Access to Online Learning Without the Internet   As an educator at K12 and university levels, I have seen the difference access to digital resources makes in students’ lives. However, in rural areas, broadband access remains on our “to-do” list, while students wait for its arrival. And, in urban settings, even reduced monthly fees for internet service sometimes is not enough for families. Further, unhoused students are forced to navigate to libraries and coffee shops which either have limited hours of operations or are too noisy to concentrate. My startup company, Away, Inc., seeks to solve some of these challenges with our break-through product the “Offline Campus.” The Offline Campus is a new learning platform that allows students to engage in multimedia content, take assessments, earn a certificate, all without internet access. The Offline Campus provides students maximum flexibility for learning off the grid.
