Great on a tablet PC!

We wanted our pupils to use their tablet PCs in our geography lessons but we found there was a shortage of good resources to use with them. So we started making web pages that can be used in lessons that were accessed through the tablet's browser. What do you think? How can we do this better? Drop us an email to let us know.
