LEARNMORE - From the team who brought you the award-winning Lawbore™ site!

What is Learnmore?

An ever-growing collection of educational online articles, tutorials, videos, presentations, FAQs and examples for the hard-working law student.

Who made the site content?

Created in 2007, Learnmore was the brainchild of Emily Allbon, Law Librarian at City University.

In 2010 it was time for a new look and exciting new content, so the whole appearance and content of Learnmore was overhauled. This new updated version is the result of a collaboration between Emily and Sanmeet Kaur, Lecturer in Law at the City Law School.

Additional contributor credits are to be found on the article pages themselves.

Currently public editing and contribution of articles is not allowed, but if you would like to contribute an article, slideshow or video to Learnmore, please contact Emily Allbon.

Who built and illustrated it?

Learnmore was built by freelance programmer Howard Richardson.

The illustrations are by the very talented Kat Marshello.

What about the Talking Essays?

The Talking Essays feature was also programmed by Howard Richardson at Sequential. The essays and audio commentaries are the work of the individual students and lecturers credited on the page.

Whose software contributes to the site?

The site itself is mixture of hand-written HTML and PHP and a customised version of the open-source Mediawiki - the software behind the popular Wikipedia site.

The front-page and Red Pen talking essays use the Jquery Javascript framework.

The flash video player used on some articles is the JW-FLV player, licenced under Creative Commons.

The HTML5 audio player used in the Red Pen talking essays is JPlayer.

The talking slideshow presentations have been created using Articulate and Adobe Presenter software and run using Adobe Flash. Additional animated presentations have been creating using the Prezi service.
