Beginner Contributors

A lot of the material found on this site is constructed by pairing images, sound files and text. Thus you to can contribute with own content.

Example 1

You want to present a bed time story, or some lesson of your choice, ...

Images

  1. Simply put all images (scanned hand-drawings, whatever..) into a folder
    Format: JPG format preferrably but we can convert pretty much anything)
    Size: try to maintain 4:3 ratio (eg. 200x150, 300x225, 400x300, 500x475, 600x450, 800x600, etc..) this may get relaxed in the future.

Sounds

  1. Add corresponding sound files to the same folder
    Format: MP3 preferred.

Build an index

  1. If there a filename correspondance between images and sounds (eg. 1.jpg, 1.mp3, ...) that's great.
    Images and Sounds filenames matching is not a must as some images may be used in different context and we could build a resource folder structure (library) from where these files could be referenced. In the meantime, supply a simple text file where you match the files. Use a blank line to indicate how things are paired . For example:
    Orange1.jpg,
    burtoqual.mp3

    Myschool001.jpg,
    madrassa.mp3

    ....etc...

Arabic Text

  1. If there is arabic text to go along with each page compile into a text file eg. arabic.txt, one phrase/word per line.
    You may use Notepad and save-as using Encoding = Unicode.

Pack and Mail

  1. Archive the folder into .ZIP or .RAR files
  2. Email it to support@ArabicRescue.com

If you intend to build and send a large collection please send a sample first, because we reserve the right to publish it or not.

Flash Educational Animations

  2. These need to be well behaved usually loaded into a parent MC but may be launched directly

Reusable Flash MCs

  1. Attention catchers...fly-around-type small animations. These can be used to keep kids interested in pursuing the current pages of the content they have visited.
  2. Cool controls eg. level indicators and meters geared towards kids eg. a pile of objects (cars, fruits, ...) to indicate progress or achievements during a quiz.
