University life is an exciting time for students around the world. Unfortunately, Information and Communication Technology [ICT] students around the world don’t have equal access to the same resources. While students in the United States enjoy computer labs and state-of-the-art equipment, students in the Democratic Republc of Congo lack computers and current computer science coding material, making them ill-equipped to market themselves on a global scale.
Because of this, university students in the DR Congo graduate with a college degree in ICT but rarely have the opportunity to work on computers. But United Methodist Communications and Inveneo are working together to change that.
By setting up a server installed and loaded with educational content that students in developing countries can access when they don’t have reliable Internet connectivity, university students are able to access vast amounts of reliable and relatable educational material and compete globally.
