The “Digital Library” is open!

Several thousand items of educational content are now accessible for free, in a number of languages, at https://bibliotheque.fondationorange.com/en. Aimed at both teachers and anyone looking to learn or acquire new skills, they cover a range of educational topics from school level to university and vocational training.

The content made available in this Digital Library has been provided by Orange Foundation partners aiming to provide access to education for people in need or people who do not have access to traditional educational resources: Khan Academy & Bibliothèque Sans Frontières, Wikimédia Ch, Education & Numérique, Aflatoun, Codev… to name some of the better-known partners, and already over a hundred contributors altogether. This number is set to grow, as free content can be added to the Digital Library in a participatory mode.

Digital education is a priority for the Orange Foundation. It has a significant impact on equal opportunities, in Europe and Africa, for young people not in education, women without qualifications, and pupils with no access to text books.

Online or via off line mini servers connected to tablets, this educational content already contributes to Solidarity FabLabs, Digital Centres and Digital Schools - all programmes supported by the Orange Foundation and its charitable partners in Europe and in Africa.
