There are some tools which provide offline access to the entire Khan Academy and Wikipedia. Are there anything similar tools available for mobile devices?

So what apps do you think we should pre install?

To me the following apps are necessary to access online education:

Newpipe: ads free YouTube
Brave: ads free browser
Khan Academy: with offline access to all the videos
Briar: for messaging nearby students without internet.
Telegram
WhatsApp
Calculate: an offline game to practice mental maths
Pixel Wheels: an office racing game, because all work and no play is not good :)

Then there is me who is advocating to use self paced classes instead of live classes, so families with one smart device and multiple children can all access online education from that one device.

Together we are planning to distribute smartphones with pre recorded lectures and pre installed necessary apps.
