Today, Facebook announced a new initiative called SocialEDU wants to bring collaborative online education to the nation of Rwanda. Part of Facebooks previously announced Internet.org project, the new initiative will enlist the help of Nokia for hardware support, local carrier Airtel for data subsidy, and the Rwandan government for financing logistics. The end result will be a simple application designed by Facebook to deliver a fast but meaningful education to anyone who participates in the program. The application delivering the content will be integrated into Facebook, which suggests eager Rwandans will have to sign up for Facebook before they can start to take classes.
