This may seem like a small thing, but I don't think it is. The article describes the distribution of the Opon Imo (knowledge tablet) to studnets in Osum State, in Nigeria. "On each of the tablets are  preloaded e-books on all subjects that are offered at secondary school level, video lectures and tutoring notes, as well as a test platform for students’ self assessment to monitor their own comprehension and mastery of the subject." Learning benmefits are touted, but also, so are the savings to the Nigerian education system.
