The unsung heroes are out there in several parts of the Earth, to stop poaching and merciless killing of tigers. The tiger rangers are distributed in five different countries mainly - China, Cambodia, Nepal, Malaysia and Indonesia. A widget was created to enable commoners to convey their messages and concerns to the tiger rangers. Anyone can send as many as postcards, e-cards and messages to encourage and inspire the rangers to conserve the natural heritage.
A slider is part of this widget; the slider shows the WWF rangers playing their various roles as forest guards, park wardens or field enforcement officers. On clicking the image of the ranger in the slider, the tiger ranger's details and his work profile appears. The option to send a postcard or mailing an e-card to the ranger is also available. These can be sent in English or the national language of the country the ranger belongs to.
This widget also enables one to see how many cards were mailed and e-cards were sent. The messages sent in the 'Cards4tigers' section can be seen on the website. The message can be shared on various social networking sites.
This application also casts away allegories about critical thinking. Critical thinking gives you an edge to stand out in the crowd and to maintain your uniqueness that will outlive others. Critical thinking is a secret tool that makes you analyse, evaluate, synthesize, and understand fallacies, inferences, argumentation and many more. This helps in making the best decision in everyday life.A storyline, using a blend of different senses - audio, visual, animation, sound effects and text, enables people to retain the learning for a longer period of time. Mindmaps enable the entire course to be pinned on the board for quick recap and recall.
As there are multiple levels of expertise in a computer game and so are of thinking. Once aware of the various levels, you can choose the appropriate level of thinking based on their applicability. The awareness about these concepts and applying them in your day to day decision making process helps in separating facts from fiction and also to draw accurate conclusions.

Communication through Writing is categorized in two parts. Firstly, foundational that showcases the various aspects of effective writing. Secondly, advanced that tells about the report writing techniques.

Mindmaps are made a part of it as it is the best way to present a clear glimpse of the whole course all together. Case studies and real time scenarios presented in each of the courses to analyse their position in the same situation. Rich images and visuals create an easy learning pattern for the trainee to retain the course for a longer period of time.
Few sets of assessment are also incorporated to evaluate the learner's performance before and after the course. The voice-over narration creates a clear understanding of the course. The clarity helps in bringing about more attention to listen and makes it more interactive.
