Wikipedia is the largest open education resource in the world, yet right now the obvious barrier to entry is the need for an Internet connection. The goal of the Wikimedia movement at large is to make knowledge freely available to all of humanity; currently, however, the content knowledge to less than 33% of the world. In order to achieve the greatest scale of impact possible, Wikimedia is intentionally focusing on the largest demographic segment of the world in order to address the steadily increasing digital divide. The offline work is geared to expand the reach of the collective knowledge and broaden participation in the project particularly focusing on bringing access to the information to secondary schools.
