Open Source Education Project- for Schools/Regions Without Internet Access
In a great number of schools, in regions throughout the world, students often gain access to computers far before gaining access to the Internet- due to the infrastructure necessary to install Internet access in remote locations. Unfortunately, this severely restricts the amount of educational resources available to these students. Therefore, our intiative is testing a new solution to this problem- downloading the web’s major educational resources (e.g. Khan Academy, Wikipedia, Instructables, digital textbooks, etc…) to a series of DVDs/CDs, and shipping this DVD/CD series to any school or community which seeks access to the Internet’s tremendous educational capacity, however does not have direct access to the Internet. The content of this DVD/CD series will be customized according to the requests of the relevant community/school. If you represent such a community or school, I highly encourage you to send us a message describing your situation and the ages/grade levels of your students. We are able to provide content for ages ranging from elementary school to university. Please note that unfortunately, we are not in a position to provide computers- these must be obtained separately and must contain either a CD/DVD player or a USB port (preferably a CD/DVD player). There will be no charge associated with any portion of this process, including shipping.
