Ok.
I would soon setup a wiki page for this particular out-reach activity,
with all the details involved.. But since i have my end semester
university examinations beginning tomorrow, i would only be uploading
all the data after 5th December. In case its urgent, I hope one of the
community members can upload the content and i shall edit it later on.

>> Opera Products and their features (Introduction to Opera Mini and the

>> Web standards and Opera's Role
>> W3C Standards and Specifications
>> Introduction to Web Development and how the Developers must be aware about

>> Resources for the students to learn more about the web and how to proceed

>> Full Preview of the Course Content - Proceeding towards a more specific
