The country course is in it's very last stages of completion.   The first 50 days (out of 300) is finalized and has been sent around and many families are already enjoying the results of this big team effort.

Wanting to share this on BrillKids, as it's a Little Reader course and this is where the team got together, I've uploaded content for a demo course to the library, free for anyone to download and have a look.  The demo includes all the flashcards, fact slides, games and other audio for the first 50 days' lessons, but it does not include any videos (simply because they are too big to upload to the BK library.)

Getting this demo imported into your Little Reader will take a bit of work, because you need to download and import 22 separate files (again, this is because of the file size limit,)  but to people who love Littler Reader, I really think this will be worth your while.
 
If you would like this 50 day video-free country course demo, here's how you go about it:

First you need to make sure you have the latest version of LR.  You can check your own version under Tools -> Software Information, and compare it to this version http://www.brillkids.com/user/acct-mgmt-purchases.php/Little-Reader-Software.php, where you can also download the latest LR update.

Second you need to download and import these 21 files from the library:
http://library.brillkids.com/library.php?cid=1&criteria=Country+Course+Demo (Take note, part 20 is on the second page)

And finally, download and import the attached file.

It is down here in small print, it says, "Country Course Demo.lrc"

Hi all,

I am so happy we are able to share this Encyclopedic Knowledge Demo with all of you! Like MamaofWill mentioned, with this download you will get full 50 days of lessons of our Light (Video-free) Version. Each day actually has two lesson sessions, which cover different groups of countries. So if you are a busy working parent, who only can do 1 session a day it can last you for whole 100 days  yes

Well, of course if your kids are anything like mine, they will probably persuade you to watch "just one more"  nowink ! Yes, we've started the course ourselves and all of my 3 kids ( 4 yo, 3 yo and 1 yo) find it very interesting and engaging.

Games help to reinforce what they just learned and keep it challenging as well. Even though each lesson has enough information in itself, we usually end up spending some time after the lesson, looking at the maps, reading our atlas books or talking about those countries. It is fun!

Those of you with Lite Version would not see the anthems videos that were done for this course. But I just have to mention them!  MamaofWill done an amazing job compiling iconic images for each (!) country and putting them in a video to the national anthem music. Each of 40 countries in this course has custom made video like that, and it serves as another powerful multisensory learning and memory tool.

For those of you who were not a part of our team, working on the course, you will be downloading this fully functional Demo Version from here, according to the instructions above. Please, in addition to 20 category files that you will be downloading from the library, do not forget to download the actual course file, which you will find as an attachment in the original post above.

It is a small file, but without it, you will only have individual categories in your Little Reader,  while with it magic happens    -- those categories will be organized into a course!  yes  So make sure you download it and import it into your Little Reader!

And last but not least, we are planning to create a number of courses like this in this coming year, so let us know if you would like to keep updated and become a part of a team  yes

Happy New Year full of awesome EL experiences!

Thank you very much Skylark for your comments about the course and all the time you've put into making this course happen!

Yes, as Skylark said, it's also very important to download the attached file and import it, it's a very small download, but without it your content is not organized as a course.

It is down here in small print, it says, "Country Course Demo.lrc"

Thank you so much for sharing this with those of us who didn't contribute! It's very generous considering all the hard work everyone put in & the organisation required. The course is really well done, very professional looking & a tribute to you all working together. LR is so easy to use... click yes to import... yes to make it into a course & voila... it's done.

These kind of EK courses are right up our street & I think you should seriously consider selling the next ones you do yes 

Thanks again
Lois

P.S. I noticed that each file had around 230 downloads but only a few people had downloaded the .lrc file at the end of your post to make it into a course... Don't miss it folks!!

Thank you so much Iois1!  You are right, the categories don't make a lot of sense without the course file, I also wonder about the 230 people who only downloaded the categories, but I suppose they'll still make use of the files in their own way. 

If you would like the videos, just inbox me with your email address and I'll give you a link to download them, but be warned, it's a 1.5 Gb download, but to my opinion it really makes the course more enjoyable for the little ones.

Thank you very much for the compliments! 

Little Reader makes me enthusiastic about group projects like this, not only is it a fantastic learning tool, but the app is also perfect for collaboration.  Different members can work on the same slides and categories at the same time and their efforts can be combined on import, meaning members don't have to wait on each other to continue working.

Personally, I've used LR to teach my little one tons and tons of things over the last 2 years and I can't imagine our lives without it.  Thank you for such a wonderful learning app KL, it's truly the work of genius.

 happy

AMAZING work, thank you so much.I hope there will be MANY more courses to come organized by you and with contributions from MANY MANY members because
a) you are altruistic and want to help out anyway
b) you are not and then you must be interested too because I have NEVER EVER seen a project were the "return on invested time" was so HIGH than in this project with a 300 days' course of SUPERB quality!!!

Thank you so much for your initiative, committment, patience (with so many collaborators with different IT knowledge..) and ideas to get such a wonderful course together. Karma to MamaofWill and Skylark!!
