Instructions for Team IT
  1. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take the existing set of 86 topics and convert into a balanced set of links on Information Technology which will give adequate and balanced exposure to all aspects of IT, both Indian and international, for Indian School students. You are required to delete links considered irrelevant to Indian context, and add relevant links. Your upper limit of articles is 200. After this mission is over and the compilation is made, this page will self-destruct and a new mission will be offered to develop the set of selected links further.
  2. If a supertopic is placed in a collapsible box, it does not imply finalisation or being frozen etc. Please feel free to edit those contents also.
