Part 1: Tony Anderson is working on a very promising system to provide a wealth of educational materials to teachers and students at schools without internet access, called the Karma Learning System (http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Learn). The interface is simple to use, which will make it very useful for the Lesotho teachers. Hopefully, Tony will have this completed soon. (Caryl Bigenho and others are helping him with this as part of an online class project.)
Tony Anderson has experience with OLPC deployments in Nepal and Rwanda and is an expert at setting up school network servers for XO laptops. Tony has offered to come to Lesotho after Christmas and stay into February. He will install network servers at Nohana and Kokobe and hopefully copy lots of appropriate educational software onto the servers, install his learning management system (if it's done) and help us teach the teachers and students how to use the server and learning systems. I am very excited about this development and see it as an opportunity to vastly improve the educational value of the laptops already in Lesotho.
p.s. L2L incurred virtually no expenses for this conference because I was able to stay with friends, cost of gas was minimal (thanks to my new Kia Rio!), and I paid for all my meals.
