During the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, access to worthwhile educational resources has been a necessity. During this time, students and other stakeholders in the community challenged by poor internet connection or non-existent internet infrastructure are put at a disadvantage. This paper describes the design and deployment of a community-based portable asynchronous content distribution through a mobile cloud network. The system was installed in a school and a community center with stakeholders given access to preloaded content via an offline mobile cloud network. Initial tests of the mobile cloud showed good network performance and Quality of Service indicating its potential as an alternative modality in asynchronous content distribution to facilitate learning.
