    Since many of the school sites EVCO serves do not have internet access, EVCO has partnered with World Possible to give communities access to an internet-like experience.  This server, Remote Area Computer Hotspots for Education and Learning (RACHEL), provides students and other users the ability to find information, use digital tools, or watch videos on networked computers.

    RACHEL provides access to nearly any academic resource available on the web.  With educational content equivalent to 50,000 books, it includes tutorials for math and science, Kahn Academy videos, MIT courses, and more. RACHEL’s capacity turns these remote, rural labs into research centers for students and adults in the surrounding communities.
