Kolibri is specially designed to provide offline access to a curated and openly licensed educational content library. Available in dozens of languages, the Kolibri libraries are designed to support a well-rounded curriculum, including both formal educational materials--such as lessons and assessments--and exploratory materials, such as books, games, and simulations.

How does Kolibri reach the disconnected?

  1. "Seeding" a Device: Kolibri installers, updates, and content can be downloaded once to a device in an area that has an Internet connection
  2. Peer-to-Peer Distribution: That "seeded" device can then share new content and updates with other devices over an offline local network.

  3. Last Mile via "Sneakernet": To reach the most remote communities, a device can be carried by foot to share installers, updates, and content with other devices over local networks.

Languages: Arabic, Bengali, Bulgarian, Burmese, Chewa, Farsi, English, French, Gujarati, Hindi, Korean, Marathi, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish, Swahili, Telugu, Urdu, Vietnamese and Yoruba.
