Pathagar for pilot schools

Pathagar is a digital library server that follows the Open Publication and Distribution System (OPDS) specification. We are working to incorporate such a library at each of the pilot schools. The idea is to provide a library locally over Wi-Fi, so that the school and its surrounding neighborhood can get access to books as and when needed, without Internet access. If Internet access is available, then we can federate multiple Pathagar libraries across the pilot schools.

Resources, curation and dissemination

Some interesting challenges. Where do we get digital information resources? How do we pick from an ocean of wealth? How do we get it to people who need it the most? A big "Thank you" to Craig Perue for inviting me to the Ministry of Education, Government of Jamaica. I presented information around exploring new possibilities around Open Education Resources for Jamaica. We hope we can further access to information to places that need it the most.
