Agilix Labs, Inc. announced the extension of learning solutions to unserved and underserved markets with the introduction of its GoCourse Schoolmate product, a self-contained client-server learning system that supports education initiatives in situations and environments with limited or non-existent Internet connectivity.
“This represents an extension of our GoCourse platform to address the needs of the 95% of the Earth’s population that falls outside the reach of broadband access,” said Curt Allen, CEO of Agilix Labs. “Emerging markets will for the first time enjoy an eLearning experience that isn’t limited by the unavailability of Internet access.”
I know several of the people at the company, and they’re all great and they actually care. But it’s rare to see personal interest and commitment translate into dollars spent and product launched within a “for-profit” company. Kudos to the guys and gals at Agilix.
Anyway, it makes me wonder… is the future of open education taking the online offline?
