Kolibri focuses on addressing seven challenges to ensure more equitable access to quality education for all learners, even in the world's most marginalized communities, including those in crisis. These seven challenges are; Lack of easy-to-find, useful, and affordable teaching and learning materials; Limited support for educators to enable student-centered learning; Large class sizes with few pathways for supporting diverse individual and group needs; Lack of community ownership in the design and integration of edtech into learning spaces; Barriers to affordable technology infrastructure and reliable Internet access, preventing engagement with digital learning tools and resources; Limited sense of possibilities and constraints around innovative use of edtech in low-resource environments; and Legacies of oppressive structures in education that perpetuate inequities in learning.
Kolibri is an end-to-end suite of open-source tools, content, and support materials, designed for offline-first teaching and learning.
Kolibri is designed for the needs of teachers and learners within the infrastructure, digital literacy skills, and available digital learning resources that may be found in places with unreliable, uneven or no Internet connectivity.
3M+ learners access quality learning opportunities without the Internet across the world.
Kolibri is currently installed in 220+ countries and territories through an organic, do-it-yourself adoption model, and it is iteratively improved based on feedback from a global user community. Learning Equality works directly with organizations in a subset of those countries, including Uganda, Jordan, Libya, Honduras, Ghana, Bangladesh, Tanzania, and the DRC through strategic partnerships with UN agencies, governments, and NGOs. In 2022, they plan to expand their efforts in Mexico and Guyana.
