World sensation: the Bible OL Pi3 App is here!
Software engineer and PhD candidate Judith
Gottschalk, Nuremberg, today announced the good news for Biblical language learning this Christmas!
Bible Online Learner can now be made available for global learners on a cheap and fast server!
Years of planning and experimentation has been successful and we are soon ready to roll it out in pilot projects.
The new server, the Bible OL Pi3 is a Raspberry Pi 3, a credit card sized mini-computer, which can be used as a small server and access point. It hosts Bible Online Learner developed over a decade and accessible through the internet. The new Bible OL Pi3 offers cheap, yet fast server support, with or without internet access, and it can support a dozen students at the same time.
Our solution takes Emdros at work in global learning initiatives. Ulrik Sandborg-Petersen, the inventor of this powerful system for storing and retrieving linguistic data in texts has assisted us in developing this new solution. He always had the vision that the usefulness of Emdros transcends linguistic research – now a linguistic application can be applied for learning in rural coutrysides with expensive, unreliable or non-existent internet.
Judith Gottschalk was selected for personnel secondment by Brot für die Welt from 2015 till
2016. They provided training for her as an add-on to her
PhD-program and as preparation for her work with the NGO in order to get deep
insights in development work and to be able to work in the field. The Bible OL Pi3 is an important step forward in her training for global projects.
