As one of the world’s largest archipelago countries, Indonesia faces significant challenges in distributing wealth including basic infrastructures such as electricity and internet to some of its most remote islands. Due to its remoteness, people in this remote area mostly lived in poverty, which also lead to poor education quality. The digital library based on the Raspberry Pi “minicomputer” was created to address this issue. This device can store more than 2500 educational movies and e-books that can be viewed offline and has been demonstrated to be reliable even in areas with unpredictable electricity.

Product Uniqueness

Research found that interest in reading particularly among young people in remote villages and area in Indonesia is significantly lower than those who have facilities to access reading books as in urban and cities. It is a digital library that can be equally functional in remote areas with no internet connection and has limited or unstable electric power. It was built by using Raspberry Pi with more than 2500 e-books and videos installed in it.
