While it is certainly true that access to the Internet enhances the
learning experience, the hardware (OLPC-XO) and software (Sugar) were
designed to work in situations where the Internet is not available.
The laptops can intercommunicate without any external infrastructure
(what we refer to as "under a tree" mode) so that teachers and
students can collaborate and share work without the need for the
Internet. If data is available on a USB key or SD card, it can be
shared among the students. Sugar comes with several activities that
are designed explicitly for this use case, such as Infosicer, which
lets a teacher, who may have occasional access to the Internet, to
make customized snapshots of the Wikipedia to be used in the classroom
offline. The Sugar developer community would appreciate any additional
ideas and feedback as to how we can make the Sugar experience richer
in such circumstances.
