I applaud the idea, but I think the roadblock is not the issue of
on-line vs off-line access. We need to actually author the material.
Then we can distribute it in many ways.

One idea from the early days of Sugar that never got implemented is
that the children could author help and share it with there classmates
in the mesh. Plus, we don't have much in terms of facilities for
teachers to share their lessons and experiences -- what works and what

I don't think we need to provide kids (or teachers) much re how to use
most activities. Where they need the help is how to use the activities
for learning. IMHO, that should be the focus.
