Kolibri

Kolibri is Learning Equality's open-source platform that makes digital educational materials available to students without internet access in low-resource communities such as rural schools, refugee camps, orphanages, non-formal school systems, and prison systems. 

Installation and Working

  1. Kolibri installers, updates, and content can be downloaded to a device in an area that has an Internet connection .
  2. That "seeded" device can then share new content and updates with other devices over an offline local network. 
  3. A device can be carried by foot to share installers, updates, and content with other devices over local networks.



 Kolibri uses a video compression technique that converts pen strokes and objects in a blackboard-style video into scalable vector objects. Kolibri comes with tools such as a coach dashboard, exam creation, exercises, assignment of content for differentiated instruction, and a recommendation tool that displays steps based on a learner's history, progress, and goals.Devices running Kolibri can directly connect with each other over a local Wi-Fi network.

Kolibri Studio

Kolibri Studio is a cloud-based platform that gives users control over the organization of their educational material. Users can also bundle, tag, differentiate, re-order, and distribute their content offline as custom channels. The platform also offers pre-organized libraries of open educational resources.
