KiosKU Grant Proposal

2014




Abstract

With the advent of distance education among Kansas Regents Institutes, more students are opting into
eLearning courses and online educational modules. These eLearning courses contain a rich variety of
multimedia content, which often requires high-speed Internet. However, only a quarter of Kansas
residents have access to “fixed Internet service” with the ability to efficiently stream audio visual
materials (Lefler, 2013). This grant application seeks to address the issue of access to quality distance
education by developing a KiosKU program in collaboration with the University of Kansas. This project
will build on existing technologies to create innovative kiosks in rural and underserved communities,
which will disseminate educational resources and provide access to those individuals striving to further
their education.
