School Server (LS) - $625
ARES content can be accessed by any computing device that includes a standard web browser and wireless connectivity. The client devices that we recommend and have tested with include:
In order to enable easy and reliable access to ARES content we can optionally provide high quality, low cost 11.6" Windows notebooks as part of the ARES system package. The pricing will depend on volume, but will generally range from $175 - $200 per device. The photo below is a sample notebook:
We highly recommend the purchase of a battery based projector for use in situations where the teacher is using ARES for a classroom lecture. We have used a very reliable device from AAXA (Model P700). It can be ordered from Amazon.com and other suppliers for around $400 each (not including shipping.) More information can be provided as needed.
The core of the ARES Server is built upon the excellent collection of content from RACHEL, by WorldPossible.org, with significant additions focused on east Africa/Kenya - a total of 190gb of educational content and school administration tools.
ARES also contains a wide range of adult education materials focused on life in remote rural villages.
