The team members shown interest in creatibg web page for the ThinkQuest competition at the end of last year. However they only have quite basic ICT skills. Thus arrangement was made for this keen boys.
Amyrul is particularly quick to pick up the skills of using DreamWeaver. Thus he has other tutorial sessions with his group members. With the skills, these other members are already trying their hands on some other projects.
The strength of Sanjevakumarran is using Movie Maker. He taught other team members to edit video recordings. Now all five of them are able to handle the software confidently, using in other projects.
Yizhe is the one who writes. Members of team would write and he would correct the grammatical errors. He is also very good in Mathematics, so he was able to foemulate questions for quiz and crosswords. The other members were all his testers. They work togather.
Ariff is the one who put questions into interactive quiz and life crosswords. Anyway, by the end of this project, all 5 of them are able to handle HotPotato software with confidence.

We use a diverse choice of software: DreamWeaver, Adobe Photoshop, Paint, Movie Maker, HotPotato, and Ms Excel.
With DreamWeaver, of course it is the foundation of this website.
With Adobe Photoshop and Paint, pictures and photographs were edited to the suitable size and appearance.
With Movie Maker, team members edited and unhance the video recordings they have captured.
Ms Excel was used to create graphs and charts which are used in this topic, a must for graphical presentation of data.
HotPotato was used to create crossword puzzles. Quiz was also created using HotPotato. With these activities, the site becomes more interesting and entaining to some.
We did not really need a very diverse team to gather information for this site. However, the teams members are from from socio-econimics background does help when we need to collaborate with people from outside the school community. Banker, accountant, doctor were contacted by the students through their parents.
