The WiderNet Project is in the process of developing an off-line education information server designed specifically for the corrections environment.
We are seeking partners and deployment sites for this innovative way to deliver information and an Internet-like experience to incarcerated populations. The focus of the collection will be resources for vocational training, GED, and re-entry skills, especially in information technology and information literacy.
