Kolibri - what's behind the name?

Developed for low-resource and low-connectivity contexts, the flexibility of Kolibri allows it to support learners across learning environments and be adaptable based on unique learning needs. Kolibri means ‘hummingbird’ in dozens of languages, and hummingbirds are similarly small and lightweight. Some other comparisons we draw:

  • They can traverse borders to reach remote areas
  • They share their voices openly
  • They pollinate and Kolibri does the same by seeding devices and spreading knowledge

We wanted to build something that is useful for as many people as possible, no matter where they come from.
