Rwanda Pilot: Bringing eLearning to disadvantaged populations
By creating a device that has eLearning software, video content, and streaming built-in, learners can access quality content via a Wi-Fi hotspot. This removes the need for internet access for both the provider and student. The LearnBox also has a built-in power supply that can be recharged with a solar panel. This was necessary in Rwanda; power can be unreliable particularly in rural areas.
Why we selected Rwanda?
Rwanda was an ideal project site. It is known in Africa as a proof of concept country. Like many African countries internet pentation is low due to cost and availability.
Training Workshop: August 26th 2021
We have successfully completed the first LearnBox training workshop at the East Gate Hotel is Ngoma, Rwanda. The workshop brought together teachers, IT proffessionals, NGOs and local eLearning providers to learn about the features of the LearnBox and discuss the challenges facing students in Rwanda.
