Missions Trip to Rwanda

by | Jun 1, 2009 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

I am headed to Rwanda on July 10th for a short-term missions trip.  My church, Immanuel Bible Church https://www.immanuelbible.net, is partnering with African New Life Ministries, https://www.anlm.org.  One of our projects is to build out a computer lab for the orphanage.  With limited funds, we need to maximize the donations on hardware and software.  Also, we are planning to purchase laptops for logistically reasons.  Given that, what machine and software would you install on that machine for middle to high school students?

So what does this have to do with content management or Armedia?  I’ll take the easy one first.  Armedia and its employees are helping support the effort with funds and labor.  Also, we are planting seeds for future Armedians. : )  As for content management, the hope is to eventually deploy a CMS solution to management ANLM digital assets.  Okay, this is not exactly what you looking for however every organization produces content.  Hopefully, they are managing it in an effective manner.  What does effective mean?  I’ll save that for another blog entry.

    Look @ PortableApps.com; They have a wide variety of reliable open source software and it is downloadable as one platform. Also look @ E-Sword

    So, I’ve gotten the laptops from TigerDirect for $299. Pretty good specs for elementary education – Acer Aspire AS5515 Refurbished Notebook Computer – AMD Athlon 2650e 1.6GHz, 3GB DDR2, 160GB HDD, DVDRW, 15.4″ WXGA , Vista Home Basic.

    I’m thinking about changing the OS to Windows XP Pro instead of Vista. Thoughts?

    Now to the software. I’ll check out https://www.portableapps.com and https://www.e-sword.net. I’m also looking at the following:

    Office – https://www.OpenOffice.org
    Antivirus – https://free.avg.com
    Web Protection – https://www.k9webprotection.com
    Google Apps (Earth & etc.) – https://earth.google.com/

    Any other ideas?
