Degree of Innovation

Project name

Our goal

Providing a digital space for communication and training in specific locations. The main idea is to use simple, Do-It-Yourself networking, a combination of wireless technology, low-cost hardware, and free/libre/open source software (FLOSS) applications in order to give access through mobiles and laptops to user generated learning modules.

Why is this innovative

State of the art

Single-board computers such as Arduino, or Raspberry Pi, are commonly used for DiY networking purposes, since such computers are open-source, relatively cheap, have low power demands, support multiple protocols, and are portable.

DokuWiki is a wiki application licensed under GPLv2 and written in the PHP programming language. It works on plain text files and thus does not need a database. Its syntax is similar to the one used by MediaWiki used for the Wikipedia project.
