Executive Summary

Online Vidyalaya is part of a 2014 initiative called “Internet – Past and Future – The Tool for Education Revolution,” which sought to bring digital literacy and e-learning tools to underserved students in the mountainous region of Nepal. Training was provided to 43 teachers and 360 students from grades 8, 9, and 10 in ten schools in rural Nepal. The project also provided a web application, onlinevidyalaya.org (meaning “online school” in Nepalese), which offered students e-books and curated lessons from YouTube that would be advantageous to the students. Online Vidyalaya is an example of using technology to increase digital literacy and access to materials for students in remote, under-resourced regions.
