Internet-in-a-Box “learning hotspots” are used in dozens of countries, to give everyone a chance, e.g. in remote mountain villages in India.
It works without internet — like a community fountain, but for the mind — wirelessly serving anyone nearby with a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
Now you too can put the internet in a box and customize it with the very best free content for your school, clinic or family!
If you have a Raspberry Pi, install a recent Internet-in-a-Box direct to your microSD card. On a Linux PC, install Internet-in-a-Box from download.iiab.io. Our free and open source software is available from github.com/iiab.
Don't forget to install OpenStreetMap and Satellite Photos for your continent or region(s). Also read our tech docs and consider our YouTube channel.
Check out “What are the best places for community support?” at FAQ.IIAB.IO with ~50 questions and answers — as you put together the best digital learning hotspot, Most Suitable For Your Community!
Internet-in-a-Box shows you the latest Content Packs installable in the languages your community needs (from online libraries like Kiwix, OER2Go, Archive.org) then takes care of all the downloading details for you!
See Mexico's live demo and our medical examples used by clinics in Asia and Africa especially, as hosted by Wikipedia.
Schools can also choose among almost 40 powerful apps for teachers and students — optionally with a complete LMS (learning management system) like Kolibri, Moodle, Nextcloud, Sugarizer or WordPress.
Internet-in-a-Box is a community product enabled by professional volunteers working side-by-side with schools, clinics and libraries around the world — and the Wikipedia community especially.
Thank you everyone for humbly being part of this OFF.NETWORK grassroots learning movement.
Please consider how you too might assist this epic effort. It's astonishing how far we've come since Internet-in-a-Box's original demo in 2013 — and how far we will go together, If You Too Can Help!
