Many students throughout Ethiopia have minimal access to the required government-approved textbooks and supplementary material necessary for success in their educational experience at a secondary level. Access to the internet can be sporadic and expensive. School and community libraries may be few and far between and those libraries may not have current or relevant resources. One alternative is to establish computer labs in the schools that utilize Chromebook technology and a dedicated server that is loaded with relevant and current resources, including the government-approved curriculum and plasma videos. The authors will describe the successes and challenges of setting up Chromebook labs in both schools and community libraries, including those without access to the internet, and in some cases, to stable electricity.
