items per screen. The user navigates by the arrow keys to select an item. Clicking on an item causes Browse to download it to the Journal (or for Sugar Activities, install the activity).
