- Content drawn solely from KA, aligned to US standards
- No easy way to integrate new content sources
- No way for end users to adapt and align curricula to match local needs
- All, or a subset, of KA content can be loaded onto a local installation of the server
- Ecosystem of public channels, aligned to multiple standards
- New content can be directly uploaded, or imported via API
- Simple web-based alignment tools enable forking, importing across channels, and drag-drop rearranging
- Any (or multiple) content channels can be loaded onto a local server running Kolibri, to enable local access
- Kolibri also consists of two separate components, which is a change from KA Lite’s one component.
The first component is the Kolibri Content Curation system. This is a central cloud server that pulls content from many sources (including uploading your own, if you wish!) such as Khan Academy, CK-12, Tessa and others. These different content areas are organized into multiple content Channels.
The second component is the installable Kolibri application, which is where the teachers and learners will access and interact with the content. Kolibri is installed onto a local device and imports your desired channels of content. Users then interact with Kolibri offline, directly from that device or from a nearby client device connected to it.
