In an ideal world, online education would reach users through robust, reliable, broadband service networks. However, in many places around the globe, these types of networks are unavailable.
LearningsSpots has an innovative answer this problem.
The LearningSpots solution offers an “Internet-like experience” to support online learning without the student requiring an actual Internet connection.
LearningSpots has achieved this by integrating several partner technologies.
Users with smartphones, tablets or computers can engage with the 'online like' education content, without Internet connectivity required, at the location where the students meet and connect to LearningSpots.
Why We Do It
According to UNESCO, there are globally over 263 million children, over a quarter of them pre-adolescent, that are not attending any type of education. The majority of these children live in areas of the world where access to the Internet is non-existent, or if available, unaffordable. If online education could somehow be made available, these children would still have no digital smart device, such as a tablet or a laptop, to access it.
LearningSpots is a combination of content creation, satellite delivery, and local Wi-Fi hotspot technologies, seamlessly to create a world-class learning opportunity for many locations that have this need.
LearningSpots enables students to have a really cool, multimedia experience, in a remote location, with the lowest possible cost, and with the highest potential for user engagement and success.
A satellite is the most price competitive and quickly deployable method to reach wide geographic areas. The local LearningSpots equipment is easy to set-up and has a low cost to install and operate.
There is a need to make educational content available to the over 2 billion people living in the most remote parts of the world. LearningSpots bridges the digital divide with its innovative approach to deliver a meaningful online experience to anywhere a satellite can reach. The potential outcome is to enhance the quality of life of many.
