The world of educational content is divided, leaving one billion people behind. Closing the "content gap" means millions of people will gain access to information in their local language. This can include basic yet life changing information like farming techniques, weather information, health tips, math and language books.
We are creating this content, for over 300 local languages in Africa and Asia for the very first time.
Utilizing Big Data and Automated Authoring technologies means TotoGeo can curate locally appropriate data for different users. These data sets include:
With a small investment in human resources TotoGEO can add translation capabilities for any language.
Some of the languages we are creating content for include:
Knowledge is only impactful when it is in a format accessible to the user. We find the right format for every scenario.
We make it possible to quickly and cost-effectively gather and widely disseminate educational materials in any language or format, narrowing knowledge and resource gaps.
We create customized radio issue packs for rural radio broadcasters who don’t have research and production teams to make their own content.
Rather than incurring costs to setup and manage information portals, NGOs can adopt and customize TotoGEO’s information portals.
We are using TotoGEO to enhance student’s interaction with farmers. The students who have piloted it in the call center on the smart phones find it very exciting.
We have aggregated and harmonized a huge number of data sets from a variety of different sources, allowing researchers to search, study, and compare data all in one place. Researchers can share information with their academic counterparts much faster.
For academics and researchers of agriculture in Bangladesh, totoGEO can provide a platform for capturing their knowledge and disseminating it through different channels to end users.
Governments with limited resources can access a vast quantity of information, in many styles and make equivalent resources available to farmers, educators, policy makers, etc.
TotoGEO provides portable reference material in local languages, with localized product names, so extension workers don’t have to try remembering everything on their own
Through our dashboard we release raw data such as weather reports and agricultural information that enable others to build sustainable solutions. Entrepreneurs can build businesses using these databases, profiting in the process of delivering essential information to those who need it most.
TotoGEO’s proposition of creating a wiki-agri of the world that is validated and trusted as a common source of information, addresses one of out main challenges.
