The eLibrary Project seeks to make a difference in education by introducing essential digital resources (encyclopedias, books, training videos, etc.) to schools in remote areas where the Internet is at best spotty if not altogether unavailable.

Every eLibrary Project is a partnership between a school or an organization and the eLibrary project champions. The hardware and technologies that make up the eLibrary supports the partnership formed around the idea of technology-assisted holistic education.

HOW IT WORKS


The "product" is a stand-alone, browser-accessible repository of digital resouces: the eLibrary. Students and teachers will use a wifi access point, open the browser and point it to an offline address to access the repository. No internet connection is needed.

PROJECT CHAMPIONS


Project champions may consider "socialising" through the Tambayayong eLib Facebook group.

           


eLib CONTENTS

The initial content of the eLibrary Box are found at samplecontents.library.ph. They are primarily for K-12 instruction. Other use cases of eLib Box could mean different sets of contents, to be determined by the eLib's principals or technology providers.

The contents of Tambayayong eLibrary System (TeLS), on the other hand, are self-curated by teachers and administrators of the partner school. The initial contents may include open resource from Open Ebooks, Project Gutenberg, Many Books, Didactalia, or those sources with creative common license like Khan Academy and Ted.

Donated digital resources may also be included. The instructional need of the schools are scoped, before the contents are put together and the Tambayayong eLib gets deployed.
