Description

At the Endless OS Foundation, we are concerned about the billions of people who have limited or no access to the internet, including millions of youth in the United States. Free software allows us to create empowering solutions which are uniquely catered to their situations.

For example, Endless OS uses Kolibri to deliver rich educational content to students and self-guided learners. This includes a Kolibri desktop application, which is available for everyone on Flathub and uses the GNOME platform. It also integrates tightly with Endless OS.

In this talk, we will explain our motivations for this work and how it allows us to bring offline content to learners around the world, and we will discuss some of the technology choices we made.
