In August 2006, Gloucestershire Head Teacher, Nigel Steele was working on his computer when he was inspired with an idea that is changing the way people search for information on the web.
The “graphical directory” started with the idea that an imaged-based presentation of information – organised simply on one screen page – could be a new and exciting way of searching for information. Colourful logos and images could be used to connect consumers, quickly and easily, with a large number of local websites, just through the simple click of the mouse.
So what is Quoakle?
It’s the innovative, graphical, UK Web Directory – providing a quick link to local websites.
The first part to be launched in September 2006 was the Gloucestershire Directory
Quoakle’s innovative, online directory isn’t text-based but graphical. It uses colourful logos and images to connect users, quickly and easily, with a large number of local websites. Conveniently organised into counties, topics and categories, Quoakle helps you see at a glance exactly what you want.
What is a Quoaklecard?
A Quoaklecard is an ‘online business card’, a smart, single webpage that holds relevant information about your business or organisation. Quoaklecards are designed for small – medium businesses that want a simple, low cost website.
