The "online learning revolution" has generated excitement about the potential for broad, free access to educational resources. One of the greatest barriers is approximately half of the world still lacks Internet access. Countries with the least Internet access are the same countries with the least access to quality education in general, including fewer qualified teachers per student and fewer educational materials.
Learning Equality's projects help to bridge the digital divide by providing these low-resource communities with access to digital content normally accessed online. It also makes it easier for educators all over the world to utilize these materials by providing tools to support personalized learning and advanced content management, so that content can be organized, aligned to a local curriculum, and even authored and uploaded.
This innovation intends to benefit both learners and educators alike in a wide variety of contexts such as rural schools, refugee camps, orphanages, non-formal school systems, and prison systems.
Learning Equality is committed to enabling every person in the world to realize their right to a quality education by building technology and tools with a primary emphasis on being usable and effective in some of the most resource-constrained contexts on earth, through supporting the creation, adaptation and distribution of open educational resources, and creating supportive tools for innovative pedagogy.
1. Kolibri, an offline, lightweight distributed application that Learners, Coaches and Administrators use to interact with content. For educators, it supports differentiated instruction with the ability to group students together and assign groups of students exams and specific sets of content.
2. Kolibri Studio, a web-based tool for curriculum management that gives users full control over the organization of their educational materials. Educators can explore pre-organized libraries of open educational resources, and bundle, tag, differentiate, re-order, and distribute their content into custom channels, as well as create exercises.
3. Kolibri Toolkit, a customizable set of resources to support understanding how to use Kolibri and Kolibri Studio in a diverse set of contexts, including pedagogical and technical guidance for incorporating Kolibri into an educational program and creating effective learning environments. The Toolkit is what supports a do-it-yourself model for use of Kolibri so that users have resources to support on improving the incorporation of Kolibri into learning environments.
