Hi there,

I'm Arun Scaria from India, final year Computer science and engineering
student at Model engineering college. Last yea,r I successfully completed
my GSOC project under Fedora( SUDO support for SSSD). This year I would
like to do aomething challenging and productive.
 While searching for ideas and organisations of my taste, I found Inclusive
Design Institute's ideas page. I liked the project ' Google Apps Module for
ATutor'. I think this idea can make the ATutor software, a most wanted
learning software as the Google based services are extensively used among
students and teachers. I hope this module is a striving need for the
ATutor, because the Google products like Google docs, calender, YouTube etc
can be used effectively in the process of learning. The students and
teachers can make their course management process easy, if they can
directly import their Google based documents to ATutor.  Also, I think this
is a golden opportunity for me to work on challenging web based projects.

I have fair background of PHP and good understanding of google services and
various APIs. Last few days, I was reading the ATutor module developer. And
I'm ready to submit a sample module if that is acceptable as a proof of my
skills. Last year my senior, Mr. Anrup Ravindran did his GSOC project
'ATutor Calendar Module' under your guidance. I hope he can help me in the
process of learning Atutor module development. I read the module
development guide at And I
started work on my module to show some sample demos before the actual
project. Before submitting the patch. I would like to introduce myself.
That is why I made this email.

I have developed and administered a few websites for my college activities.
