Technical notes

• To work, WikiFundi needs a small portable local server (such as a Raspberry PI) that provides a local wifi network that users can then connect to and work on their articles.

• The WikiFundi software is open licenced and can be downloaded for free at anytime, and then installed on your own server. Download link: https://bit.ly/WIA_WikiFundi

• You need to install (‘’flash’’) the WikiFundi file onto a microSD card. We recommend the BalenaEtcher software.

• The standard WikiFundi set-up requires around 25 GB (buy your SD card with this in mind).

• The interface and the templates that enhance the look and feel of WikiFundi are available in three languages: English, French and Spanish. Within the wiki pages, you may use other languages if you prefer to.

• The Raspberry PI can be powered using a powerpack battery, if electricity is not available.

• The standard set-up includes many OER support materials. All those resources can also be accessed online for free at this link: https://bit.ly/WF_OfflineRecs

• It is possible to download larger packages that include many more offline resources provided by Kiwix, e.g. Wikipedia offline, Wikiquote, Wikisource, TEDx Talks, Gutenberg Library. Those packages need to be prepared on demand.
