      Description

      Most of online (webbased) interaction is via forms – a text-heavy approach. Young children find it easier to paint and draw.

      If we can switch the WYSISWYG HTML editors in forms with a paint here facility, then we make webbased tools easier for them.

      Technical notes:

      • Moodle is using a WYSIWYG editor called TinyMCE - that is a possible integration point.
      • Implementation idea: write a vector-based "paint" facility in JS that runs in the browser.
      • Implementation idea: write a vector or bitmap paint facility in Flash, bearing in mind that OLPC ships Gnash instead of Adobe's Flash.
      • Performance matters - the OLPC XO has a relatively low power CPU, so image editing has to be tuned / optimised to be responsive.

      The complexity of this project is high.

      This feature idea comes from the OLPC project – see http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XS_Project_Ideas#Moodle
