Deployment preparation
Tue, 23 Dec 2008 06:27:44

So this summer we're gonna deploy a few thousand XO-s in around 15 schools, in around 5 districts in Nepal. How are we preparing for it?

The first question might be: what do you need?

  • software infrastructure
  • a well functioning, customized XO image
  • a good plan to set up networks for these schools
  • money
  • people to go to these schools and have the knowledge to set up the schoolservers, the network, train the teachers and pour their knowledge into a local person, who can troubleshoot and will be our contact when we upgrade or something goes wrong beyond their control

These five items might be a good starting point for a blog series, and darn it, they are. In the next weeks I'll write a bit on all of them, except for the last one, because there's already enough written on them over on the OLE Nepal blog. See 'Deploying Volunteers' and 'The Intern Experience'. I'll link to the items in this post when they are written.
