Delivering culturally relevant digital stories from around the world
CALIFORNIA & NEW YORK, Feb 9, 2018- Nucleos Inc. is proud to announce a new collaboration with Pearl Dream Inc. to enable offline access to DreamAfrica educational digital stories and multimedia apps. Nucleos will add DreamAfrica to the PortableCloud App Store to provide full functionality to users with limited or no Internet connectivity. Nucleos has a growing collection of digital resources (OER and fee-based) available on PortableCloud to provide additional learning opportunities for disconnected students around the globe.
The collaboration addresses gaps in access to digital educational tools in regions of Africa with bandwidth and connectivity constraints. DreamAfrica combines traditional African storytelling and digital materials to supplement students’ learning experience. Nucleos will deliver DreamAfrica App through PortableCloud App Store so students anywhere can access engaging and educational multimedia stories in a safe and secure local learning environment. DreamAfrica has published hundreds of digital stories from partners like the African Animation Network, East African Education Publishers, Bino & Fino, Wikitongues and even children.
“Nucleos helps us meet our customer needs of real offline access in schools and institutions like public schools and libraries that was echoed to us at teacher trainings and elearning Africa consultations. Even with limited to no internet connection, DreamAfrica will deliver the same unique and dynamic content offering for every child with the parent or teacher support.” Says Brenda Lare, Community Manager, DreamAfrica in Nairobi, Kenya.
Nucleos will work with local partners alongside the Pearl Dream to determine the effectiveness of delivering digital content to disconnected classrooms. Schools will be able to easily integrate DreamAfrica by installing the app from PortableCloud within a local network. Students can connect to a local server or computer through WiFi, regardless of Internet connectivity and start reading. “We’re excited to work with DreamAfrica to provide stories to schools across Africa regardless of infrastructure constraints. Their innovative approach to source great content across Africa is a great solution for students,” explains Noah Freedman, CEO of Nucleos.
Here are some examples of what will be offered through DreamAfrica:
